Highlights

Tired of soulless concerts? Ready to discover or rediscover magnificent works by well-known composers under the fingers of exceptional artists in an intimate and medieval setting? You have made the right choice! The Piano Passion Concerts offer you works by Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Schubert, Liszt, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff in the intimacy and wonderful acoustics of the Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre church, one of the oldest churches in Paris and still a place of worship today! Spirituality and music are a winning duo for sublime works!

Story

If you have never heard Schubert's Impromptu No. 2, Gluck's Orpheus Melody, Beethoven's Spring, Schumann's Forest Scenes, Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 5, Liszt's Mephisto-Valse, or Carlos Gardel's arias ? Well, now you have the opportunity to discover these marvels of the repertoire in a small medieval church in the heart of Paris that is almost unknown to the passers-by who hurry to the foot of the Notre-Dame. Situated in the shadow of the great cathedral, the church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre is the setting in which high-level professional artists meet to perform sumptuous pieces from the repertoire, either alone or in groups. Accompanied by an accordion, a cello, a violin, the voice of a soprano, a dancer, or all on its own, the piano can be listened to with passion and all types of passion are present in these lovely compositions.

History and Fun Facts about the Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre church

Almost in the shadow of Notre-Dame, opposite the Ile de la Cité, stands the church of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre in the Latin Quarter, where the Christians of the East have been worshiping since 1889. It is the Greek-Melkite-Catholic church of Paris. You have certainly passed by this small medieval church without paying attention. However, it is well worth a visit! One of the oldest churches in Paris, its construction was launched at the same time as the construction of Notre-Dame. It boasts a beautiful slab from the ancient Roman road from Lutetia to Orleans, a magnificent wrought iron pulpit, and an icon of Saint Julien, also known as Saint Julien l'Hospitalier. Finally, if you want to see what a North American locust tree planted in 1602 looks like, we invite you to visit the garden next to this original church to discover one! It is considered the oldest tree in Paris! As we said, this church is really worth a visit!
