Highlights

From the delicacy and melancholy of Schubert’s Winter Journey to an evening of Gluck and his contemporaries, the Philharmonie de Paris invites you to taste the art of singing... and of beautiful singing at that! The grandiose yet intimate setting of the hall will be a choice setting for all voice tessituras. The beautiful acoustics of the hall will allow you to enjoy all the inflections of the voice, the text, and the music to the fullest!

Story

The great baritone Matthias Goerne, a connoisseur of the Winter Journey, takes you along the painful footsteps of Schubert, who knows his end is near. Sabine Devieilhe is back in a German recital in which Berg rubs shoulders with Mozart, Wolff, and Strauss: an exercise that will showcase the clarity of her beautiful coloratura voice. Cecilia Bartoli, the great Italian mezzo-soprano in a Mozart recital, is not to be underestimated… her powerful notes will blow you away! And as for the vocal duets, the voices of Pretty Yende and Nadine Sierra, two rising stars of the singing world, are supported by Les Frivolités Parisiennes with Bellini, Bernstein, Delibes, and Donizetti on the score, and those of Véronique Gens and Lea Desandre will deliver the vocalizations beautifully invented by the great 18th-century composer, Christoph Willibald Gluck. Come experience these amazing voices for yourself!

Philharmonie de Paris

221 avenue Jean Jaurès, 75019 Paris

If Paris were to be defined in terms of monuments, we would include the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Pyramid, the Opéra Garnier, and the Opéra Bastille to name a few.. But from this list the Philharmonie de Paris is surely missing! This impressive monument, inaugurated on January 15th, 2015, is dedicated to symphonic music, chamber music, jazz and world music. Composed of over 340,000 aluminum shiny plates, its impressive facade of the Philharmonie de Paris has become a famous landmark of north-eastern Paris.

 

All types of music can be found at the Philharmonie de Paris. This venue hosts orchestras such as the Orchestre de Paris, Les Arts Florissants, the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France and welcomes major international orchestras, conductors, and musicians who make their difficult scores look easy as they perform them for 2,400 astonished spectators. The acoustic excellence of the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez, entrusted to New Zealand’s Sir Harold Marshall and Japan’s Yasuhisa Toyota, creates particularly favorable conditions for listening to pianissimo, pizzicato, or even delicate harp chords.

 

The soft colors of the blond wood featured in the hall paired with the balconies, which seem to loom weightless, create a real sense of intimacy, especially since the distance between the conductor and the closest listener is a mere 32 meters! A hall that holds a sense of esteemed intimacy despite its size, and with an international and varied programme... You must experience it for yourself first-hand!
