Story: Symphonic Concerts at the Philharmonie de Paris

From the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin to the Met Orchestra conducted by the same conductor, or the London Symphonic Orchestra under the baton of Simon Rattle, or the San Francisco Symphony under the baton of Salonen… these orchestras have it all! The preciseness of the conductors and musicians mixes beautifully with the violence and poetry of the symphonies at the Philharmonie de Paris. Soloists such as Angel Blue (soprano), Martha Argerich (piano) or Renée Fleming (soprano) will bring additional nuances of feelings to an already full plate. A night full of sensations you must experience for yourself!

History and Fun Facts about the Philharmonie de 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!

I bought premium tickets for the Symphonic Concerts at the Philharmonie de Paris and I haven’t received them yet. Is this normal?

Yes, it’s completely normal! Your order will first be created as a pre-booking so that the Philharmonie de Paris can assign your seat. You may see a pre-payment on your card, but rest assured that we will not charge your card until your reservation has been validated by the Philharmonie de Paris.
