Story: Vocal Masterpieces at the Philharmonie de Paris
How do you experience these great masterpieces? By attending a concert version at the Philharmonie de Paris of course! After all, there is nothing to detract from the beauty of the music, the singing, and the message that the composer envisioned. All the beauty of Haydn’s idealized picture of peasant life in The Seasons, the intensity of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Handel’s magical vision in Alcina and the profound spirituality of Bach’s St Matthew Passion are fully expressed on stage. The conductors are well renowned and are accompanied by their ensembles in full confidence. Welding the baton is the great William Christie for Les Arts Florissants, the delicate Marc Minkowski for Les Musiciens du Louvre, the baroque enthusiast Jordi Savall for La Capella Nacional de Catalunya and the French conductor Christophe Rousset for Les Talens Lyriques. Come experience this amazing night 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 Vocal Masterpieces 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. Once the reservation is validated, you will receive your ticket by e-mail. Due to the large number of requests that the Philharmonie de Paris has to manage, this process usually takes two days, but can take up to six days maximum. After six days if your order has not been validated, it will be canceled, the pre-charge will disappear, and you will not be charged.
