To prepare your visit and facilitate checks related to « Vigipirate » (France's national security alert system) reinforced at the Philharmonie de Paris, please arrive early.

Modelled after the Baroque organs of Germany, the Dupont organ in the Amphitheatre is ideal for interpreting the works of Bach. The programme alternates between this notable instrument and the rare claviorganum (a harpsichord-organ) played by Benjamin Alard.
