Partner Ensembles


The orchestras, ensembles and artists who made the programming at the Cité de la musique and the Salle Pleyel so excellent continue to shine at the Philharmonie – an illustrious new setting for both French musical culture and prestigious ensembles from around the world.

The Philharmonie de Paris is an international presence, and a special destination for the best orchestras in the world, which are among its regular guests of honour. At the Philharmonie, one can take in a concert by the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, the Brussels Philharmonic, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe or the Berliner Philharmoniker, and others such as the Mariinsky Theatre Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela or the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra.

Finally, other French orchestras (such as those of Toulouse, Lille and Lyon, Les Siècles, Les Dissonances, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, the Chambre Philharmonique or the Orchestre du Conservatoire de Paris), large Baroque ensembles (Les Musiciens du Louvre, Le Concert Spirituel, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin or the English Baroque Soloists) and the Accentus chamber choir founded by Laurence Equilbey, all add to the vibrancy of the Philharmonie.
