Leading orchestras from around the world come together at the Philharmonie de Paris.
The Symphonic Hall, known as the Grande salle Pierre Boulez, offers ideal conditions for the symphonic repertoire. A remarkable architectural feat, with its “enveloping” design and exceptional acoustics, the hall accommodates spectators in a uniquely intimate setting thanks to unparalleled closeness to the stage.
This season, the MET Orchestra (with Yannick Nézet-Séguin) will perform for the first time at the Philharmonie de Paris. From Russia, the Mariinsky and Bolshoi orchestras will also be present, conducted by Valery Gergiev and Tugan Sokhiev respectively, as well as the Russian National Orchestra (with Mikhail Pletnev). The Staatskapelle Berlin (with Daniel Barenboim), the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig (with Andris Nelsons), the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (with Zubin Mehta) and the Münchner Philharmoniker (with Valery Gergiev) will testify to the richness of musical life across the Rhine. The regular guests of the Philharmonie will parade throughout the season: London Symphony Orchestra (Simon Rattle and Michael Tilson Thomas), Czech Philharmonic (Symon Bychkov), Concertgebouworkest - Amsterdam (Philippe Jordan, Paavo Järvi), Chamber Orchestra of Europe (Vladimir Jurowski), Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia - Roma (Antonio Pappano), Budapest Festival Orchestra (Iván Fischer)...
