Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

6 & September 7, 2023

This fascinating snapshot of Russian music around 1910 brings together Petrushka’s sarcastic leaps, the liturgical depth of Rachmaninov’s Bells, and the intrepid modernism of young Prokofiev.


Concert

Igor Stravinski / Histoire du soldat

Saturday, September 9, 2023 at 6:00 pm

A label-defying work created for the simple stage of itinerant theatre, The Soldier’s Tale recounts the ‘disasters of war’. The score full of surprises is one of Stravinsky’s most original. 


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Semyon Bychkov

13 & September 14, 2023

Mahler’s longest symphony—a meditative, cosmic, sombre, lyrical and mysteriously speculative work—is a singular musical experience, marked by orchestral expressiveness and vocal wizardry. 


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Elim Chan

20 & September 21, 2023

Between heavenly delights and infernal visions, this programme takes us from the Orientalist melodies of Scheherazade to the jubilation of Offenbach’s opera buffa, with a diabolically rhythmic middle piece by Daníel Bjarnason, featuring soloist Martin Grubinger.


Paavo Jarvi

Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Paavo Järvi

27 & September 28, 2023

The Legend of Joseph calls upon dance to express the torments of faith and desire, while the Violin Concerto imposes its youthful vitality. These two Straussian works are here set upon a touchstone in the repertoire, César Franck’s mystical masterpiece.  


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

4 & October 5, 2023

Debussy, Ravel and Bartók all composed for the ballet, the showcase of the avant-garde in the early 20th century. This perhaps explains the sensuality and the visual dimension of their orchestral scores.


Concert Opera

George Benjamin / Lessons in Love and Violence

Thursday, October 12, 2023 at 8:00 pm

The new master stroke from the Benjamin/Crimp duo: with Shakespearean force, these lessons of tragic intensity project onto the stage the death struggle of heightened passions. A dramatic work that pales not before Hamlet!  


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Nathalie Stutzmann

Wednesday, October 18, 2023 at 8:00 pm

One of Beethoven’s most popular symphonies, introduced by two major figures of the Russian 20th century—forming a programme in vivid colour for orchestra and soloist alike.

Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at 8:00 pm

From the splendours of the Orient to the inner landscapes of Dowland and Schumann, this rich and eclectic programme draws the orchestra into vast and evocative realms.


Symphonic Concert

Gustav Mahler / Symphonie des « Mille »

24 & November 25, 2023

This legendary score, famously dubbed ‘of a Thousand’ by an impresario, threw symphonic norms to the wind. Mahler conceived it as an ode to the creative spark, the genius of humanity and the immensity of the universe.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Philippe Jordan

29 & November 30, 2023

Placing the orchestra in the spotlight, these two incomplete masterpieces—by Schubert and Bruckner—illustrate the Romantic symphony’s debt to the Germanic tradition.


Klaus Makela

Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

6 & December 7, 2023

Two emblematic composers and two illustrious opuses showcase the colour, lyricism and virtuosity of Russian romanticism.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

Wednesday, December 13, 2023 at 8:00 pm

A subtle alchemy of styles and periods permeates this programme placing two great masters of the Germanic tradition, Bach and Brahms, in dialogue with the rippled textures of Ligeti and a contemporary piece by Unsuk Chin dedicated to another titan, Beethoven.


Affiche Transfiguré - 12 vies

Show

Transfiguré - 12 Vies de Schönberg

from 9 to January 11, 2024

Arnold Schönberg, a defining figure of modernism and founder of the ‘Vienna School’, embodies an aesthetic turning point closely linked to the most horrific history of the 20th century: to convey the range of his genius, twelve stations are not too many.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Lahav Shani

17 & January 18, 2024

In this programme of paradox—that of coming to peace from the depths of despair or sensing the abyss in a moment of serenity—the tranquillity of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto stands in contrast to Mahler’s Sixth, a tumult of drama, chaos and threats.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

24 & January 25, 2024

An evening of contrasts juxtaposing the cosmic magnetism of Anna Thorvaldsdottir, the narrative vigour of a quasi-autobiographical Strauss, and the passionate romanticism—at once tender, epic and lyrical—of young Chopin.


Concert with video

Orchestre de Paris / Esa-Pekka Salonen

January 31 & February 1, 2024

Esa-Pekka Salonen leads the orchestra in a rendering of Debussy’s Images, punctuated by the pianistic poetry of Jean-Yves Thibaudet, as if to introduce Stravinsky’s galvanizing Les Noces, accompanied by the custom designed graphics of Hillary Leben. 


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Esa-Pekka Salonen

7 & February 8, 2024

Exploring the musical notion of image this season, Esa-Pekka Salonen leads the orchestra in examining the mysteries of painting and offers a colourful homage to the iconic father figure of music, Bach.


Kaija Saariaho

Symphonic Concert

Hommage à Saariaho

Thursday, February 15, 2024 at 8:00 pm


Concert with video

Ballets russes

28 & February 29, 2024

Produced in collaboration with the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, this special concert of three of Stravinsky’s mythical ballets gives ‘carte blanche’ to three inventive film artists, for an evening of not only reverie but also new readings and perspectives. 


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

6 & March 7, 2024

The meeting of two monuments in the Russian repertoire: Rachmaninov’s Concerto No. 2, the most famous of all, and one of Shostakovich’s most gloriously narrative Symphonies, a page in history and fervent indictment of all tyrannies.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Christoph Eschenbach

3 & April 4, 2024


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Haydn

Wednesday, April 10, 2024 at 8:00 pm

Profuse, incredibly inventive and always surprising, Haydn seems to have both invented and surpassed the ‘classical style’, as reflected in this programme of contrasts, to which a new work by Helen Grime adds a moving tribute. 


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Haydn

Thursday, April 11, 2024 at 8:00 pm

A tribute to Haydn’s insatiable genius and ironic spirituality, with this electrifying programme that concludes with Ligeti’s enchanting sound textures—intricate polyphonies in which music seems both to be born and to disintegrate.


Symphonic Concert

Carmina Burana

17 & April 18, 2024

A programme that moves between religiousness and paganism—from table to altar—of Carmina Burana. As a bonus, a new work by Korean composer Unsuk Chin, master of colours and dreamy textures.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Herbert Blomstedt

24 & April 25, 2024

Bruckner’s last fully completed work, Symphony No. 8, displays extraordinary force, as if, in an epic gesture of testamentary synthesis, the composer sought to write not his final opus but the ultimate symphony. 


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

6 & May 7, 2024

A memorable Beethovenian celebration with this inspired pairing of an almost forgotten gem, his Elegiac Song, with the cultural monument that has become an emblem of the European Enlightenment, his Ninth Symphony.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at 8:00 pm

A programme designed as a captivating play of light and shadow, in which Schönberg’s night journey—exploring the bounds of passion—is a prelude to Mahler’s ardent fresco, bathed in chiaroscuro, on the ideal life.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä

Thursday, May 16, 2024 at 8:00 pm

A programme designed as a captivating play of light and shadow, in which Schönberg’s night journey—exploring the bounds of passion—is a prelude to Mahler’s ardent fresco, bathed in chiaroscuro, on the ideal life.

The fabulous adventure of a little girl, Luz, plunged deep into the world of instruments and their mysteries. Families follow along on this journey, discovering Luz’s other companions—the ‘Sonidos’ with their changing colours and Beethoven’s Symphonies!


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä / Lang Lang

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 at 8:00 pm

A must-see concert, each piece as compelling as the last: Lang Lang’s fingers fly over the keys in a fiery Concerto by Saint-Saëns; a magnetic piece by Miroslav Srnka makes its French premiere; and we hear a Mozart symphony celebrating Parisian hedonism.


Symphonic Concert

Orchestre de Paris / Klaus Mäkelä / Lang Lang

Friday, June 14, 2024 at 8:00 pm

In its way of organising the coalition of individual sounds and the orchestral collective, Srnka’s Superorganisms operates as an ode to orchestra itself; the demonstration of orchestral versatility being continued with Mozart, Saint-Saëns and Mendelssohn.

Symphonic Concert

Israel Philharmonic Orchestra / Lahav Shani

Tuesday, September 12, 2023 at 8:00 pm

Nearly twins in terms of their lifetimes, Tchaikovsky and Brahms represent two faces (one Russian and one German) of Romanticism, at once powerful and intimate, traversed by the legacy of their forebears and the shimmer of melancholy. 


Symphonic Concert

Symphonieorchester des bayerischen Rundfunks / Sir Simon Rattle

Tuesday, October 3, 2023 at 8:00 pm

Mahler’s Sixth, sometimes called his ‘Tragic’ symphony, impresses with its emotional power. With a well-established reputation in interpreting the Austrian composer’s repertoire, Simon Rattle and the Bavarian Radio Orchestra are the performers of choice. 


Symphonic Concert

London Symphony Orchestra / Sir Antonio Pappano

Tuesday, October 17, 2023 at 8:00 pm

An epic pairing: Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 pulses with uniquely rhythmic energy unmatched in the orchestral repertoire; and the large-scale orchestra developed by Strauss became emblematic of German Romanticism in the late 19th century.


Symphonic Concert

The Philadelphia Orchestra / Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Sunday, October 29, 2023 at 4:00 pm

This first of two evenings dedicated to Rachmaninoff by the Philadelphia Orchestra, in honour of the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth, feature his 1907 Second Symphony and his later Fourth Piano Concerto.  


Symphonic Concert

The Philadelphia Orchestra / Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Monday, October 30, 2023 at 8:00 pm

A major leap, from an ambitious symphony by a young Rachmaninoff, his first in the genre, and a virtuoso fantasy for piano and orchestra that composed at age 60. Between the two is his famous Vocalise, in its orchestral version.


Vocal Concert

Teatro di San Carlo

Thursday, November 9, 2023 at 8:00 pm

Founded in 2021 by Stéphane Lissner, the Académie du Teatro San Carlo has already established itself as a preeminent ambassador of the prestigious Neapolitan opera house. It offers a tribute to Mozart and to five composers with ties to Paris.

Symphonic Concert

Mahler Chamber Orchestra / Yuja Wang

Saturday, January 20, 2024 at 8:00 pm

Monday, January 22, 2024 at 8:00 pm

Symphonic Concert

Czech Philharmonic / Semyon Bychkov

Saturday, March 23, 2024 at 8:00 pm

Neither Firkušný’s recordings nor Sviatoslav Richter and Carlos Kleiber’s interpretation were enough to secure the status of Dvořák’s Piano Concerto. But this did not dissuade Bertrand Chamayou, accompanied by Semyon Bychkov and the Czech Philharmonic.  


Symphonic Concert

Münchner Philharmoniker / Daniel Harding

Friday, April 19, 2024 at 8:00 pm

After their joint concerts at the Philharmonie de Paris in late 2021, where we heard them in a repertoire from the first half of the 20th century, Daniel Harding and Renaud Capuçon return to perform Escaich’s new violin concerto.
