White Night – Nuit Blanche 2017 at Paris Philharmonie and Cité de la Musique

For the Nuit Blanche 2017, the Philharmonie and the Cité de la Musique host four nonstandard concerts all through the night and offer a special visit of the Cité de la Musique museum collections, filled with concerts, mini-conferences and in a special light staging focused on a theme “Shadows and Light” and the whole from 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.

On Saturday October 7, 2017, the Philharmonie celebrates its excellent acoustics – making you feel like you’re next to the musicians wherever you are seated in the room – by remaining open all through the White Night.

Four concerts will be performed:

  • In the amphitheater of the Cité de la Musique: the Night of the Quartet gives pride of place to four string quartets and piano trios from 8:30 p.m. to dawn.

  • In the Pierre Boulez room of the Philharmonie: Minimalist Night with James McVinnie, Lubomyr Melnyk and Bruce Brubaker play Philip Glass, Terry Riley and John Cage from 8:30 p.m. to 6 a.m.

  • In the concert room of the Cité de la Musique: One Night, One life, a concert dedicated to Pierre Henry from 8:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.

  • In the Studio of the Philharmonie: A Night in A, “Din”, nine hours of a nonstop sound unison around the music note A, from 8:30 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Moreover, the Cité de la Musique museum tunes up with the White Night and offers concerts and short conferences in a special light setting about “Darkness and light” from 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Here is one of the boldest programming of this White Night 2017: as soon as sun rises, we’ll go visit all the areas of the Cité de la Musique and the Philharmonie, motivated for a unique musical journey. Maybe we’ll fall asleep at 3 a.m. on our seat to slowly wake up at 6 a.m., hearing the piano dulling and stopping.

What a wonder!
