For European Heritage Days 2021, the Philharmonie de Paris offers a free and self-guided tour of the Museum on Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19, 2021. Inaugurated on January 14, 2015, the new Cité de la Musique is a building of the future, our heritage and for the upcoming generations: thought up by Jean Nouvel to house the Paris Orchestra, music workshops and the Musée de la Musique, the building is a beautiful work that found its place in our heritage.
On the menu of these European Heritage Days 2020 at the Paris Philharmonie:
- Visit of the Musée de la Musique: Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Come along and discover the Musée de la Musique and its 1000 instruments and items as rare as uncommon such as the turtle guitar and the crystal flute.
- Partitions graphiques - Soloists from the Ensemble Intercontemporain - Zoxea - Léo Guédy Jazz Quartet - Félix Rozen - Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19 at 10 a.m.
The Musée de la Musique has been recently given two works by Félix Rozen: Opus Incertain (1981), graphic partition, and Pirocello, an instrument created by the artist. For European Heirtage Days, these works are displayed among the permanent collection and presented to the public by curator Christine Laloue. Forty years after its creation, Opus Incertain is performed live by the Léo Guédy Jazz Quartet, Zoxea and soloists from the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Each formation takes over this unique score to let us hear their jazz, rap and contemporary version.
Enjoy your musical tour!
