Event details
 

Christian Thielemann, direction
Denis Matsuev, piano

 

An evening featuring two musical titans as charismatic conductor Christian Thielemann leads the musicians of the Dresden Staatskapelle and the energetic Denis Matsuev through a programme which is not short on sweeping perspectives or heightened Romanticism. After Weber’s magical overture comes Piano Concerto No. 2 by Liszt and its rhapsodic form in which several themes circulate like moods, showcasing the solo instrument in a natural way. In the second half, Brahms’s Fourth is the musician’s farewell to the symphony form. This is a moving work full of underground chambers and hidden erudition, which brought his intense musical life to a close.

Théâtre des Champs-Élysées
 

The Théâtre des Champs- Elysées is undoubtedly one of the finest venues in Paris . Built in 1913 , it has the distinction of having been designed by a group of artists architects Henry Van de Velde and Auguste Perret , the painter and sculptor Antoine Bourdelle , the painter Maurice Denis , and the crystal- René Lalique to do mention the main ones . He was the first Parisian theater to be built entirely of reinforced concrete.

 

Restoration of the Great Hall devoted to operatic performances , symphony concerts and dance was decided in 1985. Two years later , on 23 September 1987, the theater reopened its doors , completely renovated. Fifteen years after this important work it was decided to undertake a new renovation campaign , but to prevent the complete closure of the theater for an entire season , work is now carried by step during the summer . Then it is to replace aging equipment , to remedy wear certain parts of the theater and improve spectator comfort and artists during their visit . Thus in recent years, including the work involved the renovation of marble facade, replacing the carpet in the room with wooden floors , installation of a new fully decorated wooden concert to a significant improvement of acoustics, the orchestra pit and stage below .

 

The Théâtre des Champs- Elysées is now a modern working tool receiving each year nearly 300,000 spectators and a few thousands of artists and collaborators.

 

The Théâtre des Champs- Elysées , the jewel of French architecture of the twentieth century, was in 1953 one of the first buildings of contemporary architectural heritage to be classified as historic monuments . Since 1970 the Caisse des Dépôts owns the entire building 15 avenue Montaigne and principal patron of the theater.
