From the moment of its creation, the Musée d'Orsay has established itself as a multidisciplinary space where the arts come together and interact. Painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, literature and cinema all attest to the richness of the 19th century, the source of our modernity. And music especially, in the museum’s galleries and auditorium, has occupied a special place from the outset.

The musical programming this year, when we welcome artists of international renown as well as representatives of the new generation, is once again prestigious and cosmopolitan. Thomas Hampson, Felicity Lott, Anna Caterina Antonacci, Sandrine Piau, Philippe Cassard, Gidon Kremer, Stéphanie d'Oustrac, Marc Coppey and many others, look forward to seeing you for a season with five major cycles.

Three of these directly accompany this season’s exhibitions: this winter - Dada Africa. Non-Western Sources and Influences (at the Musée de l'Orangerie), Degas, Dance, Drawing, and in the spring Symbolism in the Baltic Countries. The other two are in counterpoint to the collections: firstly, the residence of Felicity Lott, a true friend of the museum, and secondly,a tribute to Debussy as we celebrate, this year, the hundredth anniversary of his death.

Lunchtime (12.30 concerts) and evening recitals alternate in this rich programme - a diversity of formats adapted to all the rhythms of life.

Dear visitors and spectators, we wish you all a wonderful 2017-2018 musical season!
