L'Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris - The Building

Built in 1929, in a pure New Art style, its acoustic quality is one of the most exceptional in Europe and pleases the Paris audience. Auguste Perret, who is also the architect of the Champs-Elysées Theatre, designed one of his greatest realizations. Integrated to the "Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris", this concert hall of which Cortot said "it sounds like a Stradivarius" is, in all respects, a unique place.

Classified as a French Historical Landmark and located in the heart of Paris, it offers, with an average size (400 seats), 13 curved ranks idealy dispatched around the stage, which sets you in the middle of the sound.

With beautiful panelling and a circular stage, on which well-known artists have played, the Cortot Concert Hall is one of the most appreciated music theatres in Paris.

The place (and some additional reception rooms) can also be rented to companies, private persons and artists.
