As Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris, one of the main resident ensembles, world-renowned Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi conducts the opening gala concert at the brand new Philharmonie de Paris building in France tonight.

Celebrations begin with the inaugural gala concert on January 14, when Järvi and the Orchestre de Paris are joined by soloists Hélène Grimaud, Renaud Capuçon and Matthias Goerne.

Commissioned especially for this opening, the programme includes the world premiere of French composer Escaich's Concerto for Orchestre.

The long awaited new concert hall in Paris, that was designed by award winning French architect Jean Nouvel and cost a staggering 386 million euros, will be inaugurated by French President François Hollande.

The Orchestre de Paris, conducted by Paavo Järvi, will also play the Requiem by the French composer Gabriel Fauré in a memorial tribute to victims of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris.
