September Music Review

September 30th, 2013

With ‘la rentrée’ the Paris music scene is in full swing.  And with so many things to choose from (not just music, but art and theatre and various special events) I’ve had to pass on many concerts.  But among what one could have heard this past month in Paris, across all genres and venues, there was: Kris Kristofferson (needs no explanation!), the Deftones (metal from Sacramento), Jack Jackson (pop-folk), Jamie Cullen, John Zorn/Shai Maestro, Kenny Garrett (jazz, Festival de la Villette) and the  TechnoParade to name a few.  And for those who love classics, opera and vocal music – Lorin Maazel with the Vienna Philharmonic, The Makropulos Affaire (Janacek, Opera Bastille), Alceste (Gluck, Opera Garnier), Lucia di Lammermoor (Opera Bastille), Alessandro (Salle Pleyel) and Sandrine Piau (recital, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées to name a few!

And more to come in October – obviously.  If you’ll be in Paris in the coming months and need suggestions for concerts or help with tickets, please contact me!
