Within private homes in Marais and Île Saint-Louis


Saturday, June 5, 2004, 02:30pm-06:30pm and 04:00pm-08:00pm

This musical tour in Marais and Ile Saint-Louis districts of Paris proposes works performed by some of today’s great soloists as well as a performance by the composer Jean-François Laporte, created using "invented" instruments. A rather unusual context for the performance of contemporary music, which in leaving the concert hall, offers itself to the appreciation of passers-by.
