Quebec in Paris, the new festival from ATMA Classique!

ATMA Classique brings Quebec to Paris! From April 14 to 16, 2023, the acclaimed Canadian music label inaugurates a new festival with four exceptional concerts in the elegant library La Grange-Fleuret (Paris VIIIe).  Quebec to Paris brings together artists, industry professionals, and members of the public from France and Quebec, inviting them to share musical ideas and also to maintain the strong ties that unite the two countries. Quebec to Paris is a unique opportunity to (re)discover some of the best Canadian musicians: soprano Karina Gauvin, cellist Stéphane Tétreault, bandoneonist Denis Plante, baroque violinist Marie Nadeau-Tremblay and the viol duo Les Voix humaines formed by Susie Napper and Mélisande Corriveau.

An important place for music

The library takes its name from two great personalities of the music world: Maurice Fleuret, most notably director of music and dance under Jack Lang, and Henry-Louis de La Grange, a great biographer of Gustav Mahler. The two men wanted to make their collections accessible to the public by creating this library in 1986. Since then, the collections have been enriched with the archives of Alfred Cortot, Camille Saint-Saëns, and Marguerite Long. In 2016, the library joined forces with the Royaumont Foundation to bring together their documentary and heritage collections.

A prestigious address

Located a few steps from the Parc Monceau and the musicians’ district of the rue de Rome, the library is housed in a beautiful mansion in the 8th arrondissement. Built in 1867 by the Viscount of Dampmartin, the building is located in this district where the Parisian upper middle class settled at the time, along with artists, composers, and actors who enhanced cultural and social life. Renovated between 2019 and 2021, the venue offers luminous and elegant spaces, perfectly adapted to concerts.
