THE GRANGE-FLEURET LIBRARY
Discover this musical and historical venue where the first edition of the festival Le Québec à Paris will take place.
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.
