While most of the province have not yet unveiled their programmes, the main rooms and Parisian formations have announced their 2010-2011 season. A season often swept by a welcome air of renewal, heated in the Sun of curiosity.
The Orchestre de Paris (01.42.56.13.13), guided by the Estonian Paavo Järvi on navigate to Northern Europe (Sibelius, Grieg, Arvo Pärt), Russia (Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Shostakovich) but also the France (Dukas, Fauré, Duruflé, Escaich) without ignoring the large repertoire of Haydn to Berg. A few famous chopsticks (Maazel, Dohnányi, Zinman, Salonen) share the rudder with young talented chefs (Billy, Franck, Spinosi, Nelson, Noseda, Bringuier).

Mahler, which commemorates both the birth (1860) death (1911) in this season, is also celebrated at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées (01.49.52.50.50), now led by Michel Franck. The room remains fortunately faithful to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which will give an integral of the symphonies of Beethoven under the direction of Christian Thielemann (November), and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and the aristocratic Youri Temerkanov, who move away for a change of their Russian roots to Brahms (January). Some of the best formations (Rotterdam, London Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio, Dresden Staatskapelle, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Mahler Chamber Orchestra) will also be day. The lyrical scene occupies an important place in the calendar of the avenue Montaigne, since we can discover a new production of "Passion" of Pascal Dusapin, the "Orlando" of Handel (David McVicar and Emmanuelle Haim), the "Orlando furioso" of Vivaldi (Pierre Audi and Jean-Christophe Spinosi), "The scale of silk" of Rossini (Christian Schiaretti and Jean-Claude Malgoire) and a much-anticipated "Idomeneo" of Mozart (Stéphane Braunschweig and Jérémie Rhorer).
As in the usual, Laurent Bayle reserves in the city of music (01.44.84.44.84) and at the salle Pleyel (01.42.56.13.13) a permanent festival whose wealth prohibits a detailed presentation.

In the room of the rue de Faubourg Saint-Honoré, shoving the names of Bartoli, Abbado, Boulez, Chailly, Davis, Eötvös, Gardiner, Gergiev (Mahler again), Gilbert, Haitink, Harnoncourt, Jacobs, Jansons, Lupu, Pollini, Sokhiev, Terfel, Tilson Thomas: What breathtaking.
