“Salle Gaveau Is A Parisian Music Haven, Standing Strong For A Century. From Classical Melodies To Haute Couture, It Echoes A Timeless Love Affair With The Arts.”


As you step into the Salle Gaveau, you're not just entering a concert hall; you're immersing yourself in a timeless love affair with music. The air resonates with echoes of history, where delicate notes of passion promise an enduring rendezvous with the enchantment of classical melodies. Designed by architect Jacques Hermant in 1905 and named in tribute to the French piano maker Gaveau, the hall was meticulously crafted with a keen focus on acoustics. Quickly becoming the city's foremost music venue upon its inauguration in 1907, it rose to prominence in Paris.

Located in the heart of Paris, the Salle Gaveau stands as a vibrant symphony of resilience and artistry. With elegance, it navigated through the turbulence of two world wars, offering solace through performances for soldiers and victims. Throughout the interwar period, it played host to celebrated musical talents in Lamoureux concerts. This tradition of captivating performances continued in the post-war era, reaching its pinnacle in 1955 when the hall welcomed notable artists of the mid-20th century. Serving as a testament to the indomitable spirit of art, this concert hall proudly stands tall, defying the relentless march of time.

In 1963, Gaveau House faced a seismic threat to its sustainability, succumbing to bankruptcy and relinquishing its opulence to an insurance company. Despite the encroachment of urban development, the historic hall narrowly escaped transformation into a parking lot, thanks to the efforts of music enthusiasts Chantal and Jean-Marie Fournier, who rescued it in 1976. Over the subsequent 25 years, they infused new life into the venue. Enrolled in the historic inventory in 1982 and classified in 1992, Gaveau House was shielded from further harm but remained in a lamentable state. Despite restoration efforts, structural wear and tear persisted, prompting custodians to seek subsidies. Today, Salle Gaveau captivates audiences with a diverse array of events, ranging from lyrical concerts and conferences to jazz performances. The venue has evolved to encompass a wide spectrum of musical experiences while remaining faithful to its rich legacy. During a recent meeting with Marie-Automne Peyregne, the Production Director at Salle Gaveau, we delved into the ongoing activities of this venerable 112-year-old establishment.

True to its rich legacy, Salle Gaveau proudly represents some of the most prestigious musicians and singers from around the globe. In recent years, the venue has expanded its focus to include captivating fashion shows, notably featuring the incredible collections of haute couture designer Julien Fournie, who has astounded audiences for the past three seasons.

Even after more than a century, Salle Gaveau remains as prestigious as its opening day. We were delighted to have the opportunity to arrange a photo shoot with Marie, engaging in a conversation about her profound love for music and the arts in this wonderful venue, a place where countless dreams have come to life.
