Overview

Pianist Khatia Buniatishvili, guest of the Taiwan Philharmonic Orchestra and its musical director Jun Märkl.

The piano phenomenon Khatia Buniatishvili blows codes out of the water with her off-the-beaten-track interpretations. A key figure on the international classical scene, the Franco-Georgian virtuoso "allows herself every emotion" and meticulously selects the composers in her repertoire. Hailed as one of Asia's finest orchestras, the Taiwan Philharmonic Orchestra, also known as the National Symphony Orchestra, performs a wide variety of works. With nearly 100 talented musicians, the orchestra performs a vast repertoire ranging from classical to contemporary music. For the past year, its musical director Jun Märkl has been working with a number of renowned conductors and international soloists, and has performed in prestigious concert halls in Taiwan and abroad, actively contributing to the cultural and musical enrichment of the region. The programme for this concert includes Tao of Meinong, a contemporary work by Yuan-Chen Li using elements of Hakka culture, followed by Tchaikovsky's famous Piano Concerto No. 1 and finally Dvořák's Symphony No. 8.

Venue Info

Théâtre des Champs-Elysées - Paris
Location   15 Avenue Montaigne

The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées is an entertainment venue situated near Avenue des Champs-Élysées, from which it takes its name. Its eponymous main hall may seat up to 1,905 people.

Commissioned by impresario Gabriel Astruc, the theatre was built from 1911 to 1913 upon the designs of brothers Auguste Perret and Gustave Perret following a scheme by Henry van de Velde, and became the first example of Art Deco architecture in the city. Less than two months after its inauguration, the Théâtre hosted the world premiere of the Ballets Russes' Rite of Spring, which provoked one of the most famous classical music riots.

At present, the theatre shows about three staged opera productions a year, mostly baroque or chamber works more suited to the modest size of its stage and orchestra pit. It also houses an important concert season. It is the home venue of the Orchestre National de France and the Orchestre Lamoureux and serves as a French base for the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra as well.

The Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées and Ensemble orchestral de Paris play most of their concerts here too, along with other dance, chamber music, recital, and pop events.
