    For a century and a half, the Orchestre Colonne has devoted itself to musical life in Paris and to promoting French music. Great figures such as Edouard Colonne, Gabriel Pierné, Pierre Monteux, Paul Paray, Charles Munch, Pierre Dervaux, and Laurent Petitgirard have shaped the long history of the Orchestre Colonne. Berlioz owes the revival of his popularity to Edouard Colonne. In June 1910, Gabriel Pierné revealed the glittering Firebird to a stunned audience, followed in April 1911 by Suite No. 1 from Daphnis et Chloé (before Ravel had even completed the whole ballet). Now the orchestra has chosen Marc Korovitch as its music director, charmed by his energy and boundless inventiveness. This season, we are launching a new concept: inviting the audience to a “mystery” work – a sort of journey into unknown territory. This is the perfect programme to celebrate the Orchestre Colonne’s 150th anniversary in joyful style. None of these masterpieces have aged at all… and nor has the orchestra...
