PARIS — The new concert hall here, the Philharmonie de Paris, rises like a flight of doves, its sprawling waves of concrete and steel designed by the star architect Jean Nouvel to symbolize the end of the “eternal ostracism” of the struggling neighborhoods nearby.

Construction of the Philharmonie de Paris, designed by Jean Nouvel, was mired in years of political wrangling, cost overruns and work stoppages.

was mired in years of political wrangling, cost overruns and work stoppages.

 

After seven years and long delays, the 386 million euro ($455 million) hall — clad in 340,000 interlocking gray, cream, pearl and ivory cast-aluminum birds on the wing — finally opens on Wednesday. President François Hollande of France will inaugurate the hall, and the Orchestre de Paris will play the Requiem by the French composer Gabriel Fauré in a memorial tribute to victims of last week’s terrorist attacks here.

The lingering question about the Philharmonie — after years of political wrangling, infighting, cost overruns and work stoppages — is whether it can truly emerge as a temple of sound that brings egalité to classical music. The hall is on the edge of the Parc de la Villette, in the 19th Arrondissement in northeast Paris, just inside the ring road that symbolizes the divide between the wealthy center of Paris and the working-class and poor suburbs outside of it. The challenge is to still attract aging concertgoers from the center, where most of the city’s established cultural institutions are, but also to reach new generations in the suburbs, or banlieues, long scorned by the City of Light.

“There is nothing else like this until now,” said Laurent Bayle, the Philharmonie’s president. “This is the first signature, cultural building of grand Paris in this area. Before, the Seine River has always defined the axis of other cultural institutions,” like the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay and Opéra Bastille...

One hundred and seventy-seven years ago,  on March 31, 1837, an unusual concert took place in Paris, pitting the pianistic skills of the two leading virtuosos of the time, Franz Liszt and Sigismond Thalberg. The contest was adjudged a draw.

Thalberg was a fine pianist according to contemporaries Mendelssohn, Hallé and Clara Schumann; even Chopin said that he ‘played excellently.’ There were inflammatory remarks in the press, rival concerts in the Conservatoire (Thalberg) and the Opéra  (Liszt) in March 1837 and this pianistic duel was the culmination.

Posterity has however heavily favored Liszt, with Thalberg a mere footnote in Romantic piano literature. If you’ll forgive the pun, it was a “Battle of the HANDS,” a digital confrontation of the two leading virtuoso pianists of the day, Thalberg and Liszt.

The concert took place at the Salon of the Princess Cristina Belgiojoso-Trivulzio, an Italian noblewoman who played a prominent part in Italy’s struggle for independence. She is also notable as a writer and journalist. She scored the social coup of the season at her Parisian salon close to the Madeleine. Ostensibly, it was the culmination of a three-day charity fundraiser in aid of Italian political refugees, but it REALLY was the artistic equivalent of a prize fight—the fists in question pummelling the piano keyboard.  Belgiojoso’s judgment was, “Thalberg is the greatest pianist, but there is only one Liszt.”...
