ABOUT US

Named after the Nouvelle Athènes district of Paris, where Chopin, Liszt, Georges Sand, or Delacroix were inventing new musical, pictorial or literary forms in the 1830s, the association La Nouvelle Athènes aims to recreate, in the spirit of the salons of the time, the ideal conditions for a dialogue between musicians, piano collectors, restorers, Master Artisans, and a growing public of music lovers who are passionately interested in the origins of the piano, from 1750 to 1850.

La Nouvelle Athènes is in the process of building a collection of period pianos of public interest, and aims to encourage the sharing of knowledge and performance practices originating in the great 18th Century keyboard tradition, the study of written sources, and of the early recordings of the direct disciples of Chopin, Liszt, Schumann or Brahms.

You can take part in this enthusiastic new reading of the Romantic repertoire by coming to our concerts and workshops in Paris, or following the videos of concerts and masterclasses on our internet site, or on social media.

La Nouvelle Athènes - thought collectively - including modern pianists, harpsichordists, "historically informed" pianists, restorers, collectors and musicologists, was able to unite and propose in just one year, several times of sharing, transmission of knowledge and practices, the purchase of 2 romantic pianos, the starting point of a collection of general interest.
