Salle Cortot
About
Built in 1929, in a pure New Art style, its acoustic quality is one of the most exceptional in Europe and pleases the Paris audience. Auguste Perret, who is also the architect of the Champs-Elysées Theatre, designed one of his greatest realizations.Integrated to the "Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris", this concert hall of which Cortot said "it sounds like a Stradivarius" is, in all respects, a unique place.Classified as a French Historical Landmark and located in the heart of Paris, it offers, with an average size, curved ranks ideally dispatched around the stage, which sets you in the middle of the sound.With beautiful panelling and a circular stage, on which well-known artists have played, the Cortot Concert Hall is one of the most appreciated music theatres in Paris.

This is a small venue, but highly respectable and decades old. It gives you marginal musical performers, generally in recitals.

In our case, it gave us the worst concert-going experience I can remember.

We arrived at 7:50 for the 8:30 piano recital of Sylvain Gettler, because seats were unreserved (which I anyway detest). Gradually, around 25 people--very few--lined up behind us. At 8:35, I was able to persuade my companion that we should leave.

There were no lights on inside the entrance at any time. There was no notice on the door. They had not e-mailed me, though they had my e-mail address. The concert had been cancelled. A non-event, if you looked the next day at the Cortot web site or that of the presenter (which in this case was the performer).

I wrote irate e-mails to both Cortot and the presenter, pointing out that they had stolen my money and intended to report them to the Police. Cortot did not reply! The performer said he had been suddenly taken ill, and said he would refund my money. I'm not counting on that.

This conduct by Cortot is inexcusable and damnable. They shouldn't be in the business. Standing in the cold isn't worth paying for.

Some friends from Paris invited us to join them for an evening at Salle Cortot. It was our first day in Paris so we were exhausted but I'm so very glad that we made the effort to go. It's is a beautiful hall and an intimate venue.
