y removing the stage, Le Salon de Musiques concerts series in Los Angeles offers a more personal touch to listeners eager to familiarize themselves with Chamber Music and learn through a new dialogue between artist and audience. When listening to a masterpiece, our attention inevitably falls on its history carried out through time and space. This is the magical instant when the alchemy between the melody of Chamber Music compositions and audience sparks. During this conversing phase, Le Salon de Musiques concerts series and its artists help the listener discover the unique sensitivity of the composers’ universe.

Consuls of France and Germany support

Year after year, “Le Salon des Musiques”, the series of exquisite chamber music under the direction of François Chouchan, has become a more prominent element in the cultural life of Los Angeles. Critics and audiences alike have been praising vividly the outstanding quality of performance and the sophisticated choice of repertoire of the series. One of its unique features is the framework that Chouchan has arranged around the music. The introduction of the works by a musicologist before, and the champagne reception after the performance develop a simple concert into a well balanced afternoon experience of its own. Everybody who has only once taken part in one of the “salons” will remember fondly the familiar atmosphere between musicians and audience, and nobody has returned home without having made new friends.

For the upcoming season, Francois Chouchan has again explored deeply the treasures of mostly European chamber music – and found some gems, several of them never having been performed in the New World before. The French and German Consulates General are proud to support the project and wish “Le Salon” a successful season 2015/16.

"Le Salon de Musiques is my favorite music series in town, a secret that shouldn't be kept any longer. This is our second season attending and we so enjoy the music, the conversation with the musicologist and musicians, the Patina food, the excellent champagne, the setting, the people. It is chamber music the way the masters intended it to be experienced. Don't miss it."
