Concert Hall Pleyel ( FR. Salle Pleyel ) - a hall for concerts of symphonic music for 1900 seats in the VIII arrondissement of Paris near Charles de Gaulle Square . Built in the Art Deco style , it is considered one of the largest halls of the 20th century.
The concert hall was opened in 1927 instead of the eponymous hall, which had existed since 1839 on Rocheshoir Street and also played an important role in the musical life of the French capital. The new Playel Hall has received over 25 million spectators during its 20 thousand concerts. This is the only audience in Paris specially built for symphonic music, other orchestral concerts are held in the hall of the House of French Radio France and in the hall of the Gavaux ( salle Gaveau ), smaller in size, or in the theater of the Champs Elysees and the theater of Chatelet , whose halls are built in the Italian style .
The hall underwent numerous restorations, the latter lasted 4 years and ended in September 2006. After the restoration, the hall became the home venue for the Paris Orchestra and the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra .
The Pleyel Hall is managed by the Directorate of the Paris Music City , which will also lead the planned Paris Philharmonic Hall with a hall for orchestral concerts with 5000 seats.
