Philharmonie de Paris

A nice scandal: The architect who built the Philharmonie in Paris, Jean Nouvel, will not attend the official inauguration tonight. In an article published by Le Monde he says the event is premature since the building is still a major construction site. Only the main hall is finished and Jean Nouvel says it makes no sense to inaugurate the new building without the adjacent foyers and other places. Our colleagues from ResMusica have pointed out that the musicians of Orchestre de Paris went on the stage of the hall last Monday only, without having made any acoustical tests. One only can ask: Why all this haste?
