What you can expect

Did you know that Paris became the capital city of the most important musicians and painters at the beginning of the XX Century? Allow me to tell you all about this beautiful historical period.

I'm a Peruvian composer and pianist living and performing in Paris for the past 12 years. I've moved to Paris to perfect my composition techniques and to further develop my experience of live performance. It's my pleasure to go on a musical journey with you! We'll visit the best Parisian venues where historic events in music took place.

Let's start by admiring the historic building of the Opera Comique founded by Louis XIV in 1714.

After that, we take Boulevard des Capucines heading to the Opera Garnier. Once we arrive at there, we will enter this magnificent building and explore its history and importance for the world music scene. I will give historical aspects of its construction and acoustics that make them one of the best in the world.

After that, we will pass Cafe de la Paix and admire its Second Empire architecture. Next, we will stop at the Olympia, a legendary "variétés" music venue where Edith Piaf and the Beatles performed.

Next, we'll arrive at the Eglise de la Madeleine. It is a beautiful church built by Napoleon. The funeral of Chopin took place here. And there are concerts almost every day.

During the tour, we'll have a relaxing break with traditional French coffee at a local cafe with an enjoyable view. I'll tell you more about the places we have visited and will give you personal recommendations for your trip.

For the final stop, we'll visit the greatest music shops where musicians from around the world look for their instruments and scores. If there is a piano available I will perform one or two piano pieces just for you!
Feel free to give me a shout if there's anything you would like to add or change to this experience. I can always customize it for you!

I give recitals with my compositions (piano solo and voice.) The style is classical pop. I know Parisian cultural life very well. I am a daydreamer and I'm constantly inspired by my sourroundings. I love art exhibitions and a delicious meal. I enjoy very much meeting new people."
