Have you ever stopped to think that some exceptional music has been composed and performed in the monuments and historic sites we all visit?

From America to Europe, from New York to Vienna, Paris, Berlin, Venice and Granada, for over a 1000 years, the greatest composers have devoted their most beautiful masterpieces to these monuments. These memory sites o er in nite musical riches.

[Resonances] draws on Harmonia Mundi’s prestigious back catalogue to restore this monumental heritage: 8 volumes of 2 albums, complete with illustrated booklets, maps and chronologies, accompanied by a comprehensive website.

Between the end of the 19th century and the Second World War, Paris shared with Vienna the status of musical capital of the world. The 23 works featured on these two discs are the living reflection of those rich years of Parisian history, teeming with music and traversed by many different artistic movements. A plan of Paris and chronological tables invite you on a journey through the traces left by time – not forgetting the imaginary journey of foreign composers in love with Paris, whose music embodied their dreams.
