Many roads lead to music – and some take more turns than others. Our «Backstage» series reflects that, offering guidance in the form of a mix of films, talks, conversations, and much more, providing an array of insights into, and perspectives on, the world of music.

Backstage has long been part of the concert experience in a number of subscription series. Before the «Grands rendez-vous» concerts, for example, Daniel Finkernagel presents conversations with OPL musicians that offer a succession of fresh insights into orchestral routine and some fascinating life stories. «Musiques d’aujourd’hui» becomes easier to understood thanks to a variety of workshop conversations with composers and performers. And after concerts in the «On the border» series, boundaries fade away over a drink. In a new move, in the 2016/17 season, most concerts in the string quartet and piano recital series are also accompanied by complementary events.
