Mu­sic at the mu­seum

There’s al­ways plenty to see at Paris’s Musée d’Or­say, but this month, there’ll be art of the acous­tic kind too, with the concert series, Ro­man­tique-Au­then­tique that starts on 21 Fe­bru­ary. With mu­si­cians play­ing compositions from a reper­toire of ro­man­tic mu­sic on pe­riod in­stru­ments, it is a mag­i­cal way to round off a win­ter Paris night. A ticket to the concert costs €14.
