France

France as a leading music country doesn’t need further recommendation. In the baroque era, it could compete with Italy, in the 19th century with Germany; during a great part of the 20th century, Paris was the musical capital of the world.

In this website, France takes up eleven sections of which five are devoted to Paris. From the centre of Paris, spirally follow the successive ‘arrondissements’ of the capital and the regions of the country.

As for Paris: the 9th arrondissement, the richest of musical memories, has been cut into a northern and a southern part. The Metro-stations mentioned are not necessarily the nearest to every address, but addresses which share a Metro station are in any case within walking distance.
