Salon Musical

Reliving the Glamour of Music, Drama & Poetry from a Golden age


"The receptions at rue de Douai were simple, tea and brioche, but one could hear good music… These receptions on Sunday evening were very different (from those of Saint-Saëns and Lalo) the queen of the house was allowed to romp at will. Half of the large salon was transformed into a stage, the dining room into a cloakroom, and they played the most ridiculous charades."
