CONCERT

CHANEL Pygmalion Days 2019 15th Anniversary

INTRODUCTION

The founder of CHANEL, Gabrielle Chanel, is said to have been a “Pygmalion”. She supported Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky, Raymond Radiguet, Luchino Visconti and Jean Cocteau. The word “Pygmalion” derives from Greek mythology, meaning a person who believes in, supports and develops talented artists.

CHANEL Pygmalion Days, based on such a spirit, is a concert series presenting artists selected annually to perform six concerts in a year at CHANEL NEXUS HALL. In this series, which marks our 15th, 73 musicians gained vital experience as performing artists. For 2019, five talented artists have been selected. It is our great pleasure to provide you the rare opportunity to see and hear them attain a deeper artistry with each concert.
