The concert I attended at La Villette was in the "Amphitheatre" (which is down in the basement, actually) of the Cité de la Musique.

This concert was held at 11 o'clock on a Sunday morning, and was part of a festival called musikalia. The musicians were a flutist, a clarinetist, a pianist, a harpist and a string quartet, playing chamber music works for various combinations of instruments by Debussy, Calpet, Ravel and also by the contemporary French composer Eric Tanguy, who was in the audience and came up to make a few introductory remarks before his Second String Quartet was played.

Second photo: The Amphitheatre before the concert. It was pleasantly cool down there, by the way, on such a hot summer day.
