At a very different point in the musical spectrum, this group of young musicians were playing to an appreciative audience in a somewhat run-down section of the arches surrounding the Place des Vosges.

I presume the group may well be from a music school and, from VT tips, it seems quite a few others have encountered different groups of classical musicians here. Check Vter Nemorino?s tip for a listing of reports . These musicians were playing one of Bach?s Brandenburg concertos ? and doing an excellent job of it. You hear about matching wine to meals: this was matching music to locale, if ever there was!

Had I not been bent on covering as much touristic ground as possible, I would have been very tempted to stay and soak up the ambience. Whether they are there daily I do not know, but my visit was on a Sunday.
