Salle Gaveau is a prestigious concert hall in Paris named after the French piano manufacturer Gaveau. Its season offers high-quality chamber music and piano concerts, often featuring musicians of international renown. Salle Gaveau was opened in 1907 and immediately became a popular entertainment destination. During the First World War the hall was used as a venue for morale-boosting concerts for war victims and soldiers. However, in 1963 the hall went bankrupt and was threatened with demolition to make space for a car park. Fortunately, two passionate music lovers, Chantal and Jean-Marie Fournier, rescued the Salle Gaveau and ran it for 25 years. Listed as an historical monument in the 1990s, recent restorations have returned the hall to its former glory.
