To accompany the exhibition “Napoleon the Strategist” (see above), the Musée de l’Armée in Paris has organised a cycle of 14 concerts, from 5 April, designed to bring to life the atmosphere of battles and other sounds from the Napoleonic campaigns, with music composed during the Napoleonic period as well as later works that refer to it. From the violence of the battlefield, the luxurious intimacy of an Imperial salon, or the grandeur of the Opera stage, music was undeniably a vehicle of Napoleonic strategy.
