Château du Maréchal de Saxe, Yerres, FR



RECITAL "GRAND CRU"


On Saturday March 3, 2007, at 6:30 p.m., Raphaella Smits will play a recital in the beautiful Château du Maréchal de Saxe in Yerres near Paris, France.

This concert is one of the series Les Rencontres Musicales, organised by a group of castles and abbeys called Les Hôtels Particuliers.

More info about the series and the possibilities to combine concert and stay at the locations can be found at: < www.leshotelsparticuliers.com>.



"Messieurs les Anglais tirez les premiers !" ("Gentlemen Englishmen, you can fire first!")
That was the attitude of the Maurice de Saxe on the battle ground of Fontenoy in 1745. With his superb strategic skills he chased the ennemi once and for all.

King Louis XV was very grateful, promoted him to the rank of Maréchal and offered him the Château de la Grange that now is named after the Maréchal.



You can enjoy Raphaella's playing, a lavish dinner and a fairy-tale room in an enchanted scenery ... to welcome next Spring.

In the Avenue du Domaine-de-la-Grange in Yerres (91330), only 30 minutes away from the centre of Paris (via Porte de Bercy A 4 - direction Melun puis Provins: 20 km).

Maurice de Saxe (1696-1750), Maréchal de France
