Not least, among its bibliothèques... The following are a few which may be encountered, both online in their often-beautiful digital-library formats, and physically located in their often-beautiful premises in the Paris 8ème --
"In the heart of Paris, on a quiet street near the Parc Monceau in the 8th Arrondissement, an elegant private house is the home of the Médiathèque Musicale Mahler, a unique resource center for music professionals and students.
"This institution, named after one of the most universally acclaimed composers of the 20th century, was founded in 1986 by the noted musicologist Henry-Louis de la Grange and the music-critic Maurice Fleuret, who wished to make available to a large public their extensive collections of books, recordings, periodicals, and personal archives related to 19th and 20th century music. Since its opening, the library's collections have been regularly enlarged and updated, and it stands today as one of the most remarkable treasure-troves in the French capital for anyone -- composer or musician, musicologist or music student, orchestra conductor or festival director, radio or television producer -- whose professional activities are linked to the world of classical music.
"International in scope, the Médiathèque Musicale Mahler in Paris receives many visitors from outside France (in particular from Europe, the United States, and the Far East) who value the unique richness and historical significance of its collections. A full third of its users currently come from abroad..
"The Médiathèque Musicale Mahler in Paris offers a truly exceptional series of collections of classical music :
"Située dans un hôtel particulier proche du parc Monceau, la Médiathèque Musicale Mahler propose un instrument de travail unique à tous ceux dont les activités sont liées au monde de la musique classique -- compositeurs et interprètes, chercheurs et musicologues, producteurs de radio ou de télévision, responsables d'orchestres et d'institutions.
"La Médiathèque Musicale Mahler met à votre disposition :
"La Médiathèque Musicale Mahler est une association née en 1986 de la volonté de deux musicologues, Maurice Fleuret et Henry-Louis de La Grange, qui ont souhaité mettre à la disposition d'un large public leurs collections personnelles.
"La Médiathèque Musicale Mahler est connue bien au-delà de nos frontières pour la valeur et l'importance historique de ses collections : un tiers des visiteurs viennent de l'étranger (Allemagne, Grande-Bretagne, Scandinavie, États-Unis, Extrême-Orient...).
