On the occasion of the French presidency of the Council of the EU, the BnF is proposing a European Music Season from 1 January to 28 June 2022. Highlighting the continuity and variety of cultural transfers between the different countries of the EU, it presents works of European composers from the 17th to the 20th century composed in France or for France, and for which the BnF holds essential sources (manuscripts, , etc.). Organised with Radio France and France Musique, the c.20 concerts take place on the various sites of the BnF, and in theatres in Paris and elsewhere.
On 18 March, the Ukrainian anthem will be played by the musicians as an opening to the concert.
