Music fans can no longer go to concerts. But they have something to enjoy from morning to evening on social networks.
Alert, Jean-Louis Aubert launches a Facebook Live ! Cali is coming to Instagram! Arte puts a concert online at noon! After three weeks of confinement, the artists and media are so active on social networks that we no longer know where to turn. If you want to spend a day in music, here are ten daily appointments for all tastes.
9 hours. We wake up with Rufus Wainwright
Confinement is also an opportunity to discover artists. And to share with you our love for the American Rufus Wainwright. Every morning, this genius jack of all trades – pop singer, composer of operas and film scores – sends (with nine hours of difference) on his Instagram a postcard from Los Angeles. He welcomes him in his dressing gown, feeds his fish, sings on the piano or on the guitar one of his beautiful “quarantunes”, “quarantine songs”. Smiling and delicate, ideal to start the day off on the right foot.
10:30 am A Biolay for breakfast
He does it according to his desires. Up to three times a day. So difficult to give a fixed time to find Benjamin Biolay and his six strings on his Instagram account . But whether he takes over Daho, Gainsbourg, Reggiani, The Louis Trio affair or his own marvels, like “Your Heritage”, it’s always a joy. If you like sensitive strings, those of violinist Renaud Capuçon at 11 a.m. on Twitter are also highly recommended.
Midday. A concert to whet your appetite
From Monday to Friday, Arte Concert has three daily meetings on Facebook . At noon, she broadcasts one of her 6000 shows, from metal to classic, which can be commented on live. Monday, it will be Manu Dibango , Tuesday, Quincy Jones, Wednesday, Juliette Armanet… At 4 pm, an artist intervenes from his home live and in interview, for at least twenty minutes. Irma, Asgeir and Emilie Simon are among others on the program for the coming days. Finally, from 7 p.m. to midnight, Arte broadcasts, always live but from a Berlin club, a DJ concert.
14 hours. Boxed with Bob Sinclar
“I’m at home, I can’t do anything but music. If you want a particular record, tell me, I have 30,000 vinyls here. Confined to Marseille, DJ Bob Sinclar goes to the turntables every day from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. to dance the whole world with Facebook using themed playlists. It’s very fun but also touching when he pays tribute to Manu Dibango.

15 hours. A stroll in the Aisne
Without transition, we leave the dance floor for the Sainte-Thérèse d’Hirson church in Aisne. Former church, it should be noted, since it has been the home of classical pianist Kit Armstrong since 2012 . Confined with his piano, the 28-year-old Anglo-Taiwanese virtuoso wants, on Facebook , to “offer a moment of escape” and pay homage to French composers. It succeeded. We listen religiously to his stories and his interpretations of Fauré, Couperin or Pachelbel.
18 hours. With the family at Henri From
“Hello dear, it’s me! It is Swiss precision. At 6:00 p.m., Henri DA is faithful to the appointment to share one of his famous refrains on his Facebook page. He hums the melody on the guitar then with the lyrics and gladly tells an anecdote… Notice to families, the other star of the playground, in rock’n’roll version, Aldebert has also started to make his lives on Instagram.
6.30 p.m. Make yourself a jazz gratin
Q West TV is the Netflix of jazz. Co-founded by the legendary Quincy Jones, nicknamed Q, this video on demand platform offers during confinement a free 30-day discovery of its 750 concerts and documentaries. As a bonus, it broadcasts at 9 p.m. a show on Facebook and YouTube, and at 10 p.m. on Instagram a never-before-seen live show of sizes such as Eric Bibb, Taylor McFerrin or Shelea.
8:30 p.m. Treat yourself to the Philharmonie
In five years, the Philharmonie de Paris has become one of the most popular European stages. The opportunity to see his old concerts – classical, song, rock and electro – every evening at 8:30 p.m. From Monday, we will vibrate with the soprano Sabine Devieilhe and the orchestra Les Siècles, then Les Arts Florissants, Richard Galliano and the Paris orchestra, a tribute to Frank Zappa, the New York Philharmonic, the electronic musician Rone… Que heavy! But beware, the concerts are only visible for 24 hours on live.philharmoniedeparis.fr.
22 hours. Francis Cabrel opens his treasure chest
It’s short, but it’s rare and often beautiful. Since March 16, the discreet Francis Cabrel has been playing a song and guitar every evening, a song he rarely or never performs on stage. Treasures like “I will be back soon”, “A star in his own way” or “The Cathar knights”, presented with humor and humility. No interaction because the title is recorded, but the interpretation and the sound are perfect. To (re) see on Facebook of Baboo Music , the label of his daughter Aurélie.
10:05 p.m. A glass, worms with Keren Ann
How about we end the day by sharing a glass of wine with Keren Ann on Instagram ? The singer gives an appointment every evening from 10 p.m. in her living room. A delicious moment when, singing, singing along with the guitar or the piano, her songs and her recaptures of heart, from Christophe to Dylan. She also reads poems and the messages entrusted to her (by email to email@example.com) of people confined for their distant loves.
