Thirty years after the Musee d'Orsay opened its doors for the first time, it has become as much a Paris landmark as its big sister the Louvre just across the River Seine. An average of 3.5 million visitors a year pour through its spectacular vaulted nave, making it the "most dense museum in the world", according to its director of collections Xavier Rey. Although the Musee d'Orsay is one of the top 10 most visited galleries in the world, it is several times smaller than its rivals.
John Legend has become known as a modern master of the ballad, probing the emotional depths behind love and discovering the darkness that lurks nearby. Releasing his fifth studio album on Friday, Legend stretches into new musical territory as he subtly broadens his conception of ballads, injecting elements of funk and rap. The new album is entitled "Darkness and Light" but instead of representing some sort of tug-of-war between the two forces, Legend sees them as intertwined -- no love song is spared from a touch of melancholy.
