30 JUL - 05 AUG 2022

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
PHILIPPE HERREWEGHE

Dear music lover,

After two covid years, we are very pleased to be able to offer you a taste of a very wide range of more than 15 select concerts again this summer.
Instrumental and vocal chamber music and recitals from the Baroque to the present day, together with some pearls from the Renaissance, form the beating heart of our summer festival.



 

Big names such as Monteverdi, Bach, or Schumann stand alongside lesser-known composers such as Éduard Lassen, Louise Farrenc or György Kurtág. Talent, passion and integrity are the common denominators of the performers on the wonderfully varied bill!

You will find all the details below
