" Good music comes to us through the Musicalta festival. Join us to the sound of international artists with great and varied musical styles! Come and thrill to the sound of music! "
27 years ago, we made the crazy bet of bringing an ambitious music festival to life outside the major urban centres. urban centers. Tens of thousands of festival-goers have been welcomed since 1996 and thousands of students have also attended the the Musicalta Academy. Transmission is one of Musicalta's essential axes and to convince us, many of our students are among the major performers of today's musical scene. Thus, we are particularly proud to see on stage for this 27th season, some of our former students such as Guillaume Bellom - pianist, Alban Lebrun - member of the Yako Quartet, as well as Pierre-Emmanuel Faye - pianist and of course Florent Mayet - conductor. Chamber music is in the spotlight this year. The string quartet is widely represented. The renowned Sine Nomine Quartet opens the season with a program that, from Haydn to Bartók, promises a "subtle balance between expressiveness and depth" (Classica 2019) of which they have been the secret since 1985, the year of their first success at the Evian competition. The young and brilliant Yako Quartet will take over to offer us numerous musical journeys throughout the Festival. From the Lord of the Rings, with the orchestra and the choir of the Festival Academy, to the final American program, they will make a choice stop around Chausson's Concert and Mozart's Piano Quartet with Guillaume Bellom and Francis Duroy. The piano is also in the spotlight this season, not only in chamber music but also in recital. Jonas Vitaud in July and Jeung Beum Sohn in August will delight us with two programs that are as different as they are unique. After several attempts cancelled by the health crisis, Aïman Mussakhajayeva will join us from Kazakhstan to finally make her violin resound in a very virtuoso program. As well as our Korean friends from Seoul who will offer us an evening of chamber music whose program and names of the artists will be revealed at the last moment. We are also pleased to welcome Vincent le Texier who will perform two cycles of Lieder with talented instrumentalists. A concert that will bring together Ancuza Aprodu, Maïté Louis, Felicia Terpitz, Vincent Hepp and Cristina Bellu around Mahler and Wolf. After the Lord of the Rings with the Yako Quartet on July 28, the choir and orchestra will perform the following day in MisaTango by Palmeri. A unique fresco that they will perform with Pierre-Emmanuel Faye on piano and Andrzej Rytwinski on accordion. The season will end with the Academy's choir and orchestra in a no less ambitious program led by conductor Luping Dong, including Mozart's concerto with the student flutists, Britten and Rheinberger's Stabat Mater.
