Edito

After celebrating our 10th anniversary in 2017, we continue to bring together great musicians, singers, and conductors, as well as young talents, for this 11th festival.
Along with faithful artists Gautier & Renaud Capuçon, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Emmanuel Krivine, the MET of New York, and the Berlin Philharmonic, we welcome for the first time Janine Jansen and Joseph Calleja. 2018 Young Talents tenor Kang Wang and trumpet player Florian Pichler will open the festival on Saturday, June 23, in Beaune. We will have the pleasure of hearing the Mozart’s Gran Partita at the Meursault church with 13 instrumentalists.

Today, we have the support of 60 Burgundy domaines and 16 violins, violas and cellos have been made. These instruments carry the name of one of the 33 Grands Crus of Burgundy and symbolize the Festival essence through passionate encounters between artists and winemakers.
The Orchestre des Climats de Bourgogne, under the direction of Emmanuel Krivine, brings together soloists from the entire world and our young talents from previous festivals. It will close our festival with the luminous violin of Renaud Capuçon and the velvet voice of Joseph Calleja.

Artistic Director's note

I am often asked how I come up with programs for concerts, which is a very good question but not one that necessarily has a simple answer. When the question comes from someone who knows wine, I smile, because I can then easily explain that it is very much like choosing wines for a special dinner. A truly thoughtful selection goes well beyond simply offering a handful of good wines.  Properly chosen, the wines will not only complement the dishes with which they are served, but also present some kind of logical progression or comparison/contrast.  But at the end of the day, sometimes the most unlikely pairings can work brilliantly; there can be an underlying connection that is not obvious on paper, but becomes apparent when experienced in context.

Similarly, concert programming at its best goes beyond the tried-and-true formula of overture, concerto, and symphony. That formula is successful because it provides a distinct beginning, middle, and end. In other words, it offers a true progression. But it is not the only possible road map; and today, more than ever, alternate routes are often preferable to keep programming fresh and interesting. The point is that there must be an internal logic to the program, an underlying terroir if you will, that binds the musical thread together.
After last summer’s enormously successful 10th edition of Musique et Vin, one might quite reasonably ask what the next 10 years hold in store for the festival.  If it not too presumptuous for me to suggest that, after 10 years, our music has itself become one of Burgundy’s fabled terroirs, then we can think of each successive season as a new vintage:  bringing something familiar each time; but always shining the light on new possibilities, or on a facet that may have hitherto been hidden.
Thank you for joining us for our 11th season, and enjoy the music – and the wine!
