After a record-breaking 2018 festival, the 2019 edition will see our faithful musical friends Jean- Yves Thibaudet and Gautier Capuçon performing trio works by Shostakovich, Ravel and Mendelssohn with the talented violinist Lisa Batiashvili. On Tuesday, June 25, a very original concert will present Svetlin Roussev and the Quartet 212 offering us, in mirror with Quinteto Astor Piazzolla, The Four Seasons of Vivaldi and Piazzolla. We will have the pleasure of hearing again soloists of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, sharing the stage with musicians from the greatest European orchestras, performing Serenades by Dvořak and Mozart in the Meursault church.

Soprano Gabriella Reyes and cellist Caroline Sypniewski, Young Talents of the 2019 vintage, will have the privilege of opening the festival on Saturday, June 22nd, in Beaune with the Dijon Bourgogne Orchestra under the baton of David Chan. To close this 2019 edition, we are honored to welcome the Italian conductor Daniele Gatti, who will lead the Orchestre des Climats de Bourgogne with Carmela Remigio in Mozart arias and Schumann’s Symphony no. 3 “Rhenish”.
Of course, we continue our commitment to young musicians through the “Young Talents” grant and the development of the Instrumental Fund, which has just ordered four additional instruments created by the greatest French and European luthiers.
All of this is possible thanks to the great generosity of our patrons, our partners, and all the Burgundy domains. We thank them warmly.
Enjoy the festival!

Aubert de Villaine and Bernard Hervet
