The 2020 edition of the Festival Les nuits pianistiques d’Aix-en-Provence pays tribute to Beethoven, the great architect of the piano, on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of his birth.

The festival-academy Les Nuits Pianistiques

The festival Les Nuits pianistiques in Aix-en-Provence is a permanent and prestigious cultural event. Along with other great summer events it has been highlighting the cultural life of Aix and its region with its series of high quality concerts since its creation in 1993 by its artistic director, the French pianist Michel Bourdoncle.

International Academy of music

The Internatiomal Academy Les Nuits Pianistiques d’Aix en Provence, which takes place at the same time as the festival, has become a major musical training centre in Europe. Since 2006, training sessions and master classes have been organized with passionate musicians who teach their vocal or instrumental discipline to their French or international students.

other activities of the association Musiques-Échanges

One of our absolute priorities the diversification of activities. One of the concert scenes of Nuits pianistiques is part of Musique dans la Rue (Street Music). Also, since 2015, a concert program with young pianists is open for the residents of the Edouard Toulouse hospital, their relatives and also pupils from nearby schools. Moreover, the conservatory Darius Milhaud is the scene of numerous activities for young people.
