• THE FESTIVAL-ACADEMY

    LES NUITS PIANISTIQUES OF AIX-EN-PROVENCE
    The list of teachers in the academy is online. It may be completed by the arrival of other teachers. The festival programme will be published soon.

The 29th edition of our festival and the 16th anniversary of the academy will take place from 26th July to 15th August 2021

After a year of silence and waiting, due to the global health crisis, the time has come to announce the programming of our stages and music classes. We hope that it will be even more extensive, in order to revitalise and strengthen our links with our audiences, our artists and our partners.
This new edition, after the cancellation of the Academy and the reduction of the Festival’s programming in 2020, aims to be a real springboard towards the celebration of our thirtieth anniversary in 2022.
We are continuing to extend our reach across the region, by welcoming exceptional towns and venues, in order to reach out to audiences and offer them experiences with and around music.
This projection towards the future is based on the foundation of memory, the one we owe to Beethoven, whose 250th anniversary of birth could not be celebrated as we had planned in 2020. We would therefore like to postpone a few concerts in order to show our loyalty to this monumental composer.

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.
