The 2022 Festival Les Nuits Pianistiques of Aix-en-Provence program
The festival runs from Tuesday 26 July to Saturday 12 August.
Recitals, chamber music concerts and orchestral evenings alternate and cover repertoires ranging from the baroque to contemporary creation.
The 2022 programme, which occupies three weeks of the summer and two magnificent music venues in Aix, the Auditorium Campra and the Church of St John of Malta, is based on two principles: diversity of instrumental combinations, and a link between classicism and modernity.
The piano, as a soloist or chamber musician, is the main instrument of the Festival, but it also makes room for ensembles that are striking in their originality, from Poulenc’s wind sextet to Messiaen’s composite quartet.
Works from the great repertoire, from the classics Mozart and Beethoven, coexist with more rarely heard pieces, while thematic concerts, in particular the one paying tribute to the great Argentinean composer-performer Carlos Roque Alsina, put into perspective essential dimensions of classical music for the audiences of our time.
