31st Musique en Périgord Festival

audrix

The festival "Musique en Périgord" was first presented in 1989 in the roman church at Audrix, a small village located between the Vézère and Dordogne rivers. It will celebrate its thirty first anniversary.
The Festival is intended to introduce talented young musicians as well as recognized artists, to bring classical music to the rural environment, and to provide great music in small settings. It strives to attract new audiences by offering programs of diverse musical genres and tastes, and hopes to introduce children to classical as well as to other kinds of music.
Exposing children to the joy and appreciation of good music is an important goal. Music enriches the lives of the young and also creates the audiences of tomorrow.
The content and format of the program is created for an intimate environment intended to bring together the musicians ad the audiences, young and old. A welcoming, family atmosphere characterizes our Festival.

In 2019, "Musique en Périgord" festival will be presented from July28 to August 12.

The various concerts will be performed in the Roman churches of Audrix, Les Eyzies, Saint-Chamassy, on the banks of Vézère River in Le Bugue, in the auditorium of Saint-Cyprien, and in the park of Campagne’s Castle. Le Gouffre de Proumeyssac will also participate in "Musique en Périgord".

BELTUNER
AU PARADIS DU PÊCHEUR (Fisherman’s paradise)
Created in 2001, Beltuner is a quartet which is essentially a tribute to accordion. Beltuner is mainly centred on Johann Riche, a musician trained by his grand-father to accordion village dances in the Vosges Mountains. The group’s high energy music has its own sound and their concerts mix accordion sounds, Gipsy swing, tango and Yiddish or Balkan music.
Early on, the group has evolved towards their own sound and style, mixing genres, bringing in many different influences (jazz, world music and classical music, but also pop music, rock, funk or electro…), replacing from one concert and one album to the other traditional pieces by their own compos or unexpected covers.
