32nd Musique en Périgord Festival

audrix

Surprises and discoveries

Created in 1989 in the church of Audrix, a Périgord village located between the Vézère and Dordogne rivers, the Musique en Périgord festival, which started as a purely classical music festival, has evolved all the while remaining faithful to its origins. Each year, this magical environment hosts musical performances in harmony with the beauty of its age-old stones.

This year should have been the 32nd edition marking the beginning of a new era!

Unfortunately, it had to cancel because of the Virus.

But life is now returning to normal. And therefore, the 32nd edition WILL BE. A shorter outdoors edition, we still hope it will be a festive and exciting experience; an event that will make you travel in time and space, from South America to Central Europe, from baroque to mid-20th century music.

We hope you’ll all be there.

Looking forward to meeting you soon

Parlez-moi d’amour !

Works by Haendel, Bach, Mozart, Offenbach, Bartok and Chostakovitch.
How did Mozart speak about love? 
His correspondence is filled with love letters to Constance, his wife, sprinkled with a sometimes rugged humor but also with tenderness. And so is his music. 

Whether furious, tender, impatient, shy or passionate, love reigns on all opera scenes but also on more intimate concerts of songs and lieds. Each composer gives it its own colour and harmony.
No sky is too big for it. From Cupid’s feathers to his most sharp-pointed arrows, it knows no limits or taboos. From time immemorial, music has been its faithful ally. Traveling through centuries all along this concert, it appears in turn dreamy, classical, cheerful, romantic and pathetic or modern and mocking!
