Cultural Academy Classical Music Festival of Les Arcs Les Arcs


On Friday 15 July 2022
Les Arcs (73700)

Theme: “French Romantic Music”.
If the notion of “romanticism” in music is naturally attached to Germany, the fact remains that France played a significant role throughout the 19th century.
The theme of this 49th edition explores this part of history within French music that is sometimes forgotten, maybe even a little denigrated, as it finds its way through German Masters such as Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn and other Brahms.
For this 2022 edition, the composer Alexandre Gasparov, an emeritus musician and several times winner of the Composition Competition in his country, will take up residence at the "Académie Festival de Musique des Arcs".
The year 2022 will also mark the great return of the Academy after two years of interruption due to the pandemic. It is therefore an opportunity for around 150 trainees to refine their art accompanied by around thirty teachers. For the spectators it is also the privilege of hearing the arpeggios of the young musicians in rehearsal.

The 2022 program:
- Friday July 15: Opening concert with the work of Alexandre Gasparov “Scene from an imaginary ballet”, sonata for violin and cello.
- Tuesday July 19: Musical piece, “Pirojki” world premiere by Alexandre Gasparov, created exclusively for the Festival des Arcs.
- Thursday 28 July: Outdoor concert “Les Variations Goldberg” by the string trio led by Eric Crambes, Artistic Director of the festival.
- Friday July 29: closing day of the Festival: open doors to follow the masterclasses and closing concert with the orchestra of the Academy.
