The programme for the 2018 International Musique Cordiale Festival includes a mixture of high-quality chamber music, recitals by talented members of the Academy, symphonic repertoire plus concertos, song cycles and an evening of operatic arias conducted by James Lowe + an exciting weekend when Classic meets Jazz. You can also encounter some folk and nostalgic rock music playing and singing. To conclude the festivities in true Musique Cordiale style, Graham Ross will conduct Haydn’s Oratorio ‘The Seasons’ (in German) and an a capella concert, another ‘German Feast’ of sublime choral masterpieces by Bach & Schutz around 20 varied concerts in the Pays de Fayence and elsewhere in Provence.
