65th Menton Festival de Musique

On August 1st Kremerata Baltica and Gidon Kremer is giving a concert at 65th Menton Festival de Musique. The program includes works by A. Vivaldi, A. Piazzolla, and P. Glass with three distinctive musical interpretations of seasons of the year.

Menton Music Festival is the oldest classical music festival in France, which is gathering renowned orchestras and musicians since 1950. Just a year before the first festival, the idea was born in the mind of André Böröcz. While visiting Menton he was inspired by the harmony feeling while looking at Saint Michel square with its beautiful Baroque Church, the horizon at the Mediterranean sea and hearing the second partita for violin by Bach being played on a radio. This moment of a perfect arrangement had to be relived.
