Festival Ravel – from 27 August to 17 September 2017

The Palazzetto Bru Zane and the Académie Internationale de Musique Maurice Ravel, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year, continue for the third season their partnership focusing on tuition of the French Romantic repertory. Pronunciation and a feeling for theatre à la française for singers, and the notion of a ‘stylistic school’ for the instrumentalists, form the programme for the individual classes, masterclasses and lectures offered (in public) to the young musicians participating in the 2017 edition. Discover all the Ravel Festival events.
