« French Romantic Music»

If the concept of « romantism» in music is naturally associated with Germany, it is no less the case that France made a significant contribution throughout the 19th Century. Opera, of course, more than chamber music, although ...

The theme of this the 49th festival intends to explore this chapter in the history of French music which has been rather forgotten, a little denigrated, overshadowed as it is by such German maestros as Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms and others.

For the 2022 event, the composer Alexandre Gasparov, a highly skilled musician and several times a prize-winner at the Composition Awards in his own country, will take up residence at the Les Arcs Academy Music Festival. 2022 will also mark the return of the festival after a two-year absence due to the pandemic. It is thus the opportunity for about 150 students to perfect their art accompanied by thirty teachers. It will be the audience’s privilege to hear these young musicians rehearsing their arpeggios.


Friday 15 July: Opening concert with Alexandre Gasparov’s  « Scène d’un ballet imaginaire » (scene from an imaginary ballet), sonata for violin and ‘cello.

Tuesday 19 July: « Pirojki » the world premiere  of a piece of music by Gasparov, created exclusively for the les Arcs Festival. 

Thursday 28 July: Outdoor concert « The Goldberg Variations» by the string trio led by Eric Crambes, The festival’s artistic director.

Friday 29 July: The Festival closing day, open house to follow the masterclasses and the closing concert with the Academy orchestra.
