les Arcs Music Academy Festival

Prochaine édition :
Du 15 au 29 juillet 2022 🎵

The Music Festival will be held in a reduced and different form, with Camille Pépin as the guest composer in residence. During the 47th festival, the public will be able to attend several concerts a day, either in one of the usual venues or in the open air.

Certain concerts will also be available on the new on-line platform. Preventative measures and the authorities’ instructions will be observed at all events.

This year, a collective of musicians will come together to work on musical works around a hundred musical scores and thirty concerts in suitable locations. Every day, the following day’s programme will be announced by word of mouth for a free andspontaneous event, refocused on the heart of the chamber music repertoire.

Since it was set up, the Festival’s task has always been to enable the young generation to get their careers off to a good start.

By maintaining the 47th festival, the artistic director, Eric Crambes, intends to renew his commitment to and profound support for young musicians affected on the front line by the health crisis.

Camille Pépin, guest composer in residence in les Arcs

Born in 1990, Camille Pepin is one of the most promising composers of her generation. She was composer of the year at the 2020 Victoires de la Musique Classique for The Sound of Trees.
Her works are performed by numerous orchestras, ensembles and performers (the Ile de France National Orchestra, the Lyon National Orchestra, the Colonne Orchestra, the Polygones Ensemble, Raphaëlle Moreau, Célia Oneto Bensaïd, Yan Levionnois...) and in the most prestigious concert halls (the Philharmonie in Paris, the Radio France Auditorium, The Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg)...Her first chamber music record was issued on the NoMadMusic label.

At the Festival she will be presenting her works to the public and will speak at a conference on the music of today.
