The 7th edition of the festival will take place in August, (2nd, 3rd, and 4th) with Quatuor Ebène and their guests, beginning with the first event on the 2nd at the La Roche Posay racecourse. The racecourse will welcome our top of the bill artist, Stacey Kent, a superb jazz singer. She will be accompanied by composer and saxophonist, Jim Tomlinson, by Quatuor Ebène and Richard Héry. We look forward to a truly exceptional musical experience.
On the 3rd and 4th of August, the concerts will be held in the church of Saint Pierre de Maillé. We shall hear the pianists, Akiko Yamamato and Shani Diluka; singer, Marion Tassou and Stéphane Logerot, (double bass), interpreting Brahms, Fauré, Schubert and Haydn. We shall conclude the festival, as always, with an outdoor jazz concert and a picnic on the church lawn. We shall hear Pierre Colombet, accompanied by Stéphane Logerot and Richard Héry. On the programme for this swinging concert will be works by Monk, Mingus, Miles, Cole Porter, Hancock, Garner and Petrucciani.
