Czech Touches of Music International Music Festival

Czech Touches of Music International Music Festival

The Czech Touches of Music IMF is a national festival of classical music and is among ten greatest festivals of classical music in the Czech Republic. Its aim is to offer the top repertory works in orchestral or chamber music, or popular music in the crossover genre. The programme concept has the following priorities: 1) Development of the Czech interpretational tradition and Czech composing school – its introductions cover approximately one-half of the festival programme. 2) The Music of the Central European Region project for V4 countries which is in line with the long-term focus of the foreign policy and cultural links of the Czech Republic. The permanent dramaturgy concept also includes the following: 3) Identification of compositions that are not ordinarily performed and the introduction of Czech composers of the 2nd half of the 20th century and of contemporary music as the followers of the founding personalities of modern Czech music, such as Leoš Janáček, Bohuslav Martinů, Josef Suk and Vítězslav Novák. 4) Regularly providing opportunities for the presentation of the younger generation of musical interpreters (under 35 years of age) – laureates, along with already renowned artists and orchestras, and of compositions by contemporary composers placed within the historical context, including world premieres. 5) Systematically combining culture with tourism, bringing attention to the history and architecture of the premises where the festival is held, as an inseparable part of the presentation of Czech or Prague culture. 6) Introduction of pilot works of world music and the hosting (import) of foreign artists, which often includes preparing Czech music that they can spread all around the world as part of their repertory. II. Other features and aspects: 1) The festival regularly presents concerts as part of other special series – Music of Prague Castle, Gems of Russian Music, Concert for Children and Parents, and multi-genre projects involving literature, film, the creative arts and architecture. It is the only Czech festival to have its own eponymous festival chamber orchestra, with the violist Pavel Fischer as its artistic leader. 2) The ‘Czech Touches of Music’ International Music Festival is a member of the AHF – Association of Music Festivals of the Czech Republic, and a member of the EFA – European Festivals Association. 3) Its international dimensions and importance for Czech musical life, its diversity and quality, outrivals most municipal and regional musical institutions and even some national institutions established by the state. In live music art, it is the bearer of the musical traditions of Czech cultural heritage and the high art of composers and interpreters.

Le prestigieux pianiste Cédric Pescia est le parrain de la 20ème édition du festival. Professeur à la Haute École de Musique de Genève il a offert une masterclass auprès de quatorze pianistes au Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Toulouse les 14 et 15 janvier 2020. Il sera entouré d’artistes déjà connus du festival et des scènes internationales, les pianistes Philippe Cassard, Bertrand Giraud, Éric Lesage, la violoncelliste Anne Gastinel, les violonistes David Grimal, Markus Daünert et Céline Lesage, l’orchestre Occitania, l’ensemble Café De Maurizi. Les jeunes talents de la Région Occitanie auront la part belle puisque la classe de musique de chambre du conservatoire à Rayonnement de Toulouse et les étudiants en musicologie de l’Université Jean Jaurès Toulouse 2 seront présents pour une scène ouverte à La Maison des Vins et Du Tourisme de Fronton. Pour découvrir de plus près ce beau terroir frontonnais, quatre soirées Au Cœur Des Vignes seront organisées avec l’ensemble Café De Maurizi. Les vignerons vous feront visiter leur chai avant les concerts. Le concert de clôture du festival sera un Noël en valses et danses transylvaniennes avec le Duo Lesage, qui fêtera leurs vingt années d’organisation du festival. Chaque soirée est ponctuée de dégustations offertes par les vignerons. Si selon Aristote, l’art et le vin sont les joies supérieures de l’homme libre, dégustons sans modération cette alchimie du bonheur que nous offre Musique en Vignes.
