A 54th season full of discoveries!
The founders of the Festival Musique & Neige Les Diablerets set themselves the ambitious challenge of creating a quality chamber music festival in the mountains at an affordable price in 1970. Did you know that our festival only functions with volunteers, including the artistic director? This miracle has been going on for 54 seasons now. We are proud to be able to perpetuate the original philosophy and spirit of this event by offering you a new season that promises to be exciting.
Gilles Champoud, artistic director, has concocted a sparkling program of remarkable performers from the classical music scene. To some of them who have already enchanted you in the Temple of Vers-l'Église will be added beautiful discoveries. Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert or Brahms are of course part of the program, but also Korngold, Kurtag or Lutoslawski. This high level programming has convinced RTS Espace 2 to record three of the eight concerts we are offering.
Our attractive pricing policy and the high quality of the concerts have a cost. The income from the ticket office and from the advertisers in our program do not cover the fees of the artists involved. The Friends of the Festival, through their contributions and donations, allow us to balance our accounts. We would like to express our gratitude to them and to the entire team of volunteers. You are not yet a Friend and would like to contribute to making music resound in Les Ormonts? Become a Friend!
We invite you to share the experience of a festival where conviviality rhymes with quality. Come and join us for wonderful moments in an enchanting setting and share a glass of mulled wine with us after the concerts!
