Les Amateurs Virtuoses in Paris

From June 1, 2021 to June 6, 2021

After several months of great opacity on the future, and numerous cancellations in 2020 due to the covid crisis, les Amateurs virtuoses are back on stage in Paris from June 1st to 6th 2021, under the patronage of French writer and Academician Erik Orsenna.

At the Théâtre du Châtelet from June 1st to 4th:
Every morning (except for June 1st), masterclasses will give some of the best masters the opportunity to share their understanding and experience of music with a few outstanding amateur pianists who will perform one work for them. We are proud to welcome Lise de la Salle, the Berlinskaya - Ancelle piano duet and Frank Braley.

Every day at 12:30 and 18:30, two thematic concerts will offer the chance to discover four pianists from the Amateurs Virtuoses community.

Last and not least, on Sunday, June 6th at 16:30, for the first time at the Philharmonie 2 - Cité de la musique, our final concert for 2 pianos will gather ten pianists in a final bouquet presented by our friend Bertrand Périer!
