The only international piano festival in the Alsace area !
|2017 introductory Note
Enrolling in the way of the weekends du piano started in 2010, the Würth Museum had celebrated in 2016 the first edition of Piano au Musée Würth which is now recognized by the scale of its wonderful and varied programming as the only international piano Festival in Alsace, offering an incomparable radiance to this beautiful area and the city of Erstein, closed both from Strasbourg and Germany ! The mission of this exceptional event is to celebrate the King piano in all forms, on two long weekends with recitals by renowned international soloists, chamber music concerts and Masterclasses. Some young talents at the starting of a bright future will be also presented. The desire of transmission is an essential goal and Masterclasses will give the opportunity to young pianists still in training to develop and perform with audience. The eclectic repertoire is honored with the great masterpieces of the piano repertoire including Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, Prokofiev, Szymanowski, Berg, Granados, Albéniz and lesser-known works rarely given in concert. French music and the great romantic repertoire will also hold a prominent place. The Hall and the beautiful Steinway D of the Würth Museum increase a new public, large and renewed. I warmly acknowledge Marie-France Bertrand, Director of the Museum to trust me as the new Artistic Director, our partners, and all guests’ artists participating of the prestige and success of Piano au Musée Würth.
