Held in the courtyard by night, a beautiful setting made more so by the starlit scheduling, guests at this summer’s line-up will enjoy a thoroughly classical repertoire from some of the world’s most talented musicians and conductors.

It all starts on Sunday 16th July with pianist Daniel Trifonov performing pieces by Rachmaninoff and Brahms under the conductorship of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra’s own Kazuki Yamada. This scheduling has already sold out. 

Then on Thursday 20th July, Fabien Gabel conducts Gil Shaham on violin as he takes on works by Mahler, Ravel, Strauss and Korngold.
