Automne Musical en Vallespir

19th September - 8th November

| 15€

Automne Musical en Vallespir

Firmly established on the P-O musical calendar, now into its 11th successive edition, the renowned Automne musical en Vallespir (Amuvall) festival continues to promote and celebrate the best in regional, national and international music.

Organised by Musiques et Voix en Pays Catalans, the festival is a collection of 10 superb concerts by professional musicians across the 10 communes that make up the Communauté de Commune du Vallespir.

Artistic director, Christian Papis, shares his particular passion for classical singing and opera but also brings together a range of other genres and styles.

During the festival, why not tie in the concert with a visit to the Musée d’art moderne or the Musée de MúSIC in Céret?

And perhaps a little apéro or a meal in one of the many great bars and restaurants across the Vallespir.


Programme 2020

Artist info available from the Amuvall website (see link below)


Friday 25th September – 5pm at VIVÈS Salle Communale
Humorous cappella quartet  “Les Pieces Jointes” present a program entitled “The Tower of Angels Quartet”. From Beethoven to ABBA, they challenge the traditions of theatre and song, with unexpected interpretations of thier material, from funky to classical, from humorous to full-on parody.

Sunday 27th September – 5pm at L’ALBERE Eglise St Jean
The Trio Desmée – a voice, a cello, a piano. Delphine and Shani Mégret joined forces with Émilie Carcy to form the Trio Desmée in 2019.   Tonight they offer us their own arrangements of various pieces from romantic to contemporary, including Schubert, Franck, Debussy, Berlioz and André Previn.

Saturday 3rd October – 5pm at TAILLET Eglise St Valentin
Trio flûte, alto et harpe  – This combination of instruments, probably first used by Claude Debussy in his famous sonata in 1915, inspired many composers throughout the 20th century up to current composers. This trio therefore invites us to discover this repertoire through a daring and innovative program which highlights little-known pieces illustrating the evolution of instrumental writing until today. Combining traditional sounds and contemporary modes of play, these musicians take us on a journey through time and space with influences of world music from Japan to South America through the blues. A concert to discover !!
