Saint Paul de Vence Chamber Music Festival 2013

St Paul de Vence, late July - early August

There exists perhaps no more perfect setting for a festival of chamber music than the beautifully preserved medieval town of Saint Paul de Vence. Perched on a hilltop and spiralling up towards its highest point, the town has been a haven for artists, musicians and thespians for centuries. Now in its third year, this festival offers the perfect soundtrack for balmy summer nights in the quaintest and most refined of settings.

Set at the foot of the town’s ramparts, the stage welcomes the cream of chamber music talent for six nights of unforgettable concerts with a backdrop of the majestic Mediterranean Sea. The festival plays host to a broad selection of performers from established musicians to some tremendous young talents who bring a fresh face to the classical scene. Somewhere in between the two, the Modigliani Quartet, the much lauded Parisian four-piece, performs to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.

It is no coincidence that the sweet strains of chamber music fit so perfectly with the medieval setting of Saint Paul de Vence. The music itself was born out of the middle ages as privileged classes sought out a way that they could enjoy the sophisticated and ambient qualities of classical music within the comfort of their own palace chambers. Just as gramophones brought music into the home in the 20th century, chamber music did the same job, several hundred years before. In the case of chamber music, the traditional set-up was a string trio or quartet who could perform all the parts of a full orchestra but could be situated in the corner of a room.

Due to its intimate qualities, chamber music is sometimes referred to as ‘the music of friends’ and the festival in Saint Paul is very much in that spirit. Tickets for the concerts are between €12 and €30 and there is a free presentation and string quartet performance from the Modigliani Quartet on Sunday the 28th July which is open to the public.
