Welcome to the Aujols Music Festival

Celebrating its twelfth anniversary this year, Les Heures Musicales d'Aujols was founded by the British conductor Martin Yates, in collaboration with Aujols Culture et Loisirs, and it has rapidly become one of the most enjoyable chamber music festivals of its type.

Its reputation for presenting international artists of the highest calibre, in the stunning setting of the Eglise St. Jean-Baptiste, has ensured its success.

This year we are delighted to welcome the virtuoso Russian violinist Sergey Levitin accompanied by the accomplished pianist Min-Jung Kym, the brilliant Japanese pianist Hiroaki Takenouchi, and to welcome back the renowned Russian soprano Ilona Domnich, British violinist Charles Mutter and Italian double bassist Giuseppe Ciraso Calí. In addition to the three concerts there will be a young musicians’ workshop, tutored by the professionals, and culminating in a concert given by both the amateur and professional musicians together.
