Nicolas Dufetel
Conference "La Moutte"
Upcoming program
La Moutte embodies the history and spirit of Romanticism, of which German composer Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) is a leading figure. His music speaks of passion, nature, spirituality, the relationship with the world and the environment, and the infinite expansion of feelings...
Between literature and music, the lecture, illustrated with sound, will help you penetrate the secrets of Brahms' romanticism and his hidden links with Saint-Tropez...

All evenings from July 30 onwards will be presented by Nicolas Dufetel, with the exception of August 1.


PMR : Reservations by telephone required
