Rencontres de violoncelle de Bélaye

Art director: Roland Pidoux

XXXIth meeting

Last year we celebrate 30 years of Violoncello concerts in Belaye.

Thirty wonderful years of welcoming the finest French and International musicians to this little medieval village perched above the Lot valley. Their presence has made the Belaye concerts an unmissable event for the French School of Violoncello, and an international showcase for chamber music. The next 10 years hold much promise. The Association’ Les Monuments Musicaux en Quercy’ responsible for so many wonderful concerts – most notably at ‘La Grange de Monplan’ – are handing us the reins.

Five concerts, a public conference and children workshops are just some of the exciting upcoming activities curated by Roland Pidoux.

We look forwards to welcomming you in Belaye. 

The renown of Rencontres de Violoncelle de Bélaye owes a huge debt to the artistic force of Roland Pidoux, to the magic of his programming and the respect and admiration he engenders among both the musicians and the public. The team of volunteers who work so tirelessly from year to year, our partners, both public and private, who sponsor us, all play an essential part. However without the support of our members, Rencontres would not exist – they really are our backbone. We do have need of this loyal commitment to ensure our continuity. Please confirm your support or rejoin by sending the Membership Form (Bulletin d’Adhésion).  Like all members you will benefit from priority reservations for concerts, free entry to the seminars (carte privilege) and you will be directly associated with the life of Rencontres.
