classical and contemporary music


The RENCONTRES MUSICALES INTERNATIONALES DES GRAVES festival is a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the exhilarating world of classical and contemporary music, in a setting of the prestigious chateaux of the Graves and Sauternes vineyards of Bordeaux, FRANCE.

Every year for more than 20 years, the festival brings together a delightful cru of talented musicians from different countries :  France, USA, Israel, Spain, Eastern Europe….

The festival takes place under the aegis of the “Summer Scenes in Gironde“, which draws together officially recognized cultural events in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.

Artistic direction : Max Zorin and Vincent Balse


The 2024 program will be unveiled soon!

The past 23rd edition


17 – 28 July 2023


Paris, New York, New Orleans, Budapest, Seville, Vienna, Warsaw, Salzburg, Florence… 9 cities, 9 concerts! 

Take a musical tour through the enchanted towns! .

Like the wine rich of blends, the timeless charm of our programming is created by our exceptional artists – both the faithful for several editions, both new, but always driven by the main love of their life – music – that they generously share with you.

Once again this year, the Musique en Graves festival will have the honour of welcoming renowned artists who have delighted the public in previous editions. Among them, we will gladly applaud the gospel and blues singer Bridget Bazile, who inflamed the audience last year with her powerful and moving voice.

We will also have the pleasure of welcoming as a special guest the virtuoso pianist Georgijs Osokins, the revelation of the 17th Chopin International Piano Competition, which will offer us a memorable piano recital.

And to top it all off, our guests of honour – Brigitte Fossey – the legendary – and Patrice Fontanarosa, one of the greatest violinists of our time, will take us to Paris, city of lights.

Welcome to this musical journey through the enchanted cities with our exceptional artists !

And which setting would be better suited to this choice of content than the legendary land of the Graves vineyard and its wonderful castles?

As usual, the Domaine de Chevalier, the Chateaux Smith Haut Lafitte, Latour-Martillac, Carbonnieux, Bouscaut, the Château de Rochemorin and the Château de France, as well as the House of Wines of the Graves in Podensac and the Mably Court in Bordeaux will warmly welcome music lovers.

Breathe in the summer, enjoy a good wine on its soil and let your mind wander in music !
