Yesterday & Today

The Chartreuse du Liget in Music

the new musical meeting place in South Touraine


By deliberately combining the old and the new, the festival continues its adventure. This year, works by Ustvolskaya, Auerbach, El Turk, Pärt and Pépin rub shoulders with those by Bach, Beethoven, Smetana, Bartok and Schubert.
The flamboyant work of Marie Jaëll, recently unearthed, lies somewhere between these 2 poles, her genre having eliminated her from the music stands until now.

Against the backdrop of a polarising era, the works and artists programmed at the Hier & Aujourd'hui festival convert the arbitrary antagonism of the new and the old into an ardent association.

Pour cette quatrième édition, Il y a des fidélités parce qu'elles sont promesses d'épiphanies; nous retrouverons le 18 juillet la pianiste Célia Oneto Bensaid invitée en 2022; en solo, et en duo avec  la violoncelliste Olivia Gay. Le 19 juillet ; la violoniste Lana Trotovsek - invitée en 2021 et 2022- cette année avec le trio Greenwich.

Le Quatuor Mona clôturera le festival le 20 juillet.

 The Chartreuse du Liget is a former Carthusian monastery in the heart of South Touraine. Founded at the end of the 12th century by Henri II Plantagenet, King of England and Count of Anjou, it is the only Carthusian monastery present in Touraine. As is the Carthusian rule, La Chartreuse consists of a high house in Liget and a low house in Corroirie. The whole of Liget also has an isolated chapel in a clearing in the forest of Loches, where the first monks who founded the hermitage settled.
