    European Renaissance Music Festival

    25, 26, 27 september
    Xth edition

    Since 2005, Clos Lucé has been celebrating Leonardo da Vinci, a talented musician and composer, by inviting the most prestigious musical ensembles to its European Festival of Renaissance Music.
    For its Xth edition, the Château du Clos Lucé will give carte blanche to its guest of honour Jordi Savall and showcase talented musicians and composers. This special edition also stays true to the tradition of master to pupil that was so dear to Leonardo da Vinci.
    With his choice of programme, Jordi Savall treats us to the warm and colourful feel of music from around the Mediterranean and beyond
    The ambition of the European Festival of Renaissance Music is to bring to the public’s attention the many different aspects of music both ancient and modern in an eclectic programme combining young talent with nationally and internationally renowned artists.


    Jordi Savall – Friday 25 September, 8.30pm
    To open this 10th-anniversary festival, Jordi Savall, accompanied by a dozen musicians of Le Concert des Nations, will be performing a concert that gives us a flavour of European music in the 17th and 18th centuries: Les Goûts Réunis (1600-1800).
