Festival Baroque de Pontoise - 36th edition, "Mensonges"
From 1st October 2021
In 2021-2022, the Festival Baroque de Pontoise is celebrating the 500th anniversary of Josquin Desprez, of which a few dozen pieces signed by his hand are not. The 350th birthday of Albinoni, known worldwide for an adagio he did not write. The 100th anniversary of Saint-Saëns, a fanatic of Rameau who proves wrong those who think that the baroque revival dates from the 1960s.
The festival will be devoted to errors or hoaxes by musicologists, to transcriptions, re-orchestrations, but also to what is close to our hearts: the great lie of the impermeability of genres, styles and disciplines. You will find all the cultural and temporal, artistic and societal intersections that become the very identity of the festival.
