Every year, the Festival puts on a concert for the people of Aix on Easter Sunday.
The world-renowned flautist Juliette Hurel is one of the top figures in her field. For a programme of nothing but Bach, (Trio sonatas, Orchestral suites, Cantatas), she will be joined by the ensemble Les Surprises, a sparkling group of musicians put together in 2010 by Juliette Guignard and Louis-Noël Bestion de Camboulas, with the aim of highlighting “surprising” baroque pieces that have been forgotten about.
“Tact, unstudied elegance, an expression as intense as it is lacking in emphasis, radiant, rhythmic vitality. We look forward impatiently to the next concert by les Surprises” (Concertclassic).
