Villa's concerts


In keeping with our philosophy and our modus operandi, we host concerts that are open to Villa members to ensure fair promotion of the pieces we choose to support, notably via our Collections.




The concert programmes are selected by the professional performers themselves:

  • primarily from the pieces in the Collection promoted during the concert,
  • then from among the pieces in the Villa's catalogue,
  • and finally more generally from the repertoire of written compositions.

In the event of circumstances beyond the Villa's control, the joint decision of the Executive Director and the Artistic Director will be final:

  • the concert may be deferred or cancelled by the Villa,
  • the concert programme may be amended.

The concerts are audio recorded live to illustrate the composer's catalogue of works.
