Over the past 29 years, La Roque d'Anthéron International Piano Festival has established itself as an exceptional event on the world's musical landscape

Although the Festival sites have changed over the years, the Parc du Château de Florans in La Roque d'Anthéron (a small town 50 kilometres north of Aix-en-Provence) remains the main site for these remarkable encounters. This is where for all types of music come together: from classical to contemporary, jazz to electronic, featuring young talents as well as renowned greats.

Over 50 pianists will perform during the Festival, among them artists from Poland, such as Julia Kociuban and Marcin Koziak playing the music of Frédéric Chopin.Sinfonia Varsovia, which over the years has become a regular participant of the event, will be conducted by Jacek Kaspszyk and George Tchitchinadze.

A piano recital by Marcin Koziak and a concert by Sinfonia Varsovia will be broadcast on the French television channel "arte".
