Igor Markevitch, composer and conductor

25.08-28.10.2012

For the centenary of the birth of Igor Markevitch (1912-1983).

The “Septembre Musical” Festival and Chillon Castle have worked together to increase public awareness of this great composer and orchestra conductor who lived part of his life on the Vaud Riviera.

Through manuscripts, music scores, programmes, portraits and audiovisual archive material, the exhibition will invite you to discover a character of multiple facets, both a player in and a witness to the great artistic and musical movements from the Twenties to the Seventies of the 20th century.

Free of charge explanatory tour of the exhibition (entry to the castle as per set tariffs): Sundays at 15:15. Only in French.
