C. Bechstein at the Nohant Festival in France

The piano festival at the estate of George Sand, partner of Frédéric Chopin, currently welcomes the most exciting pianists from around the world, all of whom thrill their audience on a C. Bechstein concert grand.

On the historic grounds in Nohant-Vic, piano recitals but also chamber music concerts will take place this summer, which are particularly moving in the very special atmosphere of the estate.

This year's line-up includes greats such as Rafal Blechacz, Dmitry Shishkin and Philippe Cassard, but also the younger generation is represented with pianists such as Victor Soos or Adam Laloum. Last but not least, the winners of some of the greatest international piano competitions of recent years will perform, first and foremost Jonathan Fournel (Concours Reine Elisabeth Brussels 2021), Bruce Liu (Chopin Competition Warsaw 2021) and Ayame Ishise (Prix Cortot 2022).

Piano legend Rafal Blechacz performed last Saturday and expressed to the audience his excitement about the C. Bechstein D282 concert grand: "it's fantastic!"
