The Nohant Festival Chopin takes place on the estate Maison de George Sand
The Nohant Festival takes place at the Maison de George Sand in Nohant-Vic. The property was the home of George Sand (1804-1876) and was acquired by the French state in 1952. Sand had written many of her books on her estate, as well as housing the most important artists and writers of her time. Chopin, Balzac, Turgenev and Delacroix took the latch in the hand.
From June 9th to July 24th, Nohant was once more dedicated to piano music: The Nohant Festival Chopin 2018 took place under the artistic direction of Professor Yves Henry.
Much praise from the pianists for the C. Bechstein concert grand piano
After the opening concert with Shlomo Mintz (violin) and Itamar Golan (piano), pianists such as Eliane Reyes (with cellist Ivan Karzina), Andrei Korobeinikov, Nathanael Gouin, Alexandre Kantorov, Fanny Azzuro, Seong-Jin Cho, Michel Dalberto, Dimitri Malignan and the super virtuoso Marc-André Hamelin wonderful concerts at the festival. After their appearances they praised the wonderful atmosphere in Nohant and especially the "brilliant", "wonderful" and "magnificent" C. Bechstein grand piano in the artists' book of the festival. A big compliment for our brand, which was also appreciated by our leading concert technician Torben Garlin. He serviced the D 282 for most of the concerts and was personally on site to prepare the grand piano for each recital at its best.
