The Festival originated in 1986 to showcase the Robert Dallam organ of Lanvellec (1653). Miraculously preserved in its original state, it is a unique testimony to Robert Dallam’s art of organ building.
This baroque gem – described by Gustav Leonhardt as “lively, precise, quivering” is the starting point of the Festival , a major event in Baroque Music, presenting internationally renowned musicians.
Every Autumn in Brittany, in the towns and villages of the Trégor area, period instruments played by great artists can be heard in beautiful surroundings. Each concert is given in a church, chapel, cathedral or theatre with perfect acoustics.
A broker of history, the Lanvellec and Trégor Festival lets you discover ancient music and its greatest composers. Over three weekends it invites the public to concerts – generally first productions – , lectures, and meetings with artists to discuss constantly renewed themes. Culture, history and music are closely knit to meet everyone’s tastes.
The Festival is a member of the European Early Music Network (EEMN). This is in recognition to the high level of its artistic programming by the musical world. Based locally the Festival aims at international excellence.
