The Audi Summer Concerts

A festival that brings people together and surprises them with lively concerts and world-class artists – these are the Audi Summer Concerts. In 2019 and 2020, they carry the creative handwriting of Lisa Batiashvili. For the very first time, the exceptional violinist designed as artistic director the musical program of the festival. With “Fantastique!”, she put the French musical culture at the heart of the 2019 festival and took visitors of the Audi summer concerts on a musical journey into fantastic worlds. “Giving audiences the experience of music as a source of inspiration and imagination”: In these words Lisa Batiashvili describes her artistic approach in 2019. The festival follows its guiding principle of being accessible, getting close to people, and delighting audiences with high-caliber artists.
