Feeling good with Dr Feelgood

Another fantastic Sonograf production, this time at the Chateau de Saumane

Le Sonograf programmation dates concerts

We are so lucky to have these guys - real Provence

Never got the shot!

Last night was our annual visit to the International Piano Festival at La Roque d'Antheron.  The concert started at 9 and we'd decided to have supper in the village at a local restaurant in the main street.

To set the scene, Roque d'Antheron isn't too formal but it is a very serious musical event with the best players in the world performing.  Imagine our hilarity when an hour before the performance a local tractor comes trundling along the street towing a very large trailer with grand piano on it obviously destined for the concert venue.  Things are different in real Provence.

As you can see this is not a small affair.  We think as many as 5000 attend each night

This was this years programme

Romance in Cereste

Interesting to speculate what romantic story lies behind this street sign for 'love nest' street in Cereste.
