31 August - 12 September 2013 Festi'Classique en Pays de Cognac was created from two good music and fine cognac. Festi'Classique en pays de Cognac is a festival wich presents a programme dedicated to celebrated artists and eventually to young winners of international competitions. Our driving ambition is to discover the most talented classical musicians (violin, piano, guitar, harp….) and complement them with the most prestigious cognac of the region.
Every concert is followed by a tasting of cocktails. Aromatic notes with the chromatics notes, the Festival aims to be the culmination of music and cognac in excellence, prestige and beauty.
