October-November, April-May. An intimate performance space with a fine piano (35 seats) in the Haight in San Francisco.
Festival de Musique d’Entrecasteaux, www.festivaldentrecasteaux.fr. Late August. Sometimes world class, always fine performances of a rich and sometimes surprising chamber repertoire.
Festival Messiaen au pays de la Meije, www.festival-messiaen.com. Late July. Based on Messiaen this festival looks generally forward with generally difficult music in always fine performances.
Festival International de Piano de la Roque d'Anthéron, www.festival-piano.com. July. A huge festival with generally European pianists of varied talent and technique. The repertoire is exhaustive though it avoids advanced late twentieth century and contemporary works.
