The Deià International Music Festival has become an outstanding event in the island’s cultural offering that delights classical music lovers. This event, which has been held since 1978 in one of the island’s most charming villages and other magical enclaves, is now in its 45th year. “The variety of the repertoire, the internationality of its performers, and its academic, pedagogical and cultural production approaches, with all the different styles covered, guarantee the interest and quality of the Festival 2023,” Alfredo Oyagüez, artistic director, assures us.
Up until the 27th of September, a total of 45 concerts have been programmed in several emblematic venues across Mallorca: Deià’s Amphitheatre and Viewpoint, the Bartomeu March Foundation at the Palau March (Palma), Son Marroig (Deià), the Robert Graves Foundation (Deià), the Hotel Belmond La Residencia (Deià), Sa Bassa Rotja Ecoturisme (Porreras), the Tianna Negre winery (Binissalem), the cloister of Sant Francesc (Sineu Town Hall) and the Canyamel Tower (Capdepera).
Local and national artists stand out among the protagonists of the Deià International Music Festival 2023, as well as a large group of international musicians from Italy, China, South Korea, Bulgaria, Cuba and Denmark, who will share highly diverse musical proposals. As well as delighting audiences with classical music pieces, they will be making forays into other genres such as jazz, tango and folk music in an effort to create an eclectic festival that caters to all tastes.
