Artistic Committee

I am delighted to hear of the launch of this new large scale project which supports French and British contemporary classical music: Diaphonique is built on the long term relationship between our two countries in this domain, and will without any doubt stimulate exchange and creativity

Pierre Laurent Aimard, Pianist and Director of the Aldeburgh Festival, honorary member

This is with great sadness that we inform you of the decease of our dear Paul Parkinson – Paul was a member of Diaphonique’s artistic committee since its launch. His contribution was extremely valuable and his support very precious. He will be missed.
