Itinéraire Baroque in Périgord Vert

Itinéraire Baroque is a mixture of Baroque music,

an educational approach and Romanesque

architecture. Ton Koopman, an organist,

harpsichordist and orchestra director of the

Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir, created

this festival in 2002. Its three guiding elements are

the secret to its exuberance.
