The concept of gastronomy, wine and music,
combined in a unique artistic and aesthetic experience is a first of its kind in Switzerland.
The first Culinary Concert, The Serenade of Seasons,
allowed you to travel, despite the current crises and closures, both tastefully and musically,
and what better than the Four Seasons of Vivaldi and of Piazzolla to transport you to
Venice and Buenos Aires.
Lake Geneva was also a refuge and home for Tchaikovsky, Strauss, Stravinsky and many other musical giants.
For Easter 2021, we will offer the Poetry of Spring, featuring soprano and star of Vienna State Opera, Teodora Gheorghiu, in Richard Strauss' Four Last Songs.
Maestro John Axelrod will also conduct the International Orchestra of Geneva in Debussy's Prelude à l'après midi d'un faune, the original version of Copland's Appalachian Spring, and Wine, Woman and Song by Johann Strauss II.
At the Grande Salle de Chardonne, guests will enjoy a dégustation of Lavaux wines personally selected by Philippe Verdan, owner of À La Demi-Lune Chardonne,
and hors d’oeuvres especially prepared by Mathieu Bruno of the Restaurant "Là Haut."
To complete the experience,
Chef Mathieu Bruno invites only 40 guests to "Là Haut"
for an intimate and exclusive gastronomic 5 course dinner.
Celebrate Easter as this synesthesia of the senses courts you
with the Poetry of Spring.

and is given Heritage of Humanity status by UNESCO.
