Jean Cocteau was a multi-disciplinary protean artiste who embraced creativity in all its forms… With inimitable elegance, Jean Cocteau created a body of oeuvres which is considered today to be of great importance.
Pierre Bergé | President Comité Jean Cocteau
It is a great honour for the Menton Festival which this year will celebrate its 66th anniversary to work with Bösendorfer on this exceptional piano. Cocteau was an avid visitor to the Festival and the special relationship he maintained with the city of Menton confers a particular sense to this project.
