Since 1964 the annual summer festival of S. Richter "Music Festival in Touraine" has been held in the premises of a medieval barn in Melle near Tour.

"It all started by accident. I was invited by citizens and intelligentsia of Touraine. They began to show me the castles. They looked wonderful, but acoustically they were not good, but the large barn - the old, of course – was perfect. There was no pomposity. People of Touraine offered to hold music festivals in June, I agreed".
