This new season will be full of contrasts and surprises to experience together. It covers centuries of musical history and theatrical adventures. All these epics sketch out sensitive journeys into the imagination of today's and tomorrow's artists, and sometimes obvious and often unpredictable links are woven between repertoire and creation, between avant-garde and unifying works.
From Offenbach's music to Cherubini's Requiem, from Xenakis to David Krakauer's volutes of sound, there are many events where the word "festive" will have its place.
The season will open with Béla Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra, and will be punctuated by a host of concerts, shows, jams, and two highlights: Les Nocturnes du Conservatoire in December and the Courants d'airs festival in April.
All these events are waiting for you; 700 students from the five continents and 250 teachers will be on deck to play the game of dialogue with the public, a demanding confrontation but always tinged with benevolence.
We look forward to your presence throughout this new programme, which has been put together for you.
Frédéric de Roos, Director
