The Agora festival is the pillar event within the Ircam’s musical season.
Agora, seeks to promote today’s music as well as its relationship to technology and other artistic forms. It responds to the urgent need today, to increase the public space for creation. The festival is aimed at anyone who is curious to taste artistic adventure and risk and to share the insatiable emotion of music.
This seventh edition of the festival foreshadows issues that will, no doubt, be increasingly fundamental in the years to come. The monographic concert which takes the time to explore the unique language of a composer, the portrait of an instrumentalist, giving us the chance to appreciate an instrument’s different capabilities as well as its evolution, the place offered to young performers and composers and even the performances scheduled in the heart of the Paris’s 4th district, are the fundamentals of this program.
