Initiated by the Institut français, in association with their partners – Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles, Festival d’Ambronay, European Early Music Network, Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Lyon, FEVIS network, Bureau Export – the Focus aims to promote not only the French early music repertoire, but also the historically informed interpretation of this repertoire on period instruments.
 
A new generation of French artists and ensembles is currently stepping forward in concert halls. They spent their childhood listening to pioneers like William Christie, Jean-Claude Malgoire, Nikolaus Harnoncourt or René Jacobs… They studied in Early Music Departments in France, Germany or the Netherlands. They have their own vision of the early music repertoire, historically informed but with a modern taste, based on a better scientific knowledge, but also inspired by new forms produced on the international stage.
 
The Early Music Focus will showcase this new generation of emerging artists, to help them develop their career to an international level. The artistic journey will include concerts, auditions, but also meetings between French artists and international professionals: panels, speed-meetings, … Meetings will also be organised with French programmers, in order to develop new opportunities, and foster new partnerships.
 
The invitation of music professionals from various countries will be supported by the French cultural network abroad (French Embassies, Instituts français, Alliances françaises).
