Foreign professionals taking part in this Focus will be offered the opportunity to discover French emerging artists (ensembles, orchestras, composers) through a selection of concerts from Manifeste, but also in several venues programming contemporary music in Paris, including the newly opened Paris Philharmony. They will be able to meet artists and their management through conferences, round-tables and speed-meeting sessions. Several new pieces by emerging and confirmed composers will be put forward, and several ensembles will make presentations about their forthcoming projects, in partnership with Futurs Composés and SACEM.
