My first year as Music and Artistic director of the OPMC was full of exciting discoveries, of research and of consolidating the links between the orchestra, the administration and the public. I finish this season with the feeling of gratitude and a beautiful success.

The theme of our second season is "Invitation for a Journey".

We would like to take you on a trip all over the world through the music and show its variety and diversity. I would be pleased if you listen to these different styles of music that will contribute to the journey's imagination.

From this season we will establish a new "residency", and will welcome Mr. Xavier de Maistre as the first artist. He will perform in concertos as well as in a recital and in a spiritual concert. `

In 2017, we marked the 80th anniversary of Ravel's death, in 2018 it will be a hundred years of Debussy's death and 100 years of Bernstein's birth, so we chose these spotlights for these composers.

Also, this future season will present many pieces that will be premiered in Monaco and I am very pleased to introduce them to the public.

A tour is planned in Paris, at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées, in Amsterdam, but also in Asia and I hope to be able to offer the culture from Monaco to the world.

Please enjoy!!
