Festival Singer-Polignac (About)

About

Following a hugely successful first run in 2020, the Festival Singer-Polignac returns for a second edition in 2021!

The music residency, founded in 2006 on the initiative of professor Yves Pouliquen of the Académie française, has had a profound effect on the Foundation’s efforts to support music, particularly chamber music. By welcoming young soloists, ensembles and composers to perform in its salons, the Foundation continues the patronage established by Winnaretta Singer, the Princess of Polignac, in the early twentieth century, which saw her support composers such as Fauré, Ravel, Debussy, Falla, Stravinsky, Satie, Tailleferre, Milhaud, and Poulenc. 

The artists participating in the second edition include Michiko Takahashi, Rodrigo Ferreira, Mathilde Calderini, Philibert Perrine, Amaury Viduvier, Julien Chauvin, Shuichi Okada, Pierre-Eric Nimylowycz, Atsushi Sakaï, Adrien Bellom, Justin Taylor, Théo Fouchenneret, Philippe Hattat, Jonas Vitaud, Guillaume Vincent, the Arnold and Xenakis trios, the Elmire and Hanson quartets, and ensembles La Fresque, and Le Balcon.
