A pre-concert discussion that will shed light on the process of creating a work for orchestra and allow for an exchange with composers Alexandre David, Francis Battah and Laurence Jobidon about the compositional intent that led to the creation of their piece for the Orchestre de l’Agora. Nicolas Ellis (conductor) will moderate the discussion, which will address the challenges and benefits of collaborating with artists who write specifically for an ensemble. He will also discuss the rehearsal process, exchanges with the performers and the development of a concert program that highlights contemporary creation.
