  • About the event

    ​​In April 2020, the towns of Bergem and Vianden will welcome young and talented artists eager to share their passion for classical music with you.

    ​The Agora Music Festival is the first classical music festival centered around the original creations of performers-composers, in equal parts with the traditional repertoire. During four days of concerts, the public will discover the contemporary form of the lost tradition of Vivaldi and Paganini, Liszt and Rachmaninov - the composition and interpretation of the work being presented by the performer himself. The composition will often be created for the festival itself.

    ​We hope to create a lasting event in the center of musical Europe, a place of alliances across time of several generations of performers: an agora, faithful to the past, open to the future.

    Why should you sponsor?

    The Agora Music Festival is particular in the luxembourgish landscape of classical music festivals. It focuses on featuring performer-composers, a practice quite common among pop and rock musicians, but much less common in the classical music world. 

    The potential sponsor will get visibility throughout Luxembourg prior the commencement of the festival.

    Agora Music Festival a.s.b.l  - Our mission

    The Agora Music Festival a.s.b.l, created in 2019, aims to organize, in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, an international classical music festival. From Vivaldi to Rachmaninov, it has always been usual for a composer to perform his own works on stage. This tradition, however, began to fade in the early 20th century, separating performers and composers. Our desire to revive this tradition is therefore new compared to the current landscape of classical music, but rooted in a very old tradition. We want to establish a continuity between so-called classical music and new music written for the same instruments, and using the same essential techniques. Inspired by an emerging generation of composers, we focus on a choice of tonal music, based on instrumental practice. We have seen the spectacular potential of 'in vivo' musical creation, of the composer playing his music in front of the public, and this festival aims to create a double appointment: classical works and contemporary creations.
