Editorial by Marc Voichet, director of France Musique
For France Musique, this beginning of the 2023 academic year opens the “gate” season.
Gateway because, given the strength of the projects now completed, both on-air and digitally, it is an expanded France Musique that we now present.
And this with a constant concern to be faithful to the creation of France Musique: to make people love, transmit, entertain, share the huge heritage of musical history from the Middle Ages to the present day.
How to ? Developing a new offer architecture and creating new structures for unparalleled exposure of our inexhaustible treasures and original works.
Creating biographies of great composers, baptized Musical sagas Saskia de Ville, is a large and unprecedented chain project. These monographs will be like so many new frameworks that will carry both our invaluable resources and the future content, the archives of tomorrow.
These “Sagas” will be like a library with a clear and pleasant repository that is very easy to access. For example, if you click on the “Mozart saga”, you will not only find an unpublished biography of the composer, but also everything that France Musique has produced and will produce about him. And that, from Schubert to Clara Schumann, from Hildegard von Bingen to Stravinsky, from Beethoven to Ravel… Ad libitum!
These “sagas” will always be accompanied by small modules, like “front doors”, which in less than five minutes will give you the gist, the taste of what you are looking for and who knows, the desire to know any further.
A building site for the future of France Musique, which also allows us to reconnect with the story offering that complements the increasingly musical linear offering.
France Musique Augmentée is also the creation of two YouTube channels. One, entirely dedicated to our educational content, sources of knowledge and scholarship, accessible to young people and beyond… The other, “France Musique Concerts”: music and only music. Free concerts to watch and listen: a rich offer of classical music, jazz, opera, world and contemporary music, musicals… With a strong exposure of the four formations of Radio France.
There is also the arrival of France Musique Augmented, “finally! some will say ballet on our air with Ballet in the heart, by Hipolit Peres. The world of this very young man is the world of dance. From the great names in choreography and in the field of legendary ballets, he offers us this new weekly meeting about this art so closely related to the history of music. At noon on Friday!
France Musique Augmentée is also about the arrival of new programs. Here is the program of the day on the antenna: The essentials Francois Xavier Szymczak, delve into the discography and the great box sets that honor leading artists. There, inside podcast and online only: Helmet and anvil by Lionel Esparza, a review of current shows, a great album not to be missed, or a burning question. With the help of the best journalists in the music world.
France Musique Augmented also has a renewed sound design for more fun and enjoyment, signed by Clément Ducol.
France Musique Augmented is France Musique with more and more pleasure, emotion and joy.
