    Established since 1921 at the Château de Fontainebleau during the summer, the Fontainebleau Schools (EAAF) are a French foundation tasked with making French culture better known to foreign students in the fields of music and architecture. To celebrate this centenary, the association naturally approached the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris since the two institutions have maintained strong links for many years. The desire to bring together students and professors for this evening, beyond the symbolism, thus makes it possible to assemble the large number of musicians required for Edgar Varèse's piece Amériques, composed in 1921 but whose revised version of 1927 will be performed this evening. The programme also includes works by two emblematic composers, Maurice Ravel, briefly director of the EAAF, and Lili Boulanger, whose sister, Nadia, directed the EAAF for 30 years. Philippe Bianconi, soloist of Ravel's G concerto, was also director of the EAAF and conductor Bruno Mantovani is a member of its Artistic Committee.
