A Cultural Encounter Centre since 2003, Ambronay created Ambronay Editions in 2005. Its publications respond to a double objective: they bear witness to the vivacity of the Centre's activities in the fields of live performance and training in early music, and also broaden its sphere of activity and that of the scientific board around the theme of 'music and the sacred'.
With an approach bringing together the world of sound, our core activity and our heritage, it seemed to us appropriate to launch our own record label. The other aspect of our work is in the written word, objective and thoughtful collaborations between artists and researchers on the themes tackled by Ambronay; this takes shape through the publication of books.
Ambronay's publications are rooted in a contemporary setting; they underline the interpretive act, the creative gesture, the human perspective. Without neglecting pure scholarship, it is essential to us to bring to the forefront interpretation, creation and debate, through the choice of programmes that we record and the books that we publish. Since 2005, the record label has grown by four to five critically acclaimed releases each year, while our books fall into two main categories, coffee table books and academic journals.
