The artistic and cultural aim of the Frank Martin Odyssey Association (Association l’Odyssée Frank Martin) centres on three axes. These act as invitations to bring to life and to as wide an audience as possible a commemorative musical cycle that incorporates many different points of view and creative approaches in order to ensure its enjoyment by the greatest possible number of people.

One vision. 50 years after his death, to celebrate Frank Martin and share unique musical moments by showcasing, over three consecutive seasons and for the first time ever, the entirety of his body of work.

One mission. Through a commitment to memory, inclusion, heritage and cultural mediation, to

Our values. As inspired by the spirit of Frank Martin himself:
