After a career of more than 30 years as a pianist, composer and orchestrator, 17 albums as leader in various structures, I built my work around a major axis which is very dear to me and intrinsic to my musical training: the mixing of jazz and classical music.
Indeed, I started music with the accordion and classical piano, writing and orchestration at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris before discovering jazz and investing myself in it with passion. I did not however forget my training, my admiration for certain classical composers and musicians. It was thus very natural for me to continue working according to this experience.
I participated in many “mixed” projects, as solo piano, in a septet (classical string quatuor + jazz trio), a classical chamber orchestra + jazz trio, and finally a symphonic orchestra + jazz trio, constantly composing and orchestrating for these ever bigger ensembles.
My previous albums : in 2015 with the Prague Symphonic Orchestra (“Ethnic Sounds”, released in 2016 by Ilona Records), and “Pursuit of Happiness” (released end of april 2018 by Ilona Records), consist in writing for a big band of 15 musicians and a trio, always searching for a composition nourished by my history.
