When you look at the keys…I love the sensation to press the keys of the piano; the feeling of making sound with my fingers is incredible.
Making music is not just about…To be musician is not just making music; it’s a life with travels, understanding different cultures of the world, sharing emotions and a lot more than just a performance.
The sound of Piano…Is the most beautiful sound in the world; it’s possible to play very percussive but very sensual also !
Your world of music…Classical music and French songs
Music has taught you…Discipline, the taste of the work, sharing;
Your growing up years…A lot of piano, lessons, brilliants teachers, concerts and a lot of great memories!
Your achievements and awards make you think…The way to become an artist professionally is long and intensive work but the reward is beautiful !
The kind of music that you want to make…Classical music and transcriptions of popular songs; always on stage because it’s the most pleasant place for an artist.
Your performance in India…I am looking forward to meet the Indian audience. It’s going to be a fantastic experience to discover this beautiful country.
The musician who inspires me the most…The musicians like Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Michel Legrand and American singers; I like electronic music!
People think musicians…musicians live in another world. It’s sometimes true, but musicians are just dreamers !
I wish I could…If not a musician, I would have wanted to be airline pilot.
I want to visit (in India)…Without hesitation, the Taj Mahal!
