Newspaper ‘Le Parisien’ talks about our Delmet project (Feburuary 24) !! Thanks to Elodie Soulié for this beautiful article!!
It’s the year of the tiger, yes, it’s my year (don’t calculate my age)!
I wish you all a wonderful year 2022. Good health above all, fewer viruses, fewer masks and more concerts… for example, our recital ‘Au bord de l’eau’ in February!!
I am pleased to announce the release of a project in which I have been participating since the spring 2021: a recording with the tenor Enguerrand Dubroca of the complete songs of Paul Delmet (1862-1904), a Montmartre composer considered by the greatest artists of his time, Claude Debussy, Paul Verlaine, Armand Silvestre… as a legend of French song, who had capturered the soul of his time.
Before the complete version is released on disc in the spring of 2022, every day, for 35 weeks, we publish a new song on social media and online music platforms, taken from the complete recordings. Out of these 239 songs, only 45 had been recorded on disc in the past. It is therefore the real world premiere for these complete songs !
Don’t forget to read the descriptions and look at the pictures if you want to discover Paul Delmet and the Montmartre culture of the Belle Époque. And don’t hesitate to like (every day if you want), to talk about it (every day if you want), that would encourage us to continue this immense adventure!
Since the 5th November, the recordings (7 chansons par semaine) are available on streaming and download platforms (Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, iTunes…). The recordings are edited and broadcast by the Salis & Cats label.

Concert at sea with Clara Bellon (coloratura soprano) at the Port-Navalo, Bretagne.
The notes mingled with the sound of the waves … it was a literary extraordinary experience !!
Today, the training course “Opera role study:Massenet’s Werther“, organized by the Royaumont foundation, supervised by Patrice Caurier, Moshe Leiser (directors) and Jean-Paul Pruna (vocal coach) to which I have the pleasure (REALLY !!) to participate has started.
This makes me doubly happy because it could have been canceled like most events this summer.
The work to understand what is happening in each sentence, each word, or between sentences of this opera is extremely fruitful. Can’t wait for tomorrow !!
On April 5th, my musician friends Prune and Nicolas challenged their companions to do a cover of “Somebody To Love”, each at home with the equipment they had. 31 participants (me at the piano) and 5 weeks later, here is the result. Hurray for the music and the friends !
Hoping that the world will soon begin to live fully again, including the world of music and entertainment, I open this site, which will allow you to inform yourself, in particular, about my projects and my upcoming performances. You can also contact me via the site, or subscribe to the more or less monthly newsletter (in French or English), where I will inform you of my next concerts.
I warmly thank Mong Diep Lê who made me this magnificent logo, by marvelously capturing my personality, my passions and my affection for this profession (she also made me my business cards in three languages which I look forward to being able to start distributing!). I also thank my companion who devoted time and energy to build this site which will help me to start this new page of my life.
See you soon, and above all, take care!
