Deep and precise music woven with sophisticated techniques and transparent tones

Born in northern France in 1956. In 1975, he completed the entire course at the Paris Conservatoire in two years, and also graduated with the unanimous first prize from the judges. In 1977, at the young age of 21, he became a solo flutist with the Orchester National de France. During his orchestral activities, he received high acclaim for his solo performances under the direction of Maazel and Marriner. Since then, he has been working independently as a soloist, performing with flute Rampal and violinist Stern.

Since 1990, signed a contract with Gramophone, and developed ambitious activities to break new ground even for CD recordings, such as all songs of Paganini's "Caprice" without accompaniment, and the tango "Piazzolla for Two" by duo with Serschel on guitar. . In 1990, he appeared as a guest in "Co-starring the Three Tenors", which attracted worldwide attention, and listened to his expressive music. It has been 9 years since he switched to a woodwind flute made of red sandalwood, and since then he has been emphasizing deeper musical expression, and is actively developing contemporary music and commissioned premieres of new works. I can say that.
