Harmony with music, nature and human

Since 1998 I have lived in Paris and met various musicians. I lived with music and created my pieces there. I’m very grateful that many musicians around the world have performed my pieces with their sympathy for my music.

In 2018, after 20 years in Paris, I moved to a small village called Puget in the Luberon (in Southern France Provence) for my new step in my life.

Here, the beautiful light shines down, the pleasant wind that blows down under the clear blue sky sounds pine needles, and at night the full starry sky where the flow of the galaxy can be seen spreads. When the season comes, the flowers of red poppy and Lavender bloom, and each day is blessed by nature with fruits, vegetables and herbs. The Luberon is full of the energy of nature and the joy of life.

Through my life here, I have come to want to share and transmit the joy of music in this surroundings. Now I can deeply understand why Sviatoslav Richter chose The Luberon for the place of the now-famous ”Festival International de Piano de la Roque d’Anthéron”. I built a music salon in our home for sharing the music. I named here “La Mélodieuse”.

At this “La Mélodieuse”, a new type of class has started since the summer of 2020. Regardless of amateur, professional, age, performance level, or instrumentation, I would like to meet a variety of people who loves the music here.

Last summer, 2022, two flutists who I can call my old friends, pianists who I can trust their music and lovely students who came from all over the world, I spent precious time with them. It remains as a lights overflowing memory for me. Also, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the people of our Puget village who warmly supported this event and to all the audience who gathered for the concerts.

In 2023, we will continue to hold two classes with them, wonderful flutists Carol Wincenc (Professor of Juilliard School) and Michel Moragues (Soliste of l’Orchestre National de France, Professor of Chamber Music at C.N.S.M. de Paris).

Well, once again, a bright summer is on its way back to the Luberon. I hope that the musical gathering we started will continue for a long time here in Puget Village.

” My music can be listened through your performance. So for me as a composer, each performer is a very precious person.
I think, it is a certain privilege that musicians and composer who are living in the same epoch can work together for creating the music. I believe… “
