I am VERY happy to announce the release of my new recording: early and late sonatas by HAYDN, from n°13 to 51. I'm especially proud of this production (music, sound, mastering). Many thanks to Richard Wigmore for his fine contribution.

Augmented piano recital

I developed this project with Marc Piera, sound director at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris, where he perfected an avant-garde sound system.
Throughout the recital, the piano is amplified and transformed, while the sound is spatialised.
As it goes along, the electro joins in the dance.

The Art of Piano Improvisation

Art de l'improvisation au piano

My new book-DVD, devoted to the Art of Improvisation at the Piano, is now available (in French).

Originating from a commission of the Ile de France region, it sums up the main part of the contents of my master class for piano teachers, which started in 2011 in Paris. I filmed more than forty examples at the piano. The images are by Nelson Castro. You can watch three of those on Youtube:
