To date, I have been led to collaborate with these ensembles / artists.

Trio Mérion

Trio Mérion

A few words, just to raise curiosity, a short silence to captivate and music to tell stories...

Gabrielle, Julien and Josquin are your guides in this intriguing voyage during which emotions and feelings mingle with daring and simplicity.
