WRITTEN BY

« Forgive me if I am a bit of a show-off but I deserve it. I am 140 years old and have a successful musical career behind me. I was born in 1880 in Mirecourt, the birthplace of French stringed instrument making. And then ? Well, follow me along the roads of France and enjoy the trip that my double bass player and I are making to reconstruct my story. This trip passes through Marseille where I played in an orchestra conducted by renowned composers of that time, such as Strauss and Saint-Saëns, and through Paris where I belonged to the orchestra of the Crédit Lyonnais and played in concert halls like the Salle Gaveau and the Salle Pleyel. I have preserved my deep tone that has been admired by all the double bass players we have met during our investigation. Yes, I am a show-off but I am a grand lady.»
