Clarinets: André MOISAN

Piano: Jean SAULNIER




Andre Moisan, whose recordings have all been acclaimed by international critics, delivers for the first time in his career a surprising new album of jazz inspiration. After several years of research from a repertoire inspired by jazz in a more formal structure, he shares with us, with his accomplice Jean Saulnier, his discoveries of a style still too little explored and of exceptional richness.


An accessible and friendly recital where communication with the public is at the forefront and which will please both the initiated and the neophyte.



- Paquito D'Rivera - Mike Mower
- Daniel Mercury
- Bela Kovacs

- Joseph Horowitz - Robert Muczynski  


In tribute to the great jazzmen 

“I have a lot of respect for clarinettists like Benny Goodman and so many others who knew how to stimulate composers to cross this border between jazz and the more “classical” world and cause the emergence of a new style.”  - André Moisan
