On the big screen - "Encontros" by François Manceaux
I recently had the pleasure of collaborating in a movie again! This time I recorded excerpts by Chopin and Poulenc and also taught the actress how to move on the piano so that it would look as is she was playing. A very nice and interesting experience! (May 2021)
