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 Richard Strauss and Camille Saint-Saëns, and through Paris where I joined in 1909 the Philharmonic Orchestra of The Credit Lyonnais bank and performed in Salle Gaveau and Salle Pleyel. I have preserved my deep and pure 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. »
