About

Samson François and Louis Frémaux enthuse the Monte Carlo National Opera Orchestra and its audience with the Concerto for the left hand by Ravel.

You needn't expect just a simple piano lesson from the person who said "It is out of my love for love that I learnt music." An artist to the ends of his sleepless nights, Samson François plays the way he is, in an atypical, rebellious and surprising manner. "Playing piano, how awful! Playing at the piano!," is how he likes to put it.
