- the recorder surprises and fascinates me, for its particular sound and history, its hidden difficulty and its rich and varied repertoire.
- transcribing early music pieces from original facsimiles or manuscripts.
- eloquent music & players, articulation, nuances, agogics…
- stories, impressions and sentiments told without words but by melodies.
