With 'Paris 1884-1959', his first record with Aparté, Florian Billot gives us the soul of a city of which he is the pure musical result: he studied with Michel Béroff at the great institution common to almost all composers on this album, the Conservatoire de Paris, from 2002. From the romanticism of Franck, to the enlightening appeal to sensuality of Debussy, through the clear writting of Henri Dutilleux's 'Sonate', Florian Billot leads us to French musical treasure. 'Pavane pour une infante défunte' and 'Improvisation n°15, Hommage à Edith Piaf' by Francis Poulenc, end the disc with a heartfelt hommage from one of the Six to his friend. Florian Billot offers a subtle and comforting musical interpretation, highlighting the colours of Parisian life in the early 20th century.
