Guillaume Masson, an audacious and creative pianist, studied in the Royal Academy of music in London, and his experience anchors in international performances. This recording, at the « Théâtre des Champs-Elysées » is unrivaled since it features a pioneering program he has begun ten years ago, the one of converting various compositions into piano performances. The background of that very specific and brilliant recording is the work of Joe Hisaishi, who composed the soundtrack of movies directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Discover Guillaume Masson's work "Mon voisin Totoro", a title referring to an animation film released in 1988 in which two young girls meet Totoro, a creature that guards the nearby forest. When piano meets a fantasy world !
