En remontant le fleuve de notre histoire d’amour
En remontant le cours de notre histoire fleuve
Je nous vois tous les deux à la source profonde
Dans le bleu de tes yeux où les eaux se confondent (…)

Gaspard Glaus by Pascal Auberson

In order to do this, I had to surround myself with musicians who had the same desire to work on the written word, but also to take the time to research together, while decompartmentalizing our universes, which had been locked up for so long in fashions, genres, and well-established postures, without losing the identity of each one. It is with Gaspard Glaus, a lifelong friend, that I started my career. We were twenty years old and had a common passion for the stage. Read more

Ariane Haering by Pascal Auberson

I am very happy that such a personality, such a great pianist recognized far and wide, accepts my proposal with such joy and simplicity. It is quite rare in this world of fierce competition that artists of this notoriety accept with such ease to question themselves.

It is thanks to Gaspard Glaus that I met musically Ariane Haering during a streaming in these times of Covid 19 behind a flat screen. Read more

Ariane Haering on Eros, Thanatos & the Sun:
Reunion, musical thrills and friendships

As I unwind the thread of my recital, an imperceptible link is woven. Alone in front of my piano, Gaspard at a reasonable distance, Pascal behind his screen, the common desire to try to bring together our passions and our musical forces imposed itself.

Waiting for the event that would change the quiet course of my piano adventures, ready to look beyond a defined horizon, it is the spark of the Auberson / Glaus duo illuminating their intense complicity that will convince me to dare to say Yes, without hesitation.

From my Mozartian, Beethovenian, Brahmsian and Stravinskian background, from these ancestral rhythms and pulsations, our escapes, our chords, our harmonic digressions will be born.

A common language, a form of concert/show allowing to explore a new space of creation. Each one for himself and infinitely united between a breath, a voice, words, arpeggios, a stream of sostenuto and an inspired flight.

We leave to find the Essential in three without chewing our wounds.

Gaspard Glaus on Eros, Thanatos & the Sun
June 29, 2021, 7pm

First performance of our trio live for the RTS. From the very first notes, I feel a musical communication of an extremely strong level and intensity.

Ariane, the musicality and the sound, Pascal, the vocal warmth and the rhythmic intensity, move me at every measure. We form a triangle that moves through music, in music, in all music. Our experiences bring Stravinsky, Ravel, Bill Evans, Mozart, Purcell, improvisation and writing to our ears.

A dream, for an arranger, of almost intimidating beauty and size and wildly challenging.

We play like it’s the most important thing in the world… and it is.

I am delighted.
