"La vie en rose", sings Edith Piaf, elated by the atmosphere of a city which
has inspired artists – painters, poets and musicians – from all over the world.
This album is a tribute to this city which has fascinated Sebastian Sternal ever
since his childhood.
And finally in autumn 2007 he moved for a year to Paris in order to study at the
Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse, to meet people, imbibe
the atmosphere of places and experience their mood and spirit.
This gave rise to a very personal picture of Paris. Two "old" friends
accompanied him on this journey – Sebastian Klose on the double bass, and Axel
Pape on percussion. They have been playing together for 8 years now – inspired
by that familiar interaction process that leads them again and again to discover
new musical structures.
It is also a greatest pleasure to introduce their guest from Paris: Anne-Marie
Jean. With her versatile voice, she, as a Frenchwoman, lends a special
authenticity to this city portrait.
