“Cédric is an active musician. Among his many qualities, I would highlight his elegance in playing, wonderful sound and artistic sensitivity combined with a very high technical knowledge of the instrument. His refined sense about colors in music makes his interpretations rich and alive. He shines specially when playing chamber music where he develops all these colors and interesting ideas. It becomes a true pleasure to listen to him.”
