if you're a percussionist, this is the place for you. i'm a percussionist in the met orchestra, and in 2014 i recorded the delécluse: douze études for snare drum for the first time in its 50-year history. i also traveled to the south of france and interviewed the man himself. here are some cool things you can do:

in august of 2014 i sat down at the beach house of jacques delécluse with him, his wife danielle, and his daughter florence. florence was interpreting.
