Michel Portal's reflections
The clarinetist, saxophonist and bandoneonist Michel Portal plays on all fronts: classical, contemporary music and jazz, as Francis Marmande reports ( Le Monde ). Sometimes he has the feeling that he multiplies, Portal reflects, especially when looking at the different projects he is participating in. He travels a lot to be able to pass along the message of his research. Whenever he plays classical music, he is looking for the exact note, and has a lot of respect for the score. In jazz he can play the life.
