About the musicians

Noé Clerc, born in 1996 is a multi-talented accordionist. Born in the South West of France, he studied classical and contemporary accordion at the CNSM (Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique) followed by further studies in jazz and improvised music. He performs and records with various ensembles in France and abroad such as the French/Serbian «Undectet Band», the flautist Magic Malik, the Israeli Oud player Habib Sheadeh Anna and his project «Our Story» which mixes Jazz and Arab music, with the Quartet of the Bulgarian guitarist Dimitar Blagoev and with the Balkan music ensemble «Kosmopolitevitch». He founded the Noé Clerc Trio in 2018 playing personal compositions. His trio won the «Leopold Bellan» and «Jazz à St Germain des prés» competitions. As a passionate and curious musician, he is always on the lookout for new musical adventures.

Nicolas Arsenijevic is one of the most recognised saxophonists of his generation. Graduated from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris in 2016 in the class of Claude Delangle, he has been navigating for several years between contemporary creation, original repertoire for saxophone, transcriptions, traditional music from the Balkans or even musical theatre. Winner of numerous international competitions, Nicolas Arsenijevic performs regularly in France as well as throughout the world where he also performs numerous master-classes. His collaboration with young composers from IRCAM and CNSMDP has given rise to original creations such as the show Quatre corps enquête d’auteur created in 2014 in Paris. In 2017, he recorded a critically acclaimed disc (Indé’sens label) dedicated to Johannes Brahms’ sonatas for clarinet and cello transcribed on saxophone with pianist Françoise Buffet. He also teaches at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. Nicolas Arsenijevic is a Selmer artist and laureate of the Cziffra Foundation since 2013.
