YOANN   LOUSTALOT 

 

"Yoann Loustalot is like a very rare flower that, when it appears in a garden, makes all the other flowers disappear. It's not just a "beautiful sound". No, it is the sound of the soul and it is so deep and authentic that every note counts and tales.
He constantly invents melodies that remain engraved in the air and in our heads.
Passion, care, attention, love.
I have almost never felt so close to another trumpeter before. »

 

ENRICO RAVA
