> DVD Vingt regards sur l'Enfant-Jésus mit Roger Muraro
"It is [in Petichet] at the edge of the Lake Laffrey (Isère) that Stéphan Aubé, director of this documentary of true artistic quality, invited Roger Muraro to speak about the birds, colours, rhythms and methods, as well as faith whilst also filming the landscape, the flora, the sky, the surface of the lake [...]
It is rare that a documentary brings together the atmosphere of the music and endeavours to offer images to the eye that sharpen our hearing." Le Monde - 30 May 2005 - Gé. C. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"Admirably filmed by Stéphan Aubé, this concert is as enthralling to see as to hear.
The beauty of the light, the intelligence of the angles of sight, the power of interpretation make this DVD an absolute wonder.
In addition to the concert (two hours of music), the DVD bonus includes a very beautiful documentary detailing principal topics of the work of Messiaen."

"... with the help of this very beautiful DVD, excellently directed by Stéphan Aubé, one can prepare for the concert." Cadences n°184 - May 2005 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Roger Muraro: "With Pierre-Henri Loÿs, the producer, and Stéphan Aubé, the director, we aimed for a small video crew, with few cameras, to resemble the environment in a concert as closely as possible. Stéphan Aubé, who is also a musician, worked with me in perfect mutual understanding. The film does not contain a single element unrelated to the musical context."
Diapason - May 2005 - Remarks collected by Jérôme Bastianelli ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"... our admiration for this double DVD, both magnificently musical and masterfully educational, which is accessible to everyone due to its simplicity, humanity and generosity. An exemplary production." Les années Laser - G.G. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"... From this point of view, the documentary by Stéphan Aubé is a masterful success.
The structure, filming and precise scripting are captivating and provide a corresponding introduction to the work of Messiaen himself... " classiquenews.com - Adrien De Vries - 2 May 2007 ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
> DVD Iannis Xenakis
" The visual impact of the percussion is particularly powerful in the filming of Rebonds B.
The clip's rapid and suitable editing style provides an essential key for the appreciation of the CD.
Far from the stereotypes of the architect-mathematician reproduced in the usual portraits of Xenakis." Le Monde - 9 November 2004 - Pierre Gervasoni "A very short but interesting documentary following the recording of Pedro Carneiro's interpretation of Xenakis' Rebonds. [...]
[It] offers a brief insight into the recording process of such pieces, exploring technical and artistic issues surrounding the production of Carneiro's interpretation. [...]
The figure of the producer, so often neglected outside the field of pop music, is highlighted before turning to short statements about Xenakis' music, its mathematical apparatus and its profoundly physical nature."
"... Behind each smile a wound is hidden or a possible act of violence, soft and pale colors [...], colors admirably transposed to each of the six songs filmed and contained on the DVD. Additionally a making-of". Diapason - October 2006 - François Laurent
> DVD Les clefs de l'orchestre de Jean-François Zygel - Boléro
"... revealing the secrets of a work, be it the most hackneyed, that is nevertheless still growing.
And the ceaseless conviction for the need of good musical pedagogy.
Especially the tasteful filming (sensual framing of the flautist) and the mischievous accompanying of the jazzy passages clearly reveal the instrumental alchemy." Telerama - n°2996 of 16 to 22 June 2007 - Bernard Mérigaud
