François's biography out now

François‘s biography out now

It is there ... finally. The fully authorised biography of François Glorieux. Describing a life and career as diverse as François‘s cannot have been an easy undertaking, but Henri Bultinck pulls it off with the necessary flair.

It is not a traditional biography. How would that be possible with someone like François Glorieux? It is an exploration of the life and work of a musician pur sang. The sometimes extravagant meetings and the many travels of the pianist - conductor - composer - improviser are told in a number of anecdotes. It also gives the critical reader a unique view into the often flawed cultural policies in Belgium and Flanders over the last decennia. The book contains lots of pictures and ends with a discography and an overview of his many compositions.

In short: an absolute must-have for every fan of François and his music. But be careful, it exists only in Dutch. Of course, nobody is stopping you to start learning Dutch right away :).

François made a trip to Prague last May, to celebrate the book going to the printers and of course he played a concert over there. We would not be francoisglorieux.com if we had not been able to put some pictures online.
