Why Flash-back? “Because almost twenty years ago I left orchestral playing. A big decision. I started to look for another role for the double bass in the world of classical music, with my only compass being instinct, with no preconceived ideas, and the only safeguard being knowing when to stop if necessary, to look and learn.

It has been said that the double bass is limited; we often hear of this or that double bassist “pushing the limits”. I wanted to be exactly ON the edge, at the edge of sound, the edge of volume, the edge of technique…” Laurène Helstroffer Durantel
