Véronique Nosbaum is a very special personality in Luxembourg vocal scenery. She is one of those naturally involved in many kinds of art creation – contemporary art, theatre, literature, music. Romain Nosbaum is an individualist among the pianists of his generation. Without airs and graces, but with modesty and passionate devotion, he is solely focused on music. Both the grand gesture and sheer brilliancy are not his main focus – instead, his playing stands out through intelligence, subtle individuality and technical perfection.
