Cartier Foundation - Paris - 07/04/1996
This was a very nice meeting after an acoustic concert in which Ryuichi Sakamoto was playing piano alongside Everton Nelson (violin) and Jacques Morelenbaum (cello).
Eclectic musician, Ryuichi Sakamoto has foundedd the 'Yellow Magic Orchestra' with Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi. He has written many soundtracks among which 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence' by Nagisa Oshima in 1983 and 'The Last Emperor' by Bernardo Bertolucci in 1987. Among many of his collaborations we can quote the English singer David Sylvian.
Frédéric Rossille has dedicated to him one of his pieces in trio entitled 'Message de l'Archipel'.
