Classical music has been excluded from our everyday playlists for some time. This is a project to translate and renew the great masterpieces of music, the “beautiful antiques”, which have been stored deep inside the treasure house, into “modern music.” Together with modern artists, we will be reforming such beautiful music with absolute value.

Faure is the one of the foremost French composers of the 19th Century.
Even though his contemporaries attempted to break away from the classical mode, he remained at the edge between tonality and atonality. He went on to write beautiful melodies and elegant harmonies.
Faure's songs are just as fresh and beautiful today. This timeless avant‐garde will reach out to every listener without abandoning anybody.
”Art, especially music, will pull human beings from reality as much as possible.”
(Nectoux “Gabriel Fauré: A Musical Life” P.732)
