Tribute by Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister of Culture and Communication, to Michel Glotz
With Michel Glotz disappears a great man of music, a
producer, an impresario, an artistic director of
which has sublimated the career of the greatest artists such as the
Callas or Karajan.
He knew how to orient the talent of the performers marvelously and
the origin of many rare and magical moments because, more than anything, its
friendly and artistic complicity with the musicians was a
inexhaustible source of success.
He has also helped popularize classical music through
quality recordings, now legendary. He wanted to
music culture to all audiences, and to the
neophyte to the most demanding.
His disappearance is a loss, fortunately he leaves us «La Note
Blue», the testimony of a rich and exciting life in the service of
art, music and musicians.
