  1. I have had the pleasure of working with Lucian on a couple of projects. He is a topnotch musician, but what I as a composer found equally important and valuable is his understanding of the original composition, which enables his spot on performances.

  2. Lucian breathed life into several of my compositions last year, be it through a duduk (on https://soundcloud.com/jean-michel-george/all-you-are-about-to-destroy-1) or a saxophone (on https://soundcloud.com/jean-michel-george/rabbits). Highly valuable additions achieved in no time, with little – if any – need for musical directions. An annoyingly talented musician … Fortunately his friendship lasts a lot longer than his recording sessions :-)

    It’s hard to find musicians who play some of the middle eastern instruments. Many of the ones who live in Iran, Syria, didn’t even respond to me.

    However, Lucian ALWAYS replies, within an hour. He’s highly skilled, if he doesn’t have the instrument you want, he gets it made.

    His work is fast; by the next day, I had duduk and kaval tracks in my session. Very clean, and textured recordings that took my project to a higher level. Thanks Lucian!
