Interviews with Pierre-François Dub-Attenti & Christophe Zerbini

Hortus Editions (2 volumes)

Only in French

This book, the result of 7 years of work and collaboration with Daniel Roth, was born in the family atmosphere of the organ loft of Saint-Sulpice. In a nod to Plein jeu, in which Claude Duscheneau interviewed Michel Chapuis, Pierre-François Dub-Attenti and Christophe Zerbini chose the form of the interview to make Daniel Roth better known and share his vocation with their readers.
