Rising Star: Anaïs Gaudemard Harpist

Born: Lyons, France

Carrer highlights: It's always moving to win awards and be rewarded for your efforts, but it was recording my first album of harp concertos that helped move my career along. Still, the best is yet to come.

Musical hero: Composer Nadia Boulanger, because of the breadth of her knowledge and the openness of her mind. She was an extraordinary pedagogue , and had a different approach for every student.

Dream concert: A "carte blanche" concert that I would share with artists I admire: musicians, dancers, writer and actors. Perhaps in the ancient theatre of Taormina in Sicily.
