Art & Culture

As part of a new initiative, Schneider Brothers Ltd. promotes Art & Culture by supporting artists worldwide such as Valérie Gaillard and Matthieu Boré, two accomplished successful musicians and performers, and Espérance Pham Thai Lan, brilliant actress and filmmaker.



Born into show business!

Daughter of André Gaillard, the famous comedian from the duo "Les Frères Ennemis, and Simone Conein Gaillard, mime-artist and former partner of Marcel Marceau, Valérie Gaillard is a classically trained singer, mime and actress.

From the age of 9, she attended the stages of France and abroad in various shows. With her leaning for musicals of Broadway and films, she offers us a colored show with international references.

With her mime language very "Chaplinesque" and her light coloratura soprano voice, this artist gives a distinct personality.

Today she presents her latest creation: "MOVIE SHOW!" the 1000 references to film musics!

French pianist, jazz vocalist and songwriter, Matthieu Boré grew up surrounded by music and the arts, going as far back as an opera singing great grand-father. At age 7, Bore took his first piano lessons, and sang in various punk and trip hop outfits during the 1990s, before pursuing his love of vintage jazz music. In early 2000, the young pianist started playing the Parisian jazz club circuit and a year later, released an entire album of Fats Domino covers. In keeping with his fascination for 1950s R&B and R&B music, he issued Doo Wop (2003) and Sometimes on My Own (2007), the latter inspired by his idols Irvin Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael and Gershwin. 2009 saw the release of FriZZante!, an album featuring a mixture of covers and Boré originals, with full orchestra.

Matthieu Boré has performed many concerts, including ones at the Festivals of Montreal and Jarasum in Korea, the New Morning and the Olympia. In 2011 he released a live album recorded at the Duc des Lombards. Roots, Matthieu's latest studio album, is a surprising cocktail -- a strong dose of New Orleans funk, with all its nonchalance, predilection for acoustic sounds and syncopated grooves.

Discover his new album 'Naked Song' that was released last September!
