Marcel Falize


marcel-1Percussion/kettledrum

Already at the age of ten Marcel won his first solo competition as a drummer. From then onwards it was his greatest wish to travel the whole world with an orchestra! He is the heartbeat of the orchestra with his many instruments. He sometimes plays five of these at the same time. And that is an incredibly important function, like the one inside one’s body. The drummer follows the conductor to a millisecond, and I don’t even have to turn round to look at Marcel to know that he is doing it better than anyone else can.

What I do know as well, though, is that he flirts with the ladies in the audience from time to time when I am not looking!
