French pianist and composer Julien Gelas brings his music to Chinese audience again. After the recent tour of Qingdao, Shandong province, Gelas will perform in Beijing from Jan 13 to 16.

Combining different genres, including classic music, blues, rock-and-roll and pop, Gelas has created his own unique melodies. The piano keys under his fingers often create an energetic and poetic music wonderland.

The performance in Beijing will feature a series of his freestyle works, such as L'éclaircie, La Fuite and Station Liberty.

Born into a family of artists, Gelas started learning music at 5 and began studying classic music at 11. He has also cooperated on many plays, television shows and films as a drama director. He once wrote music for singers in La voix de la France (French version of The Voice).

His music has impressed Chinese composer Dong Dongdong.

"Gelas' poetic performance reminds me of fragrant lavenders and bright sun flowers in South France. It is full of energy, brightness and vigor," Dong said.

So far, Gelas has given performed in France, Italy, Belgium and Germany.
