“Mystic and anxious Breton, always captive of an interior dream, benevolent and inattentive, having nerves of oversensitive, the innocent cheerfulness of a child, the savage decency of a secular monk and the heat of a disciple of Leon Bloy…”. For those who knew Paul Ladmirault, this portrait signed by Emile Vuillermoz, depicts him exactly”.

The work of Paul Ladmirault testifies to the fortunate and necessary fusion of the inspiration and the trade

He knew all the price of serious musical studies.
