Régis Penet has always drawn with musical accompaniment. He listened to a lot of Beethoven, less now because Beethoven lends itself rather poorly to distracted or partial listening. The biography of Beethoven by Jean and Brigitte Massin and listening to the Pastorale and the Concerto l’Empereur were the starting points for his Beethoven project. On May 18, 2021, pianist George Lepauw and cartoonist Régis Penet shared a moment of music and drawing during an event organized by the publishing house La Boîte à Bulles in partnership with the Association Beethoven France, on the occasion of the release of Régis Penet’s album, “Beethoven, the price of freedom”. The ABF also had the chance to take part in the proofreading of the original project before publication, and in the creation of the Deezer playlist associated with the book. In October 2021, Régis Penet was interviewed by Diane Kolin.
