ST BARTH Music FESTIVAL

FROM ARLEN TO STRAVINSKY


he second week of the 2006 St
Barth Music Festival moved from
the dance part of the program to
the classical music section, or the heart of
the event. Things got off to a rousing start
on Wednesday, January 11, with a Pops
concert, led by world-famous trumpet
player, Rolf Smedvig, a festival regular.
The concert began with the local choir, La
Chorale de Bons Choeurs, led by Charles
Darden, singing "Over The Rainbow,"
written by Harold Arlen for the "Wizard
of Oz" film score, followed by a hand-
clapping Negro Spiritual, In Dat Great Gittin'
Up Mornin'. Opera singer Jane Thorgren, who
later sang a solo from "The Merry Widow," as
well as "The Stars and The Moon," and "You'll
Never Know," joined the chorus.
The instrumental portion of the concert was
primarily upbeat with numbers ranging from
"Summertime," and "My Man's Gone Now"
from Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess," to
"Tonight" from "West Side Story," and Scott
Jopin's "Paragon Rag." In addition to Smed-
vig's pyrotechnics on the trumpet, there were
also outstanding solos by Gregory Miller on
French horn, and Jon Manasse on clarinet, not
to mention percussion by Ted Atkatz, referred
to as "Boom Boom" by Smedvig, who also
said "We love you St Barth, Thank you St
Barth," before launching into the Joplin rag that
closed the first half 'f Pi i, IC n i I
Toward the end of the second half, Smed-
vig'sl0-piece pops band really let loose with
two Duke Ellington classics, "Jungle Nights in
Harlem," and "It Don't Mean A Thing If It
Ain't Got That Swing," with the audience
jumping its feet begging for more. Three
encores ensued: "Hello Dolly," followed by a
foot-stomping rendition of "When The Saints
Come Marching In," and finally "Amazing
Grace," a i..i i-iI. quieter finale that Smedvig


dedicated to world piece.
On Sunday, January 15, the mood was very dif-
ferent for a more serious concert labeled cham-
ber music. While some outstanding chamber
musicians performed (including Josh Gindele
of the Miro Quartet), the program was a mixed
bag, including a sonata for French horn with
soloist Eric Ruske, and Phillip Bush on piano
(who will perform a recital on January 24). One
of the world's highly acclaimed French horn
players, Ruske has extended the instrument's
repertory, playing music originally intended for
clarinet or flute, for example. Bush was also
featured on a Joaquin Turina piano quartet,
with three string players who did an admirable
job considering that the morning rehearsal was
the first time the quartet had every played
together, one of the unusual features of this par-
ticular festival.
The second half of the program was an hour-
long version of Stravinksy's "L'histoire du
soldat," with American actor, Leonard Nimoy,
reading the roles of both the solider and the
devil, accompanied by a seven-member cham-
ber orchestra and his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy.
Mr. Nimoy, who attends the festival almost
every year, made his debut performance here
a few year's ago as the narrator in "Peter and
the Wolf." He is a compelling narrator,
although some of the French-speaking people
in the audience admitted they had trouble fol-
lowing along.
The varied program of the St Barth Music Fes-
tival makes it all the more interesting, with an
.N! ii.''-.-,i\ lihi;!i-oes ambiance. But on nights
like the Pops concert, there are no words or
images that can capture the sounds and the
emotions that these talented musicians share
with the audience. Many of them come back
year after year, sharing what they've got with
the island. And as they say in "Hello Dolly:"
it's so nice to have you back where you belong.

PEOPLE WATCH A column about islanders
by Ellen Lampert-Greaux

Tenor Saxophonist John Ellis


Tenor saxophonist John Ellis
combines the sophistication of
the Big Apple with the jazz tra-
ditions of the Big Easy, blending the
musical influences he discovered by
moving from his native North Caroli-
na, first to New Orleans, then to New
York, by way if touring around the
world. His quartet, featuring Jason
Marsalis on percussion, Roland
Guerin on bass, Aaron Parks on piano,
and of course Ellis on tenor sax,
appears on Wednesday, January 25, as
the closing event in the 2006 St Barth
Music Festival.*
Having studied at the North Carolina
School of the Arts, and the New
School in New York City, the 31-year
old Ellis now performs with his own
quartet, as a member of the Charlie
Hunter Trio, or as a sideman with
some of the top names in contempo-
rary jazz. In Saint Barth, he will play
primarily his own music, which can
be heard on his latest album, "One
Foot In The Swamp," released last
year by HYENA Records, as well as
on his website,
wwII. i.'hr.11 .,,r'id, com, where
songs recorded live at Yoshi's, a jazz
club in San Francisco, are available
for listening or can be downloaded as
MP3 files. "Musically l'c.lkihi'. my
roots are in New Orleans," says Ellis,
who discovered jazz when he moved
there in 1993. "I was not bor there
but spent a lot of time there at a form-
ative stage in my life. Music, by defi-
nition, is very contextual, and what I
heard in New Orleans influenced me
very directly." In New Orleans, Ellis
played with famous and lesser-known


musicians, while crafting his own
style. He was also exposed to the
down home sounds of Zydeco. "I
would hear it casually, the sound is in
the air, but it's a more indirect influ-
ence."
Ellis eventually moved to New York,
where his brother was living. "We
grew up together in a very small
place," he says. He had also met and
played with New York musicians
while living in New Orleans and felt
that he should "go for it." He did and
found New York to be "an amazing
experience. There is no place like it,


and it's a great place to learn from
people of all cultures. It's an incredi-
ble resource." Part of the next wave
in American jazz, Ellis first played in
Saint Barth a few years ago, with the
Jason Marsalis band, also during the
winter music festival. "I am looking
forward to coming back," he says.
"It's a magical place." Like Ellis and
his music, the island combines
sophistication and country charm.
When the rooster crows at the break
of dawn, he should feel right at home.

research were cultivated
and developed in the name
of a profound culture of '
beauty. This, essentially, is
Scavia's story.

unique hand crafting.
Today, just as 80 years ago,
Scavia jewelry is made by
hand, thus giving each jewel
a special added value that
makes it truly unique.

Antoine Questel Returns

to Saint-Barth to Prepare for the 2006 Season


Antoine "dressed"
by Sooruz
On December 27, two days
after he returned from the
World Championships in
Melbourne, Antoine got
some good news: the sports
clothing company, Sooruz,
with whom negotiations
had begun during the nauti-
cal salon in Paris in early
December, had decided to
'sponsor' Antoine, who
will compete wearing their
clothes and put their logo
on his sails. Known
throughout the world of
sailing and windsurfing,


Antoine in the nautical
salon in Paris in early
December
Sooruz especially wants
Antoine to be its ambassa-
dor in the West Indies.

A busy schedule
for 2006
Just like the 2005 season,
that of 2006 will also be
quite busy for Antoine who
will compete in all French,
European, and World cham-
pionship and tournament
events for Slalom 42. His
goal for the season? To fin-
ish among the top 20 world-
wide, and as one of the top
three in the French champi-
onships.
To contact Antoine via
e-mail: antoinequestel@
hotmail.com; By telephone :
06.90.75.14.92
or 06.71.15.07.24.
Website:
www.antoinequestel.com


One of the top three
French senior
windsurfing cham-
pions, Antoine Questel has
come back to his native
Saint Barth for two
months, in preparation for
the 2006 season. Of
course, it is too cold in
France to continue training
at the Fun Board center at
the National Sailing
School in Quiberon, where
our local champion has
spent the past two years.
Antoine is taking advan-
tage of this break by train-
ing as much as possible in
his favorite spot, the
lagoon at Grand Cul de
Sac. Another goal the


champion has set for him-
self is to gain four kilos
(8.8 pounds): "the boards
are such today that at 82
kilos (180 pounds), I'm
not heavy enough. To
obtain optimum results, I
should weigh 86 kilos
(189.2 pounds)," he says.
To reach his desired
weight, Antoine has start-
ed a high-octane weight-
lifting program that should
allow him to gain the eight
pounds of muscle he feels
he needs. During his stay
in Saint-Barth, Antoine
will also seek sponsors to
balance his budget for the
2006 season; a budget of
just over 41,000 euros.


FORMULA WINDSURFING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
ANTOINE QUESTEL FINISHES 29TH
OF 90 COMPETITORS


he Formula Windsurf-
ing World Champi-
onships took place from
December 12 -17 in Mel-
bourne, Australia. Antoine
Questel, who finished
among the top three French
seniors, competed with the
French national team. Sev-
en races were disputed on
slightly rough waters, with
winds between seven and
35 knots. Two races were
held on the first day of the
competition, at the end of
which Antoine finished in
34th place. As the competi-
tion concluded, he finished
in 29th place out of a total
of 90 competitors. He fin-


ished in fifth place among
the overall French contin-
gent. Antoine Albeau, also
a member of the French
National team, won the
2005 World Champi-
onships. Julien Quentel,
from Saint Martin, also had
a great season on the
national and international
level, finishing in 7th place.
As for Antoine Questel, he
says "I am very happy with
my results in 2005 because
I met my personal goals.
And my classification in
the championships allows
me to maintain my status
for the next two years."







A Touch of Sweden:

Cecilia Wikstrom Visits Saint Barth


Photo: (left to right) Maj Dufau, Denis Dufau, Nils
Dufau, Cecilia Wikstrom, Jean Magras, and in front,
Johannes Wikstrdm.


aint Barth had a dis-
tinguished visitor
from Sweden last
week when Cecilia Wik-
strom visited the island
with her eight year-old son,
Johannes (her other son,
Theodore, could not take
off from school). Wikstrom
is the only woman in Swe-
den who is both a member
of the national parliament
(Liberal Party) and an
ordained priest: and not just
any priest, she is the Canon
of the Cathedral of Upp-
sala, a city close to Stock-
holm in central Sweden.
This Lutheran Cathedral is
actually the largest church
building in Scandinavia,
and was built from 1260
through 1435.
In Parliament, Wikstrom
currently serves on the
Committee for Culture and
the Committee for Foreign
Affairs, and is deeply
involved in international
affairs, in particular human
rights, women's rights and
Middle Eastern affairs. She
has written an acclaimed
book on crisis manage-
ment, "When Life Falls
Apart," which draws on her
experiences as a priest.
Wikstrom wrote two opin-


ion pieces for the Interna-
tional Herald Tribune in
2005: "Persecution of the
Christians," on the plight of
Iraq's Christian minority,"
and "Europe Fails to Curb
Terrorism," on terrorist net-
works in Europe."
In Saint Barth, Wikstrom
was pleased to meet fellow
Swede, Maj Dufau, and
have the chance to speak
her native language with
Maj and her son Nils. She
was also "happy and sur-
prised that the people of
the island know about its
Swedish past and honor
it." Wikstrom's connection
to Saint Barth is that she is
the minister for the family
of Thomas Fischer, a
Swedish publisher who has
a house on the island.
While here, Wikstrom vis-
ited two local bars: Le
Select and La Pigeoniere,
where her photo was taken
with Jean Magras and
Denis Dufau, two former
presidents Of ASBAS, the
island's Swedish friendship
association. Both establish-
ments also have photos of
the current Swedish king :
"I'll tell him I saw his pho-
to on the wall," joked
Wikstrom.

Andy Warhol
was an animal lover!
Andy Warhol was an animal lover, as his many
,ifft-i 'iirift portraits of cats and dogs clearly
attest. However, according to biographer
David Bourdon, Vanishing Animals, produced
in the 1980s, demonstrated Warhol's growing
awareness and concern for the more jeopard-
ized members of the animal kingdom. A truly
unique collaboration of contemporary art and
science showing us less-known endangered
species from around the world, Warhol points
out the zoology of the species, difficurics
brought upon by varying environmental
problems. Through January 25 at Me.di.um

Weather Report
for December: Drier and
Hotter than Usual

Every month we present a recap of the
local weather, written by Ren6 Fury, direc-
tor of the French weather service's local
bureau, Espace M6teo Caraibes.
Rain
1.3" (33 mm) made for a
very dry month, close to the
record low of .91" (23mm)
in 1963.
Yearly precipitation:
46.10" (1,171 mm) of rain, putting 2005
in the top 20% of rainy years, in spite of the
last two months of the year, which were dry.

cAAo Temperature
o The average high was
/ o00 85.460F (29.070C), or one
S degree higher than usual.
The average low for the
month was 75.31F
(24.06C), also higher than the habitual aver-
age low of 74.12F (23.4C). The lowest tem-
perature of the month was 72.5F (22.5C) on
December 18, which was higher the usual low-
est temperature (in other words, the tempera-
ture normally dips lower than this in Decem-
ber). The highest temperature of the month,
88.34F (31.3C) on December 13, was also
on the high side. The ocean temperature hovers
close to 80.60F (27C) and should remain
close to that level for the winter season.

Humidity
Average of 5-'. minimum to, i-'. maximum.
Air drier than usual.

Winds
SAlmost exclusively North-
west and very present, with
gusts up to 55 miles/hour on
December 5 and 8.

Seasonal forecasts for February, March and
April predict normal conditions as far as rain
and temperatures are concerned, compared to
Europe where it seems that winter will be cold-
er than usual.

Last but not least, the predictions for the hurri-
cane season are rather pessimistic. But the sea-
son is still a long way off and the variables and
statistical ji iici i. d are not very precise.

has altered the traffic patterns for
who has the right-of-way. Now,
vehicles already engaged in the traf-

ASHTRAYS PROVIDED
BY SUBPROTECT
Founded in 1996, SubProtect is a non-
profit organization dedicated to the pro-
tection of the environment and the
I underwater sea beds. Two year ago,
. they began their operation "Ashtrays
on the Beaches." The idea is to provide
the installation of cans-as-ashtrays at
the entrance to the beaches so that
Ssmokers can use the cans to collect
their cigarette butts. Fourteen of the
island's twenty-two beaches will be
soon outfitted.

Advertorial

The Jaquet Droz signature is truly majestic

and consists of five essential distinctions


ierre Jaquet
Droz was a mas-
ter of time in the
Age of Enlightenment
as well as a mechani-
cal genius: a precursor
of the watch as jewel-
ry, and an exceptional-
ly sensitive illustrator
of dreams and poetry.
Reviving his humanist
and scientific spirit
was a challenge that
Swiss watchmaker
Jaquet Droz has met
with the success of its
contemporary collec-
tions.
As a creator of watch-
es, clocks and automatons imbued
with a unanimously recognized ele-
gance and refinement, Pierre Jaquet
Droz was one of the most noted
craftsmen of his time. By effective-
ly masking the phenomenal com-
plexity of the mecha-
nisms and movements
needed to run his mod-
els, which represented
genuine works of art, he
became an unrivaled
master of animated time-
pieces: singing birds,
fountains and musical
watches. He was also the
brilliant designer of
automatons. In particu-


lar, three of his unforgettably life-
like androidss," or automatons in
human form, created a sensation
and were to find their way around
the world: the Musician, the
Draughtsman and the Writer.


An entrepreneur in the
true sense of the word,
Jaquet Droz was invited
to court in Europe, Rus-
sia, and even in China's
Forbidden City. He
assembled a team made
up of the best clock-
makers, chiming mecha-
nism specialists,
mechanics, enamellers,
and stone-setters that
were to be found. He
opened three factories, in
La Chaux-de-Fonds
(1738), London (1774)
and Geneva (1784), the
latter being the first
watch-making workshop
to be set up within the walls of the
town. He extended his distribution
network and organized tours around
the world to present his automatons.
Today, the Swiss company, Jaquet
Droz, is proud to perpetuate the
spirit of this exceptional
watchmaker. Its time-
pieces are distinguished
by their aesthetic refine-
ment and embody a
meticulous attention to
detail and exquisite
craftsmanship. Through
its mastery of elegance,
Jaquet Droz adds a res-
olutely poetic touch to
time itself.

Welcome to the World of Tradewind Aviation

In keeping with its many VIP vis-
itors, Saint Barth now has a new
airline to help whisk them to the
island in style. Tradewind Aviation
han been authnrized since March 21.

pick up on bad weather. "We made a
vow to only fly planes that we would
let our own families fly in," explains
David Zara, vice-pr6sident and prin-
cipal of the company, during a visit
to Saint-Barth. All of the flights have
two pilots aboard, and all the pilots
hold an ATP (airline transport pilot)
license. They also train regularly on
flight simulators to keep their skills
sharp. In the United States,
Tradewind flies charters and
launched the Nantucket Shutle, a

vemences of a reg-

The idea to fly to
Saint Barth was instigated by clients
of the company who asked if
Tradewind could also serve the
Caribbean. "So that's what we did,"
says Zara, who admits that the
French Civil Aviation regulations are
quite tough, but proved to be "just
and fair," as was Mayor Bruno
Magras who welcomed them warm-
ly. Today the company operates
along the same lines as other region-
al airlines and charter companies,
offering charter flights -lii.'ugh..'ul

Saint-Barth can be as short as 4u
minutes aboard a Pilatus or about
one hour with a Cessna Grand Cara-
van. One can save quite a bit of time,
and as company president and prin-
cipal Eric Zipkin hopes, "this will
allow us to attract new clients who
would like to spend the weekend in
Saint Barth!"

Tradewind Aviation ,il be available
