Music&Arts Networks, a company run by François Dru and Pierre-Jean Tribot, has announced the creation of 21 Music, a new 100 % digital label. « The music market is evolving: we must anticipate changes and look ahead. 21 Music is a flexible and borderless label, from Classical to Electro and Contemporary music », the label says.

The first release is Jean-Pascal Beintus’s original score written for the Doctor/TV star Michel Cymes and his new Hippocrate aux enfers documentary (France Télévision). The 11 tracks are performed by the finest French musicians such as Renaud Capuçon and Guillaume Chilemme (violins), Adrien La Marca (viola), Edgar Moreau (cello), Paul Meyer (clarinet) and the pianist Jérôme Ducros.

Jean-Pascal Beintus was born in Toulouse in 1966. He grew up in Nice and started his musical education at the local Conservatoire (Double bass, piano and composition). Later, he studied at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique in Paris and Lyon.

His music was performed by Orchestre national de Lyon, Berliner Philharmoniker, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Hallé Orchestra Manchester, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and Russian National Orchestra.

Releases of 21 Music can be downloaded or streamed. More information is available here:
