Nous étions souvent ensemble, à Deauville,faisions beaucoup de bêtises, les parents refaisaient le monde, ton père donnait des concerts dans la salle du casino..
Nous avions dix douze ans, que de souvenirs...

Plonplon

I knew Max as a child, a very small child: My parents were friends with his father and mother. I particularly remember one instance when there was a drinks party and Max took me to his parents'bedroom and opened with gusto the slidings mirrored doors of the wardrobes, revealing more clothes than I had never seen! We were about 6 or 7 years old. He was so proudof showing off the clothes, the shoes etc. I also knew his aunt, Bébé Ruffin who taught my mother the piano. She lived not far from my family's home, near Fontainebleau and I visited many times Bébé who was a wonderful person.
To learn Max has passed away is of great sadness to me as he was part of my childhood. All my love to his children Quetzal and Bastien: so tragic to loose your father, so young. To Clodie whom I met a LONG time ago at my father's in Paris. With love for our childhood, our shared love of his father xxx

Les deux Samson trop tôt partis

Samson François a été le musicien qui m'a ouvert à la musique classique dés l'âge de quinze ans. Par le disque car ma famille ne pratiquait et n'aimait pas "le classique, donc les concerts ...
C'est aprés avoir acquit le plus de ses vynils possibles (Chopin surtout) que Samson François nous quitta . J'avais dix huit ans et je me revois dans une grande salle de l'hôtel de mes parents, regarder un concerto de F.Chopin diffusé en hommage...
La trace resta indélébile et la collection de disques augmenta, les dvds, trop rares, les rejoignirent.
Je découvris plus tard le livre "Scarbo" de J.Picket : il essayait "d'écrire comme Samson jouait", - en moins bien- me dis-je.
Puis récemment je découvrit le livre du fils Maximlien - une seule image de lui en tête, petit garçon dans une chambre où le père et le fils avaient jouets à la main - photo tirée du livret d'un double album de disques des nocturnes de F.Chopin.
Le fils donc avait écrit !
Je plongeais avec émotion dans ce texte si pudique et respectueux fait des mille lumières allumées dans les yeux de ceux qui ont connus où simplement approchés Samson François ! et quelle profondeur des mots !
Quelle merveilleux hommage!
C'est en souhaitant remercier le fils Maximilien, que j'apprends qu'il était allé rejoindre son père .
Resterons pour ceux qui savent reconnaître les comètes , les témoignages nourrissants de leurs passages sur terre.
Merci de fond du coeur pour ce partage de frémissantes âmes généreuses.
Gérard Gentou
