For Belgian Ambassador Pierre Clement Dubuisson, chamber music and diplomacy have gone hand in hand throughout his career. Whether stationed in Strasbourg, Brussels or Kyiv – as he has been for the last three years, Dubuisson has pursued his musical interests as a bassoonist and a flautist.
54-year-old Dubuisson said that his morning routine of practicing the bassoon is “good for the respiratory system.” Since he’s a person who can get by on little sleep, early morning practice sessions fit in well in his busy schedule.
“I’m very energetic, in good condition. On family outings in the mountains, I’m the first one to get to the top,” he said.
