Jean Michel Jarre awarded Doctor Honoris Causa by the Russian Academy of Sciences

Following the steps of Margaret Thatcher, Jacques-Yves Cousteau and a few others, french musician Jean Michel Jarre was decorated «for his outstanding contribution to the promotion of music as a culture and his commitment to protecting the environment ».
The official ceremony took place in an amphitheater at the Moscow Faculty of Sciences. The Rector bestowed the honor and the uniform upon Jean Michel Jarre before students and members of the russian press and TV. A short tribute concert was then played by the university orchestra and choir.

The distinction was granted to Jean Michel Jarre during his stay in Russia, where he is to perform two concerts at the Kremlin Palace, and another one in St. Petersburg.

Muchas felicidades querido MAESTRO.
Creo que es un galardón mas que merecido.Tu campaña en la lucha por salvar el medio ambiente es algo que todos teniamos que agradecerte, ya que en ello reside el futuro de este nuestro planeta.
El próximo premio debería de ser el Premio Principe de Asturias.

congratulations Jean Michel!
Very much deserved for all your hard work over the years.


For me you're a pioneer and inspirator on so many fronts.

I know there are many more talented people who began using electronic instruments in 70's like Herbie Hancock and Joe Zawinul to name a few, but they didn't take it to the level you've done!

again BRAVO!

Dear Jean Michel,

In Budapest, the instrument played by Norbert Pavel, the 'Hang'; its name means simply 'voice' in Hungarian.
The arena there really was too big but so many people wanted to hear you that it was kind of necessary... You really should have to cme more often to Budapest :-)
Thank you very much for your fascinating music, it makes me feel so alive.

Wish you all the best from Budapest.
