A 107-year-old pianist living in France releases a new recording. “In music there is everything — nature, emotion, love, revolt, dreams, it’s like a spiritual food,” she says.

“Youth is inside us…If you appreciate what’s beautiful around you, you will find a sense of wonder in it.”

Colette Maze, now 107, began playing the piano at age 5. She defied the social conventions of her era to embrace music as a profession rather than as a pastime. She has just released her sixth album.
