AMBASSADOR ADRIEN MEISCH The combination of Diplomacy and music has always been a "leitmotiv" in the career of Adrien Meisch. A lover of music from his childhood, he never missed a chance to continue his musical studies. Parallel to his Ph.D diplomas in law (Paris) and history (Oxfortd), Ambassador Meisch studied with Walter Gieseking in Germany, Erwin Emmerich in New York, Lev Oborin in Moscow and Leon Fleisher in Baltimore. During his long career as Ambassador for his country, Luxembourg, Adrien Meisch used his piano playing to open doors and to facilitate contacts throughout the world. He was twice Ambassador to Moscow -- once under Brezhnev to the Soviet Union and later under Yeltsin and Putin to Russia and the Confederation of Independent States. During his postings in Moscow, he played with David Oistrakh, Mstislav Rostrpovich, the Borodin Quartet and the Chamber Orchestra of Moscow. He played many times in the Kremlin for Prime Minister Primakov. While Ambassador to the United States and Germany, he played at the White House and for the President and Chancellor of Germany. He has been on nation-wide television in Germany, Russia, the United States, and France. Today, Ambassador Meisch is using his considerable diplomatic and musical skills to help him discover, explore, and advance new aspects of the universe, namely in science, cosmology and the environment.
