About

Michel Legrand ranks amongst the greats of film composing through a distinguished career that spans half-a-century and over 200 films. His attributes range from singer, jazz- pianist, songwriter to conductor, actor, screenwriter and film director - so far he received 3 Oscars and 5 Grammys.
 
Not many composers can claim to have written for both Edith Piaf and James Bond – and it’s precisely this fusion of European romance and Hollywood dynamism that has made Legrand one of the soundtrack world’s most lauded names. He has worked with many of the greatest artists of the 20th century including Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, Barbra Streisand, Edith Piaf, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles. He collaborated with French Nouvelle Vague directors Jean-Luc Godard and Claude Chabrol as well as Hollywood magnitudes Clint Eastwood and Orson Welles.
 
Legrand has won as much respect in the States as he has in Europe and his creativity and ambition appear to know no bounds. On this DVD the living legend conducts and plays his most famous film music, jazz tunes and chansons – Yentl, The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, The Three Musketeers, Summer Of 42, Young Girls Of Rochefort, Never Say Never Again, Dingo, Edith, Ray's Blues, Rupture…
