Les Belles Chansons Françaises
Piaf, Brel, Trenet, Aznavour and more
From the passionate ballads of Edith Piaf, the scandalous lyrics of Serge Gainsbourg, the desperate emotion of Jacques Brel and the charm and wit of Yves Montand and Charles Trenet, France has produced some of the finest songs ever written. In this recreation of the masters of French chanson, Bremner goes on a musical odyssey through the bars and cafés of Paris.
