A corner in heaven
Tribute to Georges Brassens
Creation March 2005
Back to beginnings for Patrice Bourgeon who,
like many singers of his generation, learnt his first guitar chords
on song scores from this kindly master
An opportunity for
Patrice to pay his tribute in a recent composition:
But it was heartbreaking to have to choose just 25 songs from Brassens oeuvre, because
all his songs are great, theres nothing to throw out, you would need it all on that desert island...
Then came the orchestration work requiring respect and sobriety, whilst introducing the Compagnie des Zinc musicians personal musicality, but it was fascinating work.
And so you have it, 1 ½ hours of a show where the four players perform with obvious pleasure in the intimate atmosphere created by Ludovic Bourdais cordial lighting. A pleasure which is shared by the audience who happily join in Uncle Georges refrains
