Boris Vian, composer: the French Chanson

Paloma Berganza en cuarteto: Paloma Berganza, Daniel Oyarzabal, Antonio "Toño" Miguel and Noah Shaye

Boris Vian frequently turned to the chanson as a performer and composer. Together with the pianist Alain Gorager he composed songs that exude love and sorrow, like Je bois, or that sarcastically say “not to war”, as in La Java des bombes atomiques. This concert pays tribute to the relationship between Vian and the chanson, a typically French genre, with works by this multi-faceted artist and other composers including Édith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Charles Trenet.
