* 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…
