Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this new release, Beatrice Fontaine sings and recites the songs of Prevert and Kosma with tenderness and accuracy. An album for the young and old alike, these words twist and waltz with the melody (which has been majestically arranged for the accordion) beautifully juxtaposing the poems with the music. Beatrice Fontaine reminds us that these songs and poems are part of our immaterial heritage. Beatrice writes: “Jacques Prevert and Joseph Kosma have enchanted my childish spirit. At school, there were rules of grammar and calculation. With Jacques and Joseph, I was able to twist the neck to the rules! I regale again and again games of notes, words and processions, surreal images, decadent harmonies, and other exquisite melodic bodies. Read more House, eternity, baby, rain, dazzling, musketeer, stars… these words have forever given me sounds and shattering colors. Do you see them? Do you hear them? Prevert, Kosma… and you! Here it is!” Read less
