About Michel Legrand Remembered

With James Pearson at the helm, the Orchestra is joined by celebrated songstress Alison Moyet, multiple Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman, rising jazz star Richard Hadfield, renowned classical violinist Tasmin Little, Michel Legrand collaborator and Broadway star Melissa Errico and Michel Legrand's son, singer Benjamin Legrand.

A three-time Oscar and five-time Grammy Award winner, Legrand’s unique ear for a memorable tune and his towering skills as a jazz pianist and composer are honoured in powerful arrangements of some of his greatest hits, including 'The Windmills of Your Mind', 'Ray Blues', 'Summer of 42', 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg', 'Dingo Rock', 'How Do You Keep the Music Playing' and 'Yentl'.

Following Legrand’s death in January, this concert, which was to have been a celebration of his international standing as a jazz musician, now becomes a tribute to his everlasting impact on 20th century music – unforgettable melodies imprinted on the history of jazz, song, and film music.
