Add to Calendar 21-04-2017 21-04-2017 EST Bad Reputation. Pierre De Gaillande Sings George Brassens | 8:00pm From the 50's through the late 70's, George Brassens redefined French Chanson. He was an anarchist bard whose songs were sometimes raunchy, sometimes polemic, often poignant, and always steeped in classic French poetry. He went on to become one the most emblematic French singer of the 20th century. His songs, unlike those of his friend Jacque Brel, never became known outside of France, mostly because of the literary aspect of his lyrics. Franco-American singer and composer Pierre de Gaillande has translated a number of Brassenssongs. He has stuck to the rhyming scheme and verse length of the original songs, thus matching the melodies perfectly. He has re-arranged the music with a cinematic sensibility - Best way to describe the record would be to compare it to a perfect movie adaptation of a book classic. Think Stanley Kubrick or Raoul Ruiz. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=223689 Barbès< Barbès< false DD-MM-YYYY aPCgobqrazCObPvIAmjO26779
