Francis Lai story
Francis Lai Orchestra - Grand Rex


Program Info:
A unique evening to rediscover the greatest masterpieces of the composer of Un Homme et Une Femme: FRANCIS LAI… STORY

Nicknamed by the Americans “the aristocrat of melody”, Francis Lai accompanied Edith Piaf or Mireille Mathieu, before to become the official composer of Claude Lelouch and great directors such as Terence Young, Henri Verneuil, Dino Risi…

We can no longer count the famous artists who will have sung it: Elton John, Petula Clark, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Hallyday, Serge Reggiani, Charles Aznavour, Yves Montand, Nana Mouskouri, Françoise Hardy, nor the number of awards among which his triumph in Hollywood and the Oscar for best film music for Love Story and before that, at the Cannes festival for Un Homme et Une Femme , crowned with a gold palm.

This exceptional concert, by the Francis Lai Orchestra, invites you to discover the world of Francis Lai who composed the music for more than 100 films and more than 600 songs.
The ambassador of a certain French romanticism who despite an impressive track record of distinctions and awards remained legendary humble while he held the record for records sold abroad for a French composer.
