Birkin/Gainsbourg - Le Symphnique LP
Birkin Gainsbourg Le Symphonique Jane Birkin has often dressed and undressed the works of Serge, the "legendary poet" whose songs she has been singing since the first album he composed for her, Serge Gainsbourg/Jane Birkin, released in 1969. Separation and even death made no difference: Jane wears the songs of her partner in music and life, whether they were created when they lived together or when the strength of their connection persisted beyond all conflict. "It is a privilege that one of the greatest French writers wrote for me from the age of 20 to 45. In a way it never stopped. It''s a strange situation. What can I do for him now, even though it''s too late! At least I can wear him, take him with me. Say his words! ". After Arabesque, which she made with the Algerian violinist Djamel Benyelles in 2002, and Via Japan, created ten years later with Japanese musicians, here is Birkin/Gainsbourg, Le Symphonique.
