The songs of Michel Legrand

Songs of Michel Legrand by Dominic Alldis

The versatile French composer Michel Legrand has produced an impressively broad range of music in his long and illustrious career, ranging from film soundtracks and French 'chansons' to jazz and classical music.  He is probably best known for his wonderful score for the film-musical “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg”, as well as “The Thomas Crown Affair” which introduced the hit song Windmills of My Mind
