Every New York critic raved about Melissa Errico‘s new show of the music of Michel Legrand, Amour and After. “Amour” was the title of Michel’s only Broadway musical, which earned Melissa a Tony Award nomination. She explains, “I call the show ‘Amour & After’ because that’s also the great subject of all French songs: ‘Amour’ – love! — and everything that comes afterwards.”
Accompanied by Tedd Firth on piano, Melissa’s show includes many Legrand standards, as well as the premiere of the last song that Legrand ever composed with his favourite lyric writing team, Alan and Marilyn Bergman. Devoted to the composer with whom she had a close working relationship, Melissa brings an insider’s witty stories and her unique theatrical enchantment to all of Legrand: from jazz & Hollywood classics to songs he wrote for her and even the music that influenced him, from Cole Porter to Trenet.
Melissa’s new album Legrand Affair – Deluxe Edition was recently released on Warner Music.
“One of the most moving and even thrilling cabaret shows I’ve ever seen.” – Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
