L’Oreille musicale: Edith Piaf

Thursday 31 January 2013 18:00-19:00

As 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Edith Piaf, we revisit her life and career, from the streets of Paris to international success and the many difficulties of her personal life: her childhood, illness, and tragic love affair with Marcel Cerdan…

Rediscover Piaf’s most famous songs (La vie en rose, Padam, Millord, L’Hymne à l’amour…) and how she influenced artists such as Charles Aznavour, Juliette and many others.
