Jane Birkin sings Serge Gainsbourg via JapanThe English actress and singer Jane Birkin makes a rare London appearance singing the songs of her late partner Serge Gainsbourg. Initially scheduled for last October, this special concert at Cadogan Hall is a reinterpretation of the late Gainsbourg's repertoire performed by his muse with a group of four talented Japanese musicians with whom Birkin first performed in Japan in 2011 soon after the tragic tsunami that shocked the world. Featuring classic Gainsbourg songs such as Requiem Pour Un Con, Comic Strip, Amour Des Feintes and Do Di Dah, this brilliant concert - both poignant and celebratory - comes alive with the musical versatility of the Japanese quartet, pays homage to one of music's most iconic figures and showcases the remarkable, revelatory and timeless talent that is the effortlessly gamine Birkin, who sings entirely in French and charms in buckets.

 

About Cadogan Hall

Cadogan Hall opened its doors on 18th June 2004 with a surprising lack of fanfare but is making up for that with a year of 10th anniversary celebrations in 2014. The former Church of Christ Scientist is home to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the least elitist of London's major orchestras. More about Cadogan Hall
