By Dörte Schmidt

Christoph Willibald Gluck komponierte in den 70er Jahren des 18. Jahrhunderts ein quickly hundert Jahre altes Libretto nahezu unverändert.

Nos émotions, nos joies, nos larmes, nos plaisirs, nos déprimes, nos exaltations et, finalement, nos vies entières sont écrites en chansons.

Et aucun francophone n'échappe à cet héritage touffu, proliférant, inépuisable. Voici pourquoi explorer l. a. chanson française est explorer notre will pay, son âme, sa mémoire et ses passions.
Voici pourquoi explorer l. a. chanson française consiste à rencontrer d'immenses artistes et à ouvrir des coffres à merveilles. Voici pourquoi explorer los angeles chanson française consiste aussi à ne pas toujours comprendre les mystères du succès et de l. a. postérité.

Une traversée hédoniste, mélancolique, gourmande et parfois polémique pour saisir d'un même regard les grands maîtres et les petits génies, les légendes chéries et les vérités contestées, les monuments historiques et les splendeurs ignorées."
