Francis Lai - Francis Lai: The Essential Film Music Collection

An ultimate performance of Francis Lai’s greatest works, conducted by the composer himself, this album represents a retrospective snap-shot of Lai’s varied and hugely successful film music career.

Hailing from the smoky jazz clubs of Marseilles and working with the legendary Edith Piaf at the height of her fame as accompanist and composer, Lai has successfully translated the easy listening sound of the 60s into film scores. His light and lyrical music for films is brimming with romanticism, sombre beauty and charm.

Perhaps best known for his 1970, Oscar Winning score for Love Story and his 1965 breakthrough score for Claude Lelouch’s cult French movie, Un homme et une femme (A Man and A Woman), this immensely talented French accordionist and composer has succeeded in creating an instantly recognisable sound that defines an era.
