Piaf And Brel: The Impossible Concert

 

Review


As the title suggests, French chanteuse Edith Piaf and Belgian crooner Jacques Brel never sang together during their lifetimes. Despite this fact, singer Melanie Gall decides to pair the songs of these two iconic singers together to create a charming, "impossible concert." She traces stories from both of their lives, from Brel’s leap-of-faith move to Paris to Piaf’s very public heartbreak after her lover died in a plane crash. Gall, a classically trained opera singer, has a lovely and powerful voice. Her enthusiasm for the material is clear—she is consistently brimming with energy. If you’re a fan of classic French tunes, you’ll certainly enjoy this wonderful little concert.  —Connor Meeker
