Jane Birkin To Serenade Melbourne Audiences
After being snapped up for next year's Adelaide Festival, Jane Birkin has announced a Melbourne date.
Birkin, one of the most celebrate and iconic women in musical history, will be coming to Australia shores to sing the songs of the legendary French singer/songwriter Serge Gainsbourg.
Together they produced six albums and continued to collaborate professionally long after their relationship ended in 1980. In a powerful homage to her partner and mentor, the style icon presents a special concert of Gainsbourg’s music to mark 20 years since his death. Birkin will perform with a group comprising some of Japan’s finest musicians including pianist and composer Nobuyuki Nakajima, known for both his masterful piano and his work arranging ensembles; jazz-influenced drummer Tsuotmu Kurihara; violinist Asuka Maret; and brass player Shuishiro Sakaguchi.
Jane Birkin will play the Melbourne Recital Centre on Sunday March 18.
