Michel Legrand Remembered: Keep the Music Playing

Royal Festival Hall, London

20 September 2019

Originally, this evening with Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra at London’s Southbank Centre was intended to be performed with modern jazz legend Michel Legrand. Sadly, the three-time Oscar and five-time Grammy Award winner passed away earlier this year and so the event has been aptly refashioned into a tribute. The Orchestra, led by pianist and Artistic Director James Pearson and several special guests, including multiple Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman, are set to deliver an unforgettable performance dedicated to Legrand. It will be an evening filled with jazz and film score classics, implemented to honour the work of one of modern jazz’s most prolific pianists, composers and conductors.

"We are so happy that artists are lining up to pay tribute to Michel in this way. Most of them have their own personal connections to him and will be choosing which songs they will perform. This is a fitting way to pay tribute and we know it will be an unforgettable evening for artists and audiences alike."
