POETRY AND SONGS
ALAIN ROBERT | ST-HUBERT,QUÉBEC | 11/09/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"JACQUES PRÉVERT was a famous scriptwriter in the thirties and forties and also a poet.This cd is YVES MONTAND'S 1962 tribute to the man who helped him gained stardom in FRANCE.LES FEUILLES MORTES that YVES had first recorded in the forties has become world famous ,ever since FRANK SINATRA and NAT KING COLE had the good fortune of included it in their repertoire in the fifties.The other two highlights here are EN SORTANT DE L'ÉCOLE and BARBARA,very well put to music.The rest is unfortunately not as interesting;it raises the eternal debate of transfering poems into songs.When it works, like the three exemples cited,it can be marvelous;when it fails ,it becomes annoying.Still, that record was worth doing, and has a place in the heart of YVES MONTAND fans."
A wonderful combination

"This CD combines the expressionate, beautiful tones of Yves Montand, a celebrated French vocalist, with the classic poetry of Jacques Prévert, a renowned French poet. His poems put to music incite the same pleasant and often pensive emotions as when read, and the exquisite singing of Montand renders them only more beautiful."
