Melissa Errico is the premier interpreter of the musical legacy of Michel Legrand. She is thrilled to be bringing back her acclaimed Legrand concert to Feinstein’s/54 Below to celebrate the November 8 release of Legrand Affair (Deluxe Edition) from Warner Music/Ghostlight Records, an extended and complete version of the canonic album Legrand Affair produced by Phil Ramone and Richard Jay-Alexander (featuring Errico with the 100-piece Brussels Philharmonic).
T2C had a chance to talk to this prolific artist who is madly in love with the music of Michel Legrand.
Ms. Errico was the only American artist invited to perform at Legrand’s great memorial in Paris in April 2019 – and The New York Times’ choice to write his eulogy. Melissa now offers this full-length concert devoted to the composer with whom she had a uniquely intimate relationship, a concert that also traces and celebrates France and French song in all its many moods and faces. Errico earned a Best Actress Tony Award® nomination for Legrand’s only Broadway musical, Amour.
Melissa Errico in An Even Grander Legrand Affair: Feinstein’s/54 Below, 254 West 54th St. Nov 7th and 8th at 7pm and the 9th at 9pm.
