Charles Trénet

Portrait - La Chance a la chanson

Portrait illuminates the work of those universally recognized artists we all know and love – the leaders and the groundbreakers – those for whom we can all agree there was a 'before' and an 'after'. The two indisputable champions of French chanson are Edith Piaf and Charles Trénet. Trénet was the first in a venerable line of great singer-songwriters, a spur to the creative energy of the likes of Georges Brassens, Léo Ferré and Serge Gainsbourg. For each artist in this series, the songs featured take this collection far beyond a simple 'Best of', inviting the listener not only on a musical journey, but on a journey of love.
