Michel Legrand (1932–2019)

[“You Must Believe in Spring.” Music by Michel Legrand, written for The Young Girls of Rochefort (dir. Jacques Demy, 1967). Frank Morgan, alto. Hank Jones, piano. From Morgan’s album You Must Believe in Spring (Antilles, 1992).]

The pianist and composer Michel Legrand has died at the age of eighty-six. His music, especially his scores for The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Young Girls of Rochefort, has brought much joy to our household.
