La Bande à Bonnot

Paris 1954,  Henri-François Rey writes La Bande à Bonnot. He asks Boris Vian to write its songs. Hardly installed, the show, played at Théâtre du Quartier Latin, is removed from the display, probably because of censorship. The musical scores are lost.

Ursula Vian-Kubler found the manuscripts of Boris’ songs. In 1971, under the leadership of Jacques Canetti, the work is set to music by Louis Bessières in a “Three penny Opera” way .

In 1971, Jacques Canetti record these songs with Yves Robert, Judith Magre, Kim Ibarra, Maurice Barrier, Lucienne Vernay, Pierre Jamet and Cécile Vassort. A gem that has no age!

As a bonus, two songs whose texts have been outlined for the original show : “La java des chaussettes à clou” by Jacques Higelin and “L’anguille” by Magali Noël.

SIMONE SIGNORET READING LA VOIX HUMAINE from JEAN COCTEAU  

This album was recorded in 1964 by Jacques Canetti at Simone Signoret and Yves Montand’s home, Place Dauphine.

“Of all my plays, La Voix Humaine, written as a reaction against decorative research and amongst other things, against my taste for the inhuman, the fantastic and dreams, will without a doubt be the one that will put down the deepest roots into the solitude that this universe condemns us to, where tears continually triumph over laughter. Laughter is a defence mechanism. It tries to overcome the “difficulty of being” against which the instinct of self-preservation revolts.

Not only is the telephone sometimes more dangerous than a gun, but its meandering wire drains our strength and gives us nothing in exchange. I wrote this act as a solo for the human voice of an actress (or opera singer).”
