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.
