RIP Michel Legrand in General Discussion Posted January 26, 2019 · Report reply Very sad news. I was so lucky to see Michel Legrand for the first and sadly now the only time with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in September. It was a really great concert. Although he did look every one of his eighty-six years when he shuffled out onto the stage, as soon as he sat at the piano the years rolled away. Incidentally, I think they have his birth year wrong in the original post (he was born in 1932 in the same month as John Williams). Apologies for my trademark blurriness, but here is a photo of Legrand with conductor Paul Bateman and the RPO at his recent concert.
