In a powerful homage to her partner and mentor Serge Gainsbourg, chanteuse, star of film and stage, style icon and darling of the French avant-garde, Jane Birkin, will give one special Sydney concert – Jane Birkin Sings Serge Gainsbourg.
For more than a decade she was muse to the legendary French singer, songwriter and enfant terrible Gainsbourg. He was a cult hero in France and his death in 1991, warranted something of a national day of mourning. Together they produced six albums and continued to collaborate professionally long after their relationship finished in 1980. In her long career, Jane Birkin has starred in countless films and released dozens of recordings. Many of Gainsbourg’s songs were written specifically for her (with that voice in mind) and given that they are mostly about love – love of her and with her – Jane sings them with a very real, if understated, passion.
