About this show

Oscar winning composer, arranger, conductor and pianist Michel Legrand has composed over 200 film scores including The Thomas Crown Affair (The Windmills of Your Mind) and Summer of ‘42 as well as several musicals including Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Yentl which have won him three Oscars and five Grammys. He was 22 when his first album, I Love Paris, became one of the best-selling instrumental albums ever released. His albums now number over 100 spanning jazz, musical theatre, variety and classical styles on which he has worked with Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Jack Jones, Regine Velasquez, Ella Fitzgerald, Perry Como, Lena Horne, Dame Kiri te Kanawa, James Ingram, Johnny Mathis, Barbra Streisand and many other leading musicians.

A truly rare opportunity to see this legendary musician perform his era defining music with one of the world's great Big Bands. Following an unforgettable capacity concert with the RPO in 2018, French film and jazz composer Michel Legrand returns to the Royal Festival Hall for one more evening of some of the 20th century's most memorable music, with the Ronnie Scott's Jazz Orchestra and very special guests to be announced in due course.
