Birkin/Gainsbourg: The Symphonic

Jane Birkin presents a symphonic tribute to the creative works of her long term partner, the iconic Serge Gainsbourg.

Gainsbourg Symphonic embraces the grandeur of Gainsbourg’s music, as Jane Birkin reinterprets his work with the rich sound of the Wordless Music Orchestra.

Few people are closer to Serge Gainsbourg’s music than Jane Birkin. She was his muse, his collaborator, and the inspiration for much of his songs. And since his death, she has devoted herself to his legacy, performing and reworking his stunning material. But if anyone comes close to knowing Serge Gainsbourg’s music like Birkin does, it’s his producer Philippe Lerichonne with whom Birkin collaborates on this project. Together with Japanese composer, arranger and pianist Nobuyuki Najakima, they have created Gainsbourg Symphonic, a beautiful tribute to the rich legacy of a remarkable musician.

Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright will be making a special appearance with Jane Birkin and the Wordless Music Orchestra at Carnegie Hall.

In celebration of Barnes & Noble’s Vinyl Weekend, Birkin will appear at a special LP signing event at the Barnes & Noble on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan at 2pm on November 18.
