Michel Legrand, Regine Together in February Concert

by Leah Salterio


LAST February, international pianist-composer Michel Legrand filled up the PICC Plenary Hall during his two-night Valentine concert. It was the first time Legrand, 71, came to Manila.

During his visit, Legrand auditioned Regine Velasquez, who impressed him with her vocal prowess when she sang two of his compositions, "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life" and "No Matter What Happens" from "Yentl."

Concert producer Maxi-Media International eventually sealed an album deal for Regine to record Legrand songs. Last May, Regine flew to Paris to meet with Legrand and lay the groundwork for the album recording. She spent two days in Legrand's sprawling French home to discuss with him the songs for the album.

Regine will sing a total of 15 songs in the album, "Regine Sings Legrand," which Maxi-Media International will produce as the initial offering of its Maxi-Records. It will be distributed by Viva Records, Regine's record label.

The selections include songs Legrand originally wrote for Barbra Streisand but were never commercially released, like "Blue, Green, Gray and Gone" and "Once You Loved." There are also Legrand standards like "On My Way To You" and "Something New in My Life."

Regine was surprised to learn that Legrand wrote "Happy," one of Michael Jackson's biggest hits, which she will revive in her CD.

Maxi-Media International also negotiated for a Legrand-Regine concert. Plans have been finalized for their show on Feb. 14 and 15 at the PICC Plenary Hall.

"Songbird Sings Legrand" is a joint production of Maxi-Media International with the London-based City Lights Entertainment. Tickets to the show are now available at 3,200, 2,400, 1,800, 1,200, 900 and 600 pesos. Call (+63 2) 551-8999 or 551-7777.

While Regine was in Paris last May, she also did a pictorial for her album cover and publicity stills.

Maxi-Media has allotted a 15-million-peso budget for the album, which the firm also hopes to distribute in the international market. After the launch in Manila next year, the album will also be distributed in the Asian market, US, Canada and Europe.

Just to break even, the producers hope to achieve double platinum status (80,000 copies sold).

Legrand and Regine might also go on an Asian performance tour, according to a source from Maxi-Media International.

Broadway debut

LEGRAND marks his Broadway debut with "Amour," a whimsical and romantic musical based on a well-loved French story by Marcel Ayme. The English adaptation for the Broadway version is by Jeremy Sams and is directed by three-time Tony awardee James Lapine.

"Amour" opened on Broadway last Oct. 20.

Although Legrand is more known for his Oscar-winning movie themes and film scores, he has been focusing on musical theater productions in the past several years. He is now writing the music for the stage version of the classic film musical, "The Young Girls of Rochefort."

He collaborates for the first time with "Miss Saigon" and "Les Miserables" lyricist Alain Boublil, who will write new songs for "The Young Girls of Rochefort." The musical is scheduled to premiere at the Palais des Congres in Paris in September 2003.

Another musical with Legrand music, "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg," originally a movie which starred Catherine Deneuve, will be presented in its Finnish version in Helsinki, Finland this month. The Japanese version of the same musical will open in Tokyo early next year.
