Élégie de Françoise

Every year as June 26 nears I think of the great French film actress Françoise Dorléac and the horrific automobile crash that took her life. I admired her work immensely and still do.

In remembrance of her I will be releasing in June an original composition titled Élégie de Françoise thr0ugh CDBaby. I hope it will do her justice.

The music is very tender, melancholy with a touch of nostalgia for music from her era that was sadly too brief.
