    Course start date:  Tue 12 Nov 2024

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  Pierre Porcheron
    Venez découvrir la vie et la carrière de « Gainsbarre ». Fils d'immigrants juifs ashkénazes d'origine ukrainienne, Serge Gainsbourg voulait d'abord être artiste peintre, mais il accède finalement à la notoriété en tant qu'auteur-compositeur-interprète, abordant un grand nombre de styles musicaux.







    Cultivant une image de poète maudit (même s’il ne se trouve pas en marge du système), il composera de nombreuses chansons dont les textes, très souvent provocateurs et à double-sens, lui valent de nombreuses polémiques. Il est aussi célèbre pour avoir été un auteur prolifique pour d’autres artistes et en particulier, des femmes (Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Adjani…).
