He was born in 1932 and he is still active.

His name is Michel Legrand. You can read about himĀ HERE.

When the movie “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” appeared in the Soviet Union his music conquered the country.

Decades passed but I still enjoy it (maybe even more than when I heard it first time).

Video below is a wonderful combination of the saxophone performance of this music with beautiful autumn pictures.
