Serge Gainsbourg en dix leçons (Chorus) (French Edition) by Bertrand Dicale

By Bertrand Dicale

Génie ? Caméléon ? Opportuniste ? Dandy ? Précurseur ? Touche-à-tout ? Imposteur ? Révolutionnaire ? On n’a pas fini de s’interroger sur Serge Gainsbourg, sur son extraordinaire trajectoire d’artiste et sur los angeles position singulière qu’il occupe dans l’histoire de l. a. chanson française – l’auteur-compositeur nourri de musique classique qui écrit los angeles Javanaise est aussi le provocateur mal rasé qui aligne des tubes funk salaces… A l’occasion d’une série de cours à l. a. Cité de l. a. Musique, en parallèle à l’exposition Gainsbourg 2008, Bertrand Dicale a porté un regard neuf et sans complexes sur los angeles carrière et sur l’œuvre du plus actuel des grands maîtres de notre musique populaire. Il fallait essayer de comprendre remark cet ancien pianiste de bar sans envergure a lentement mûri puis imposé son écriture, remark il s’est autant imprégné de l’actualité de l. a. musique que de son histoire pour édifier une œuvre résolument hors normes, remark il a oscillé entre intransigeance artistique et ambition commerciale, remark il a concilié exigences d’avant-garde et séduction populaire… On a oublié que los angeles plupart des chansons de Gainsbourg qui sont aujourd’hui considérées comme des classiques ont d’abord été des bides (La Javanaise, Sous le soleil exactement, L’Anamour…) et qu’il n’a longtemps connu le succès que par procuration (Les Sucettes, remark te dire adieu, Harley Davidson). On a aussi oublié qu’après l’énorme succès de scandale de Je t’aime moi non plus, il n’a vraiment connu le succès qu’à plus de cinquante ans, avec Aux armes et caetara qui séduit les children de 1979. En dix leçons, donc, voici remark Serge Gainsbourg s’est imposé comme une référence majeure de l. a. tradition européenne contemporaine. Dix leçons qui replacent l’homme, los angeles carrière et l’œuvre dans leur époque, dans leur logique secrète, dans leur flamboyance specified. Dix leçons titrées «Différer», «Décevoir», «Echouer , «Vendre», «Choquer», «Persévérer», «Triompher», «S’éparpiller», «Durer» et «Mourir».
