Le OFF présente Les Vieux Beaux

From the YouTube page:

Jean Françaix, the composer that bears a name that undiscutably evokes the camembert and the baguette, leaves behind music tinted with humour and freshness.
There couldn’t be a better set than the bistrot next door to present you “L’heure du Berger”, some brasserie music (and a hymn to the famous Pastis!) that he composed in 1947 that stages with mockery the different protagonistes he observes from the terrace.
A little caricature doesn’t hurt so let’s tease “Les vieux beaux”, this fascinating category of worn males, subtly casanova and discreetly narcissistic.
We leave you to meditate on this burning hot news topic, because, let’s not forget: the Orchestre de Paris has reached its fifties, can you believe it!
