Carla Bruni is the first confirmation of the Festival Jardins del Palau Reial de Pedralbes. The Franco Italian songwriter will perform on June 19th in Barcelona as part of a world tour that have her through France, Germany, Canada, the U.S. and Israel.
Although it was her first work, “Quelqu’un m’a dit” (2002) when Carla Bruni suddenly reached worldwide fame two years earlier she had discovered her talent as a composer writing several songs for the album “Si j ‘étais elle “(2000) by Julien Clerc.
With their debut, the former model delighted audiences and critics. The reasons were clear, her breathy, sensual voice, introspective lyrics, the stark and acoustic instrumentation, the influences of the chanson française, but also folk, jazz and blues-and the feeling of sincerity and lack of pretension that distilled the album.
Carla could have chosen the easy way by repeating the formula of “Quelqu’un m’a dit”, but on her second album, “No Promises” (2007), faced some risk with a project thet musicalized Anglo-Saxon poems of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Then came “Comme if rien n’était” (2008), where most of the songs were written by her, she also covered the country ballad “You Belong To Me”, popularized by Patsy Cline, and the Italian classic “Il vecchio e il bambino”. Her latest album, “Little French Songs” (2013), is inspired, as acknowledged, in the world of the songs of Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Georges Brassens and Serge Gainsbourg, among others.
After a period away from the stage motivated by her status as first lady of France, Carla Bruni makes her return with a world tour that began in November 2013 (with three sold-out concerts at the Casino de Paris and the tickets sold for the concerts held in May at the Olympia Theatre, and again at the Casino de Paris.), She will come to Barcelona, accompanied by a band composed of piano, guitar and bugle-and they will review their repertoire and present her latest work, “Little French Songs “.
