SCL mourns Michel Colombier

August 31, 2009

MICHEL COLOMBIER 1939 - 2004 From SCL President Dan Foliart: The Society of Composers & Lyricists has lost a great friend and ally. We're sorry to report the passing of Michel Colombier, whose versatility as an artist was only eclipsed by his passion for music and love of life. Beginning with his arrangements for Charles Aznavour's first album featuring English lyrics to recent collaborations with his friend, Mikhail Baryshnikov, his artistic palette was unique in every way. From such diverse movies as UNE CHAMBRE EN VILLE to PURPLE RAIN, Michel explored a multitude of textures and styles. His contributions to the careers of Petula Clark, Barbra Streisand and the Kronos Quartet will stand as a fitting legacy for this gifted composer. The SCL was fortunate to have the rare opportunity to share an evening with Michel in recent months. He will be missed by all of us. http://www.michelcolombier.com
