About this project
I had to write a short feature/ad for my concert describing the venue and its history.
My usual residency at Le Monteverdi, 5-7 Rue Guisard, St. Germain Des Pres has rolled around again. Playing a selection of french chansons (with a strong english accent), jazz ballads, blues and my beloved obscure torch songs is alwalys a pleasure. This intimate and charming restaurant, was begun by Claudio, the grandson of the great Italian Operatic composer. A portrait of the great man takes pride of place in the centre of the main room. Nestling in the beautiful setting of Rue Guisard, Le Monteverdi has a fascinating history.
