THE BEST OF 50 YEARS FILM MUSIC BY MICHEL LEGRANDIt is difficult to pin the multi-talented Michel Legrand down into one single category. This amazingly versatile singer, songwriter, composer, arranger, conductor and producer has enjoyed a whirlwind career, excelling in an impressively broad range of domains from film soundtracks and French ‚chanson‘ to jazz and classical music.An international star, who has won as much respect in the United States as he has in Europe, Legrand is an insatiable musician whose creativity and ambition appear to know no bounds. “Melody is the mistress of music”, he is fond of saying. Accompanied by the Orchestre National d’Île-de-France, Michel Legrand is going to prove it again tonight by giving us the pleasure of rediscovering, in their symphonic dress, his most beautiful film scores. And all of this together with the Quebec star Mario Pelchat and the kind participation of some of the big names in French song: Maurane, Liane Foly, Patrick Fiori and many surprise guests. For the programme for this evening, the composer has compiled a sumptuous panoramic traveling view, spanning over fifty years of “Legrandish” cinema, as the Americans like to say. Namely, an anthology of vibrant music written for The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,The Young Girls of Rochefort, Yentl and Ice Station Zebra. That’s not all. As the icing on the birthday cake, the maestro will provide us with a bunch of his most famous songs like Summer ‘42, The Windmills of my Heart and How long to die my Youth. A title that looks very much like a profession of faith.
In this study, I analyze late twentieth-century French novels and movies that have, central to their narratives, love between women, and I bring to the surface the fresh standpoints that authors and filmmakers develop about changing and contested modes of relationality in modern France. More particularly, I demonstrate how the normative connotations of lesbian love, first impose oppressive and reductive representations of women who love women, and second, how these connotations can be displaced from within, and, once subverted, open up questions that pertain to other domains of human life than love, in particular to notions of temporality, community and relationality.
This volume brings together a cross-section of papers presented at the 33rd International Council of Social Welfare (ICSW) conference in Tours, France, in July 2008. Although it is a more or less random compilation, the contributions raise important topics offering great insight into the multiplicity of ways that nations and communities are responding to the challenges of globalisation as well as internal demands for greater social justice and equality as well as mechanisms for civil society. The authors are working across disparate national settings which makes it especially interesting by providing very different perspectives and allows as well to look at possible convergences. A main issue is a global approach to social policy and social development but tailored to local communities is required. It is as well underlined that limitations on strict “professional” domains can easily do more harm than allowing gain
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The County of Marche was a medieval French county, approximately corresponding to the modern département of Creuse. Marche first appeared as a separate fief about the middle of the 10th century, when William III, Duke of Aquitaine, gave it to one of his vassals named Boso, who took the title of count. In the 12th century, the countship passed to the family of Lusignan. They also were sometimes counts of Angoulême and counts of Limousin. With the death of the childless Count Guy in 1308, his possessions in La Marche were seized by Philip IV of France. In 1316 the king made La Marche an appanage for his youngest son the Prince, afterwards Charles IV. Several years later in 1327, La Marche passed into the hands of the House of Bourbon. The family of Armagnac held it from 1435 to 1477, when it reverted to the Bourbons. In 1527 La Marche was seized by Francis I and became part of the domains of the French crown. It was divided into Haute Marche and Basse Marche, the estates of the former continuing until the 17th century. From 1470 until the Revolution, the province was under the jurisdiction of the parlement of Paris.
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sabrage is a technique for opening a champagne bottle with a saber, used for ceremonial occasions. The saber is slid along the body of the bottle toward the neck. The force of the blade hitting the lip breaks the glass to separate the collar from the neck of the bottle. The cork and collar remain together after separating from the neck.This technique became popular in France when the army of Napoleon visited many of the aristocrat domains. It was just after the French revolution and the saber was the weapon of choice of Napoleon''s fearsome cavalry (the Hussars). Napoleon''s spectacular victories across all Europe gave them plenty of reason to celebrate. During these parties the cavalry would open the Champagne with their sabers. Napoleon probably encouraged this and is known to have said: "Champagne! In victory one deserves it, in defeat one needs it."

The Prehistory of the Iberian peninsula begins with the arrival of the first hominins 1.2 million years ago and ends with the Punic Wars, when the territory enters the domains of written history. In this long period, some of its most significant landmarks were to host the last stand of the Neanderthal people, to develop some of the most impressive Paleolithic art, alongside with southern France, to be the seat of the earliest civilizations of Western Europe and finally to become a most desired colonial objective due to its strategic position and its many mineral riches.
Lothair I (German: Lothar, French: Lothaire, Italian: Lotario) (795 29 September 855), was a post-Roman king of Italy (818 855) and crowned Carolingian King of (Northern) Italy, Emperor of the Romans and (nominally) was Emperor of the Franks (840 855). Lothair was the eldest son of the Carolingian emperor Louis the Pious and his wife Ermengarde of Hesbaye, daughter of Ingerman, duke of Hesbaye. He led his full-brothers Pippin I of Aquitaine and Louis the German in revolt against their father on several occasions, in protest against his attempts to make their half-brother Charles the Bald a co-heir to the Frankish domains. Upon the death of the father, Charles and Louis joined forces against Lothair in a three year civil war (840-843), the struggles between the brothers leading directly to the break up of the great Frankish Empire assembled by their grandfather Charlemagne, and would lay the foundation for the development of modern France and Germany. Little is known of his early life, which was probably passed at the court of his grandfather Charlemagne. Shortly after the accession of his father, he was sent to govern Bavaria.

Known as Charles the Terrible to his enemies, he was the last Valois Duke of Burgundy and his early death was a pivotal, if under-recognised, moment in European history. After his death, his domains began an inevitable slide towards division between France and the Habsburgs (who through marriage to his heiress Mary of Burgundy became his heirs). Neither side was satisfied with the results and the disintegration of the Burgundian state was a factor in most major wars in Western Europe for over two centuries.

Saint Elzéar of Sabran, Baron of Ansouis, Count of Ariano, was born in the castle of Saint-Jean-de-Robians, in Provence, southern France, in 1285, he died in Paris on September 27, 1323. After a thorough training in piety and the sciences under his uncle, Abbot William of Sabran, of the Abbey of St. Victor at Marseilles, he acceded to the wish of king Charles II of Naples and married the virtuous Blessed Delphina of the house of Glandèves. He respected her desire to live in virginity and joined the Third Order of St. Francis, vying with her in the practice of prayer, mortification and charity towards the unfortunate. At the age of twenty he moved from Ansouis to Puy-Michel for greater solitude, and formulated for his servants rules of conduct that made his household a model of Christian virtue. Upon the death of his father in 1309, he went to his new domains in Italy and, after subduing by kindness his subjects who had despised the French, he was able to march to Rome at the head of an army and aid in expelling the Emperor Henry VII.
