Happy Birthday, Gabriel Bacquier!

Joyeux Anniversaire!

We're going to break away from our usual fare of barihunks today to celebrate the 87th birthday of the great Gabriel Bacquier. He was unquestionably one of the great singing actors of our time and to this day remains a proponent of French music and style. Although a true Francophile, he was equally successful in the Italian repertory. This clip shows the amazing attention that he paid to the text even when singing at a rapid fire pace.

Make sure to toast the "Great Gabriel" with a glass of Gamay today.
