The French composer celebrated film music.
French music composer Francis Lai, who is the first Oscar to Love Story award spectacle author in 1970, has died on Wednesday at the age of 86. The Mayor of Nice Nice City, Christian Estros, said Thursday.
Lai started her musical career as a accordionist and a member of confusing vocalist groups such as Edith Piaf, Juliette Greco and Yves Montand, who also composes songs for him.
The career key was to meet with the director of Claude Lelouch in the 1960's when he composed his most famous songs.
Lai has collaborated on 35 Lelouch films, and is probably the most famous melody of the film Man and Woman (1966), thanks to the good-ba- da-ba-da, da-ba-da-ba-da troi at and Sha-ba-da-ba-da.
Lai's glory came to an end in the 1970's when he won the American Oscar for the soundtrack for Love Story. He later received the Golden Globe award.
Melody with charm
When she had thrown the central melody and the song "Where Do I Start?" After playing by Andy Williams, she was also very successful in the hitparades. In Slovakia, she has included her repertoire as Jana Kociánová as a Where to go song.
Apart from Lelouch Lai, he has worked with other directors from France and Britain during his career. These included Michael Winner, Terence Young, Peter Hall, René Clement, Bryan Forbes, and Philippe de Broca.
He also composed songs to Sergey Reggiani, Dalid, Ella Fitzgerald, and Johnny Hallyday.
In his statement, the Mayor of Nice said he wanted survivors to propose that some of the significant sites in this South African city are named after Lai.
Gilles Jacob, former president of the Cannes Film Festival, in response to Lai's death, said his melodies had an incredible charm. French Culture Minister Franck Riester wrote in his twelfth century that Lai had only a few notes to make even more beautiful and moving films.
