Café des Chansons: Charlotte Haesen plus four musicians from the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra.
On a sunny Saturday afternoon, she sang French chansons at Amsterdam’s Noordermarkt, where she was discovered by viola player Odile Torenbeek.
Odile and Charlotte decided to put together a chanson programme anchored in a string quartet ensemble. Leading arrangers such as Paul Prenen and Wijnand van Klaveren then ‘arrayed’ the chansons around Charlotte’s own particular sound.
The next step was the founding of Café des Chansons: Charlotte Haesen plus four musicians from the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra.
They perform gems of the repertoire, including the great French classics by figures such as Barbara, Gainsbourg and Piaf.
