  1. Wonderful tune. I’ve heard Yves Montand’s recording. Quite unusual.

    The downloadable files do not appear to be those for La Bicyclette, however.

    I found your website just today. It’s enormous.

    I sat 2 metres from Roland Dyens as he played in Brussels (The Town Hall in Schaerbeek, one of the outlying boroughs) in June 2003. Quite amazing, watching his technique.

    The 2 best tickets in the room were resold to me simply by chance. They were the last 2, as well. Amazing luck.
