Museum piece

Paris' Museum of Music, part of the Cité de la Musique, is putting together a huge exhibition about Serge Gainsbourg, to run from October 2008 to February 2009. A blog dedicated to the show has been set up. There are only two entries so far, but one of them is a doozy: It juxtaposes excerpts showing how both Duke Ellington and Gainsbourg adapted Grieg's "Solveig's Song" from Peer Gynt. Brilliant.
