Репортаж с концерта Филиппа Дареса от Радио Диалог:

Филипп Дарес: "Из Парижа с любовью"

Программу «Из Парижа с любовью» представил в Jam Club Андрея Макаревича певец, гитарист и композитор Филипп Дарес. Гости клуба – любители французского шансона – погрузились в пространство улочек Парижа с их уютными кафе и ностальгическими звуками аккордеона.
Филипп Дарес начал заниматься классической гитарой в 12 лет. Самостоятельно овладел различными стилями игры. И это позволило ему работать с известными коллективами, к примеру, оркестром Жака Элиана. Филипп Дарес как аккомпанировал звездам французской песни – Жюльет Греко, Саше Дистель, Колет Ренар, Шарлю Трене. Так и сам пел в легендарных кабаре «Мулен Руж», «Лидо», «Паради Латэн».
