French composer Saint-Preux, born
Christian Saint-Preux Langlade in either 1948 or 1950, revealed his pop
instincts before his 20th birthday, even having a minor chart
success with “A Strange Music”. He took home the Grand Prix de la Presse
award for “The Waltz of Youth”, at the 1969 Sopot International Song
Festival in Poland. While in that country he composed “Concerto for One
, and the recording of it, featuring scat vocals from Danielle
Licari, became his most famous work. A multi-million seller in France, the song
charted in numerous foreign countries including Japan and Mexico. The song
would be covered and adapted by various artist around the globe. He signed a
recording contract with the French arm of Columbia records and enjoyed success throughout
the 70s, climbing to the top of the French charts in 1975 with “Your Hair”.
He remained active through the 80s, capping the decade with the premiere of The
Cries of Liberty
, which he dedicated to Pope John Paull II. He formed a
collaborative relationship with his daughter, Clémence, in the 21st century, reworking his
greatest success into “Concerto for Two Voices”, which she recorded with
Jean-Baptiste Maunier. Her vocals also featured prominently on his 2009 album Jeanne
la Romantique
