Michel Roux Jr

Chef, restaurateur and television presenter Michel Roux Jr presents a selection of his favourite music, including Wagner, Vivaldi, Mozart, Brassens, Piaf, Brel and Trenet.

Michel Roux Jr does not allow music in his restaurants nor in their kitchens. For him the food is the music. However, he is a great music lover - of both classical music and, in particular, of the mainly French chanson tradition. In this edition of Saturday Classics he presents a selection of music including Wagner, Vivaldi, Mozart, Brassens, Piaf, Brel and Trenet.

First broadcast in December 2013.
