lisez cette biographie en français

"Wings" received three "Grammy Awards" nominations, the "Grand Prix de L'Académie Charles Cros" in France and the "Edison Prize" in Holland. In Canada, the music of Wings became a TV special which won the "Genie Award" for "Best Score" and in Japan, he became known as "Fusion-Sama" or "Godfather of fusion." Jacques Demy ("The Umbrellas of Cherbourg") asked Colombier to compose the music for "Une Chambre en Ville" ("A Room To Let"), which Demy called his "dearest and most serious film." In this very special work no word is spoken, only sung (like in "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg"). Although the film was not a commercial success, it was unanimously lauded by the French film critics. They agreed to take out a full page ad in "Le Monde" - at their own expense - urging the public to see this "masterpiece." Colombier received a "Cesar" nomination for "Best Score."

His score for "Purple Rain" won the "People's Choice Award", the song "Elisa", which he had written with Serge Gainsbourg, became the inspiration for the film with the same name and went on to win the "Cesar" for Best Score. He is also the recipient of the "Tokyo Music Award" and was awarded the "Prix de la Musique Symphonique Légère" in France.    >>
