One song made him world famous: Autumn Leaves, originally Les feuilles mortes. It was sung by Yves Montand and others in the Paris film Les portes de la nuit. Joseph Kosma, who grew up in Budapest, was a pupil of Bartók and a follower of modernism, joined the circle around Eisler, Brecht and Weill as a Berlin scholarship holder. In 1933 he emigrated to Paris. In collaboration with Jacques Prévert, he became an exponent of French chanson. During the German occupation, he wrote film music that was published under the names of friends. A revue of selected chansons, sung by Stefanie Wüst, pays tribute to his music. Manuela Schwartz and Habakuk Traber shed light on the life story of the Frenchman from Hungary.
