Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • In this video, Ute Lemper sings the songs of Marlene Dietrich and Edith Piaf. Also included is a tour of sites in Berlin and Paris that were once frequented by Dietrich and Piaf, as well as an interview with one of Piaf's songwriters, Georges Moustaki.
  • Personnel: Ute Lemper (vocals); Slim Pezin (guitar); Alain Kouznetzoff (violin); Marcel Azzola (accordion); Juan Jos‚ Mosalini (bandoneon); Gilbert Audin (bassoon); Pierre Holassian (alto saxophone); Patrick Bourgoin (tenor saxophone); Thierry Caens (piccolo trumpet); Jean-Jacques Justafre (French horn); Bruno Fontaine (piano, keyboards); Serge Perathoner (synthesizer); Jannick Top (bass guitar); Yves Sanna (drums); Marc Chantereau (percussion).
  • Audio Mixer: Martin Atkinson.
  • Recording information: Guillaume Tell Studio, Paris, France; Palais Des CongrŠs Studio, Paris, France.
  • Arranger: Bruno Fontaine.
  • ILLUSIONS is one of Ute Lemper's purest artistic statements. Like the similar UTE LEMPER SINGS KURT WEILL, this album is a tribute, this time to two of her clearest influences, Marlene Dietrich and Edith Piaf. Though Lemper doesn't actually sound much like either singer (her voice is far more robust than Piaf's, and more expressive than Dietrich's), she finds the emotion at the heart of "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien," and similarly has Dietrich's cool delivery down, giving a different twist to songs like "Jonny, Wenn Du Gerburtstag Hast."
  • The arrangements, for orchestra and small combo, are excellent, and Lemper is in typically superb voice throughout. Fans of the singer's Broadway work or her pop album PUNISHING KISS will find this an intriguing celebration of her musical roots.
Professional Reviews
Musician (4/93, p.88) - "...It takes more than nerve to stake a claim on the better-known parts of Marlene Dietrich's or Edith Piaf's repertoire--it takes chops. And Lemper has them, caressing each melody with care, and sounding like a native in English, French or German..."
