Esther Ofarim - I'll See You In My DreamsHer fans will remember some of the songs – and they will be astonished. After almost 40 years these songs sound fresher than in the sixties. Only accompanied by bass, gutar, piano and violin Esther Ofarim presents us a new selection of songs from her rich repertoire.

It ranges from Shakespeare to Leonard Cohen, from Kurt Weill to the Beatles. The titlesong of her new programme I’ll See You In  My Dreams was a huge hit in the 1920ies in the USA. When Esther Ofarim sings it you will know why, as she sings it with such an easyness and freshness accompanied by the choir of her musicians. You can feel her dramatical skills when she implores the „Surabaya-Johnny“, and how many versions do you know of „Yesterday“ and  „Hallelujah“? There may be thousands, but when you hear the interpretations of Esther Ofarim you will enjoy again these wellknown songs, as well as „Cinderella Rockefella“, the hitsong from 1968, which is luckily part of the new programme.
Since more than 40 years Esther Ofarim is performing all over the world and she still gives sold-out shows for her fans. It was eleven years ago when she had her comeback in Hamburg and already six years have passed since she recorded together with the NDR Pops Orchestra the album Back on Stage released on Tropical Music.
Now, four years after the release of the album Back On Stage we are proud to announce the release  of the new album I’ll See You In My Dreams. It was recorded during the two shows early in february 2008 in the St. Pauli Theatre in Hamburg and it presents the highlights of these two shows.
