Her 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.
