Duet albums can be a bland marketing matter that you start when all other projects have already been played through, from the unplugged recording to the symphonic orchestral collaboration. The new CD by Nana Mouskouri is the rare exception to this rule. Because "Rendez-Vous" is an album that shows the dedication and attention to even the smallest detail. It starts with the composition of the duet partners, all of whom have been long-time companions of the Greek singer. Because instead of selling names from the current charts, old friends have shared the microphone with Mouskouri with artists such as Alain Delon, Julio Iglesias, Lara Fabian or Charles Aznavour. The result is a musical intimacy that touches and turns the album into a musical photo album. When selecting the songs, Mouskouri only chose songs that were close to her heart: This is how lovingly arranged versions of songs were created that Mouskouri had already recorded, especially in the early years of her long career. During the production, Mouskouri and the musical director Pierre Jaconelli dispensed with modernisms, instead trusting the sound and charm of acoustic instruments. With this, too, Mouskouri emphasizes that the label "Schlager", which was tried to be attached to her, especially in Germany, falls far too short. The titles, sung mainly in French, refer to the tradition of emotional and expressive chansons. Highlights include "Here's To You", which she sings with original interpreter Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan's "Adieu Angelina" (with Roch Voisine). Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" (together with Graeme Allwright), Paul Simon's "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin 'Groovy)" (as "C'est bon, la vie" with Alain Souchon) and their interpretation of the Bobby Goldsboro classic "Honey", with which Mouskouri was successful in 1968 with the French version "Tous Les Arbres Sont En Fleurs". Now she has re-recorded it with her daughter Lenou, who also sings the second voice on the song "Seven Black Roses", in a moving version for "Rendez-Vous". Your German fans should be especially happy about the last song on the CD: Together with Paul Kuhn, she recorded a swing version of "Weisse Rosen aus Athen", which once again reminds us that Nana Mouskouri is also one of the greats as a jazz singer Genres heard.
