Although Ute Lemper is best known to her devoted cult following as one of the great cabaret singers of all time, the German-born singer began as a stage actress, and has continued this career in tandem with her cabaret work. 1995's CITY OF STRANGERS combines the two sides of Lemper's musical persona, putting songs by the idiosyncratically brilliant Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim next to chansons by the equally unique French composer Jacques Prevert.

As with all fine settings like this, the combination reveals more what the two composers have in common than how they differ. There are tracks by other composers on CITY OF STRANGERS, but Sondheim and Prevert's presence is felt even in songs they didn't compose. The arrangements, alternating between full orchestration and simple bandoneon and vocal, suit the songs beautifully, and Lemper sings with characteristic passion and grace. ---Rovi
