Now, commemorating 60 years since the Little Sparrow’s classic concert album Récital 1961, New Zealand’s multi-award-winning pop-classical contralto YULIA performs with orchestra and band to revisit those historic performances live on stage.
A fluent French speaker, Russian-born Yulia has explored the distinctive smoulder and brass of the Piaf catalogue for more than a decade, from a special engagement in Chambord Castle in France to the New Zealand Jazz and Blues Festival in Christchurch.
Piaf’s ‘L’hymne a l’amour’ was among the many highlights of Into The West, Yulia’s chart-topping debut album of 2004. Her second, Montage, made her the first female vocalist in New Zealand to have two number one albums in a row, culminating in total sales of 6 x Platinum.
Don’t miss this meeting across the ages, as one of our most inspired talents channels the great chanteuse performing at the peak of her powers: EDITH PIAF à L’Olympia à Paris.
