CD Reviews

The French nightingale
Carlos Eduardo Da Silva | Zurich Switzerland | 10/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Name Mireille Mathieu mostly releases two reactions: total adoration or total ignoration. the latter because she often was regarded as a mere copy of E. Piaf. Despite the fact that she totally refused to sing Piaf songs at the beginning of her career which emphazises her uniquiness. Adoration because Mireille is a living Vulcano full of emotions and talent, which she always proves when on stage. She doesn't only have total comand over her powerful voice, (as many singers fail to have nowadays), but she also has a fantastic charisma, making her one of the most powerful singers ever ! France and the French song can be proud of such a cultural ambassador. Anyone who owns at least one CD of Mireille Mathieu will have an outstanding taste and collection."
True Mireille, True Piaf!

"After purchasing and reviewing a more recent and decidedly inferior performance of Piaf (Raquel Bitton), I realized I hadn't contributed to this conversation. It's true, Mireille tends to polarize people; I received a particularly nasty e-mail following my review of Ms. Bitton accusing Ms. Mathieu of being "merely a technician". What a technician! Certainly Mireille Mathieu assumed the mantle of Piaf in the sixties after Piaf's death. This CD of Piaf songs was long overdue. She has a strength and a level of emotion in her voice that others haven't yet achieved. Few of us want to hear an exact transcript of beloved performances by singers departed. We want to hear the spirit of the work continue. Ms. Mathieu accomplishes this in spades, without losing her own considerable identity. I have been a fan of both Piaf and Mathieu for more than 30 years and this CD is a divine melding of the two. I have purchased a dozen copies of this CD over the past few years to give to friends and associates curious about these two singers. Great for a gift or for yourself!"

"I may be biased as Mireille is my favorite singer, but the power and emotion does these songs justice. You cannot miss with this album."
