Synopsis

Amazon.com
International pop star and European parliamentarian Nana Mouskouri is a living monument to the notion of "middle of the road." Greek folk music, Italian opera, French chanson, light classicism, and many other styles all come together in a vocal franchise (more than 200 million copies of her albums sold). On Concert for Peace, recorded in New York's St. John's Cathedral with the assistance of orchestra and chorus, the square-spectacled soprano sings in half a dozen languages and puts Beethoven, Bizet, Andrew Lloyd Weber, and even gospel great Mahalia Jackson through the homogenizer in the name of--you guessed it--peace. While her squeaky-clean voice may not soar as powerfully as in the past (whose does?), Mouskouri remains the Great Comforter of the international pop style. --Richard Gehr

"I saw Concert for Peace on TV over a year ago and I bought the CD as soon as it became available to buy.NANA MOUSKOURI is great as always but the orchestra fails to perform strongly on many ocassions. Overall a great performance by NANA MOUSKOURI."

"Nana Mouskouri sings as no one in the entire history of the world has ever sung. Her ability to interpret such a wide variety of songs, from such a variety of styles and in so many languages is unparalled. Her voice will make you think that you have died and gone to heaven. That is how beautiful it is. This concert, performed at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, is truly divine."
