Audio Feature: Georgette's Chanson

Georgette Dee
Georgette Dee
The newspaper Die Zeit called Georgette Dee “Germany’s greatest living chanson singer”. Her art is full of life, love and poetry and distinctly original. By being herself, or himself - as Georgette Dee is a stage persona - she has carved her own way. At her side is the English pianist and composer Terry Truck, who writes songs with her and accompanies her on the piano. 30 years later, she still captivates audiences. This feature traces her varied work that took her to London, Vienna, Paris and to the former GDR.
