For the first time ever, Peter has recorded a collection of coverversions. The songs come from a variety of musical worlds:Classical, American Songbook, Italian Pop and Tango. In all butthree cases Peter has also translated the songs, from Italian,French and German. As strange a project as this might seem,there‘s an overall sense of cohesiveness to it and it‘s absolutelyof this time. Two songs have lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein; themusic for one is by Jerome Kern, the other by Richard Rodgers.Leiber and Stoller provided lyrics for "I who have nothing‘,originally an Italian tune. Three Italian songs are at the core ofthe album, written (and originally performed) by Fabrizio deAndre, Luigi Tenco and Piero Ciampi. The two tango pieces werecomposed by Astor Piazzolla. Finally, there are two classicalsongs, respectively by Faure and Mahler. In Peter‘s own words_."This collection seems to fit together as a group, not leastbecause most of these songs are to do with measures ofdislocation, of loss, of some kind of imagined or anticipatedfuture which didn‘t arrive. I was unfamiliar with several of thesesongs before I began this project. One discovery led on toanother in some kind of paper trail. The back stories to thesongs are interesting and some of the writers and singers had aspectacularly dramatic time of things. I doff my hat to thesesometimes complicated lives. My approach has always been tomake cultural rather than strictly linguistic translations, so thatthe spirit of the song rather than its precise narrative isrendered. I hope I‘ve addressed the material, the writers, theoriginal performers, with due and proper respect. Inevitablythough there‘s spin here: mine all mine." "Finally, theserecordings were made, of course, in the time of Covid andlockdown. But also in the knowledge that Brexit was fastapproaching. So these performances of, for the most part,European songs were my last as a European singer, with all therights and privileges that has brought me for so many years.
