Austrian singer Simone Kopmajer’s (formerly known simply as “Simone”) New Romance from Venus Records is a fresh and thrilling encounter of classical music and jazz. Simone and lyricist Karolin Tuerk wrote the lyrics to well-known classical melodies by Liszt, Chopin, Ravel, Bach and others, and performed them with talented Viennese musicians. Surprisingly, these new “songs” sound natural and even familiar, as if they are jazz standards. A fascinating, new jazz vocal album.
