Présentation de l'éditeur

Nana Mouskouri, the Greek singer and one of the world's most popular entertainers, tells her life story for the first time.

For more than 40 years Nana Mouskouri has been a global singing sensation, from her earliest childhood memories of mid-Thirties Greece to her unstoppable rise to the summit of her profession. She tells of life as a child, experiencing the horrors of war and privation, victimised by bitter parental discord, stigmatised by her father's fatal addiction to gambling.

She was a shy inhibited teenager with a passion for singing, a girl compelled to choose between her love of classical music and her fascination with popular song. As a highly successful adult, she has been racked by uncertainty and the torments of love, a woman struggling to balance music - her raison d'etre - with her role as wife and mother.

Here she describes the life of the star we all know, from her beginnings in the nightclubs of Athens to her triumphs on the world's most glittering stages. Nana launches us into her international tours, taking us to Canada, the United States, Japan and Australasia as well as every country in Europe. She describes how she fought to win over audiences everywhere. In Britain, for example, she enjoyed dazzling success after her first English album Over and Over was released. In quick succession, twenty-three of her titles appeared in the charts. In Australia, she achieved fourteen gold discs in 1974 alone.

Hers is a rich and astonishing life, studded with exceptional encounters and friendships: the incomparable trumpeter Quincy Jones, a musician Nana had secretely worshipped since childhood, introduced her to the United States and became her producer; Yvonne Littlewood, the BBC producer, made Nana a leading star of British television in the 1960s and remains one of her closest friends. Queen Elizabeth II, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, and the Empress Farah Diba of Iran are among the galaxy of extraordinary figures who played a vital part in Nana's career.

Intimate, rich in humanity and music, a spotlit global tour, Nana's book is an event.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The extraordinary story behind one of the most iconic singers of all time 6 juillet 2011

This book tells of Nana Mouskouri's triumphs and heartaches during her almost fifty year career. Her road to superstardom was often difficult, but it almost seemed that there was a destiny at work in her life. Nana's childhood occurred during very turbulent times in Greece including the German occupation. Her father's addiction to gambling resulted in family discord and economic hardship. Nana enjoyed singing even at a very young age, and because of her beautiful voice, her parents enrolled her at the Athens Conservatory. However, because of her father's habitual gambling they could not continue to pay her tuition. Her music teacher, an old German woman by the name of Frau Kempers, felt that Nana needed to sing and allowed her to continue to study opera free of charge. Frau Kempers died before Nana could complete her studies. Her new professor discovered that Nana was singing jazz and popular music in the taverns and nightclubs of Athens and expelled her from the Conservatory. Nana then concentrated on jazz and popular music. Nana's talent impressed the Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis and Greek poet Nikos Gatsos, and they wrote the songs that started her on the road to success. Louis Hazen, the director of Fontana Records, upon hearing Nana sing some of the Hadjidakis and Gatsos compositions felt that she had great potential and signed her to Fontana. Hazen began to promote Nana, and many new horizons opened for her. She experienced many triumphant tours in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan, and her records began to go gold and platinum. Nana developed friendships with many other stars including: Melina Mercouri, Quincy Jones, Harry Belafonte, Charles Aznavour, Serge Lama, Julio Iglesias, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan. Nana married in 1961 and had two children but found it difficult to reconcile her career with her role as a wife and mother, and her marriage ended in divorce in 1975. Nana married her long time artistic director and record producer Andre Chapelle in 2003 when she was 68. Chapelle had been appointed as her artistic director by Louis Hazen in about 1966. Early in her career, Nana was haunted by self doubt and issues with her appearance. Nana, however had an overwhelming desire to sing, and Hazen and Chapelle played major roles in transforming her into an iconic international superstar who could sing everthing from jazz to operatic arias in more than six languages. Nana became an UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1993 and served as a Greek representative to the European Parliament from 1994 to 1999. This book is written in an enjoyable manner and contains many pictures taken at various points in Nana's life. It should should appeal to fans of Nana Mouskouri, as well as to people with an interest in the history of popular music.

I found this book very interesting not only because I love Nana's music, but also I learned a lot about recent Greek history. Not too much is known by the average American about how the governments and borders of other countries were formed, and who did the forming. The book is a bit long with a lot of detail about the different periods in her life, but I would be at a loss to say what I would remove. Both my wife and I found it hard to stop reading until we had finished it.

I just got finished reading Ms. Mouskouri's autobiography memoirs. It took me a little over an month to finish. Good book overall. She discusses her childhood in Greece and her rise to stardom. The only downside that I could think of was I wish at the end of the book they would have had an list of all of her albums. Mouskouri has sold over 300 million albums worldwide and has sung in multiple languages.

Nana Mouskouri gave the world her wonderful music and her magical voice. Through this autobiography, she tells the stories of her journey, her life, her tears, her triumphs, her love of singing, her love of her audience. Genuine and moving. She is a gift to the world and made the world a more beautiful place.

This wonderful lady has had an incredible life. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Actually read it twice in succession. I'm not convinced that the translation form the original French is the best it could be. Perhaps try to to find 'La Fille de la Chauve Souris'?
