Teresa Stratas versus Ute Lemper

Stratas's readings on this disc (the Unknown Kurt Weill) compare favorably with Lemper's on her second Weill disc. Take the song Youkali for example. Lemper's French diction is flawless and idiomatic where Stratas' is, I should say less than perfect, even though it is carefully studied. In spite of Lemper's impeccable French diction, Stratas' is the better recording. Stratas is a classically trained opera singer whereas Lemper is an actress who also happens to sing. Stratas' training and talent shine through in the long, legato phrases that she spins whereas Lemper's phrasing is choppy because she takes breaths in not the best places musically. In addition, Stratas has a higher range. She executes the high notes without a trace of a wobble where Lemper tends to wobble as soon as she hits a high note. In her higher range, Lemper's sound tends to be unpleasant. Not to be outdone, Lemper gives her interpretation a more night clubby spin which is her recording's strength.
