Ute Lemper Breathes New Life Into Poems of Pablo Neruda Through Song

Last month, Ute Lemper, the famed singer and interpreter of works by Kurt Weill, Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf and more, extended her repertoire with the release of her latest album, "Forever: The Love Poems of Pablo Neruda." Recently set to music by Lemper and her collaborators, she is now sharing these poems live with the world through a series of performances, include a brief run this week at the New York City cabaret venue, 54 Below.

I had a chance to catch up with Lemper, who took a break from another recording session to talk about her passion for this latest project and excitement for the upcoming performances at 54 Below.
