A profile feature from the New York Times - "How Ute Lemper, German Chanteuse, Spends Her Sundays"

With her sultry stage persona and “sharp vocal claws,” as a review in The New York Times put it, the German chanteuse Ute Lemper doesn’t project the vibe of an Upper West Side mom. But on Sundays — when she’s not presenting cabaret classics by Kurt Weill or her latest song cycle, “The 9 Secrets,” a setting of Paulo Coelho’s “Manuscripts Found in Accra” — she’s just that. “The rock-solid foundation of my life is my family, and I enjoy very much being with my kids and seeing them happy,” Ms. Lemper said, adding, “It’s only onstage that I am the glamorous lady.” Ms. Lemper, 52, lives in two apartments on different floors of a West 76th Street building with her husband, the percussionist and producer Todd Turkisher, 56; their children, Julian, 10, and Jonas, 4; and, when they are home from college, her two children from a previous marriage, Max, 21, and Stella, 19.
