Klaus MunroBorn: June 28th, 1927, Hamburg (Germany)
Died: February 7th, 2013, Hamburg (Germany)
Munro worked with Mario Panas and French lyricist Yves Dessca to write ‘Après toi’, with which Vicky Leandros won the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest for Luxembourg. It was Vicky’s second Eurovision attempt after her 1967 participation with ‘L’amour est bleu’, also for Luxembourg. Although Munro had not written the orchestration to ‘Après toi’ (these credits go to Arno ‘Addy’ Flor), he conducted the Eurovision orchestra in Edinburgh. He remains one of the conductors to have participated in the contest on one occasion only and having been part of the winning team at the same time.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Klaus Munro will be published on this website
