Peter ReberBorn: April 28th, 1949, Bern (Switzerland)
Peter Reber composed no fewer than six songs in four different languages for the Eurovision Song Contest, of which he performed four himself with Peter, Sue & Marc: ‘Les illusions de nos vingt ans’ (1971), ‘Djambo, djambo’ (1976), ‘Trödler und co.’ (1979), and ‘Io senza te’ (1981). The 1976 and 1981 efforts both finished fourth, while ‘Io senza te’ also was an international hit and was covered in many languages. In 1977, Reber composed ‘Swiss lady’ for the Pepe Lienhard Band, which finished sixth. As a conductor, he appeared in the 1980 contest in The Hague, leading the orchestra during the rendition of his self-penned song ‘Cinéma’, which was sung by Paola Del Medico and finished fourth.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Peter Reber will be published on this website
