Malcolm Martineau [piano]

Susan Graham’s eagerly awaited new ONYX CD is a characteristically wide ranging recital which covers a wide spectrum of female emotions as experienced by the virgins, vixens and one of the most frightening of viragos – Lady Macbeth, all captured here in song. In addition to these emotional extremes, there are also lighter issues for a girl to confront, in the Poulenc, and a fruitless pursuit of a boy in the Sondheim to lighten the mood!

Susan is one of the great mezzo sopranos of our time, renowned for her operatic performances, and for her recitals. Her earlier CD for ONYX ‘Un frisson francais – A century of French Song' was widely praised.

"Graham's "bouquet" of French song, spanning 100 years from Gounod to Messiaen is one of the most delicious surprises of the year - chocolate truffles for the ears" Sunday Times, Record of the Year, Hugh Canning 7.12.08

"Graham’s superb pianist, Martineau, is the begetter of what he calls a menu gourmand, and with the help of Graham’s velvet mezzo and beautifully enunciated French, it is served up sumptuously."

Sunday Times, 28.9.08, Hugh Canning, CD of the Week

"The American mezzo Susan Graham covers the quai of French song from Bizet to Poulenc in five sets. The selection is clever, eclectic and often downright obscure. A rare nocturne by the severe Cesar Franck, a sentimental neurosis called Psyche by the unspellable Paladilhe, The Lost Fiancee by Messiaen and Manuel Rosenthal’s English Mouse are just a sampling of this potpourri. Malcolm Martineau is the impeccable accompanist in St Paul’s Church, New Southgate, which is engineered to sound like a Left Bank salon. Delicious." London Evening Standard 12.11.08, Norman Lebrecht
