Susan Graham is praised for her "radiant voice" and her ability to convey the subtle nuances of what seems like "her second native language." Her present programme offers a "tasting menu" of the French melodie tradition - a varied selection of songs ranging from the youthful charm of Bizet's Chanson d'avril to the high drama of Poulenc's La dame de Monte Carlo, and the barbed irony of Ravel's Le paon to the sensuous beauty of Faure's Vocalise-Etude.
