Product Description

Product Description

Susan Graham, whose last two CDs for Erato (Il tenero momento and C’est ça la vie, c’est ça l’amour) were both nominated for Gramophone Awards, returns to Warner Classics with a live recording of her highly acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut.
“For her first recital at Carnegie Hall, [Susan Graham] took the audience on a tour of several worlds… She moved easily among the styles, always with a sense of when, and in what measure to address the music with sobriety, playfulness, subtlety or charm.” (The New York Times)
The career of this “superb American mezzo at the peak of her powers” (Sunday Times, London) continues to go from strength to strength as she appears in a wide range of operas at the world’s leading opera houses and, as demonstrated by the current album, enjoys a similarly varied repertoire in recital.
“Graham sings with such aching sensuality that your heart stretches for her.” (The Independent, June 2002)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wham! 12 Feb. 2010
By Bumblebee Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was in the audience at Carnegie Hall.
Ms. Graham came out and... wham!... she ripped right into the Brahms.
Such vigor!
I hadn't thought of Ms Graham as having such muscular intensity.
I was familiar with her sensitive elegance and lyricism -- which she, later in the evening, displayed wonderfully -- but I wasn't prepared for this explosive side of her.
I left Carnegie Hall slightly stunned.
When I stumbled upon this CD about a year later, I realized why Ms. Graham sounded extra-special that night -- the recital was extra-thoroughly prepared and conceived for this major label recording.
This is Susan Graham in top form singing a wide variety of material all of which suits her well.
Luckily, I had kept my ticket stub.
It now sits inside the jewel case of this wonderful CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Susan Graham is a True Recitalist 15 Dec. 2004
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though not usually one for true live recordings that include audience applause and response, SUSAN GRAHAM AT CARNEGIE HALL works well on every level. Not only is she in top form (as is her collaborator Malcolm Martineau at he piano) vocally and interpretatively, she demonstrates here an obvious rapport with her audience that is magical.

The repertoire here could not be more varied - and successful in every portion of this recital. Graham's voice has that ability to move from her usual mezzo soprano range into the lyric/spinto range with the greatest of ease. The Brahms 'Zigeunerlieder' are full of zest and sparkle. The Debussy 'Proses lyriques' are sensually liquid and Graham's French diction is as perfect as it gets: the Poulenc cycle feels so very natural for all its underlying difficulties. The too rarely heard Berg 'Sieben fruhe Lieder' are elegant and involved and the Messanger and Simons highlight Graham's ease of strolling through unknown works, making them sound so familiar.

Encores are included and for once "thank goodness!" Susan Graham has a special affinity for Reynaldo Hahn and she has mad 'A Chloris' her very own. For the Mahlerites she offers 'Liebst du um Schonheit' (including a comment to the audience) and a Debussy song and a witty ditty written for her by Ben Moore - just for fun.

The audience fortunate enough to have been present during this live recording on April 14, 2003 have now a living memento. For the rest of us that magic is fully contained on this very special recording. Grady Harp, December 2004
5.0 out of 5 stars A hit. 24 Nov. 2013

Great singer, good recording, interesting and varied selection of repertoire. It was a present for an aunt who is both very knowledgable about singers and singing and loves to hear music that is new to her. This was a hit.
