Happy birthday, Susan Graham
The great American mezzo was born on this day in 1960. Everything she does is worth hearing, and she covers an extraordinary range of styles – she is as good in Ives (her Grammy-winning recital with Pierre-Laurent Aimard is stunning) as she is in Handel and Mozart. Here she is in “Parto, parto” from Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito in 2006. Elsewhere on YouTube she does Gershwin proud.
