Susan Graham’s eagerly awaited new recording is a characteristically wide-ranging recital which covers a broad spectrum of female emotions as experienced by the virgins, vixens and one of the most frightening of viragos – Lady Macbeth – captured here in song. Added to this emotional rollercoaster ride, there are also lighter issues for a girl to confront in Poulenc’s witty songs, plus the fruitless pursuit of a boy in the Sondheim…

 "I can’t think of another singer today who could match Susan Graham in an eclectic programme ranging across three centuries, four languages and a diverse array of idioms... she [Graham] finds a relaxed, popular style without compromising vocal quality. Sung with irresistible wit and pizzazz, Rodgers and Sondheim’s crazy bossa nova ’The boy from ...’ sets the seal on a recital of rare versatility and panache."

Richard Wigmore - Gramophone magazine - March 2013

"It’s hard to think of another contemporary singer who could pull off the tour de force  Graham achieves here..."
