Susan Graham is not just one of the world’s favourite mezzo-sopranos. She has also been awarded the Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur, Ordre des Artes et Lettres, one of France’s most prestigious awards, an honour she shares with the likes of Rudolf Nureyev, Philip Glass and Cate Blanchett. She earned the Legion d’Honneur for her passionate commitment to the music of France. Now she brings a very personal selection of repertoire from La Belle Epoque.

Christopher Moore, Ike See, Timo-Veikko Valve, guest pianist Christian Hadland and guest violinist Karen Gomyo join Graham to explore the inscrutable ‘je ne sais quoi’ of music by Ravel and Franck.

Lose yourself in Respighi’s evocative depiction of a sunset and enjoy a master musician’s homage to ‘magicien des mots’, Stéphane Mallarmé. Then close your eyes and let your imagination roam to the exquisite sounds of piano and strings.
