Album released 22nd October 2012
Susan is one of the great mezzo sopranos of our time, renowned for her operatic performances and for her recitals. Here, in Henri Duparc's Romance de Mignon she captures perfectly Mignon's visionary state, and conveys wonderfully the image of the girl hypnotised by her dream.
