St. Paul, Minn. — Susan Graham is one of the best singers in the world today.

She's a Grammy winner, Musical America's 2004 Vocalist of the year and the recipient of the Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters.

While Graham grew-up in Texas, she speaks and sings French like a native of Paris.

In this week's Regional Spotlight Susan Graham and pianist Malcolm Martineau perform French songs from their Schubert Club recital of December 2009.


Emmanuel Chabrier, Les Cigales (The Cicadas)

Emile Paladilhe, Psyche

Claude Debussy, Harmonie du Soir (Evening Harmony)

Ernest Chausson, Les papillons (Butterflies)
