Susanne Mentzer: Letter to the World


    Internationally renown Mezzo-soprano collaborates with “the Father of
    American Opera,” Carlisle Floyd, in this World Premier Recording of two song
    Cycles that Mentzer premiered. Classical music lovers have been enjoying
    Menzter’s performance of this songs, especially the settings in Letter to the World
    by Emily Dickinson for many years. Finally, this contemporary masterpiece
    has been recorded. Jake Heggie says, “The beloved mezzo-soprano Susanne Mentzer invests every bit of her considerable
    artistry and passionate singing in these songs. She is the kind of ardent
    champion most composers can only dream of, and it is thanks to her hard work and
    commitment that this music is now recorded—that it exists for us to hear. Most
    important, it gives us more of the invaluable body of work created by an important
    American composer, Carlisle Floyd.”
