American premiere performances of chansons by Charles Bordes

Rebekkah … proves that some people are simply born to perform the music of certain genres or composers. Without reservation I can say much the same about Ms. Graves and French chansons, especially in her readings of the extraordinarily compelling works of Charles Bordes, a contemporary of Debussy. A lyric soprano with a silvery voice, impeccable diction and real interpretive savoir faire, she sings these — as well as music of Debussy and the always charming Duparc — divinely. Very much in the refined tradition of Claire Croiza, Yvonne Printemps and Suzanne Danco… How I would love to hear this splendid chanson interpreter as Melisande! Anyone casting at the moment?”
