“Letter to the World” Songs by Carlisle Floyd – Released in November 2013!
“Mentzer’s singing is sincere and robust, and she manages extremes of range with technical expertise, bringing evenness and clarity to both highs and lows with smoothness and lyricism.” – Opera News (Read full review here)
“Susanne Mentzer’s performance of my musical profile of Emily Dickinson, Citizen of Paradise, is definitive in every regard: she sings it with a superb range of color and feeling and, as the performing artist, quickly disappears into a vivid and totally convincing evocation of the poet herself. I frankly can’t imagine the cycle of songs (with its very broad span of moods) being more artfully or more movingly performed.” – Carlisle Floyd
