Mezzo-so­prano Su­san Gra­ham is the toast of the world’s top-tier opera houses, but lo­cals em­brace her as one of their own — she’s a na­tive New Mex­i­can who keeps a res­i­dence in the hills just out­side Santa Fe. Her recital here this week is struc­tured around Schu­mann’s fa­mous song cy­cle Frauen­liebe und -leben , but it’s not quite that sim­ple. She and the em­i­nent col­lab­o­ra­tive pi­anist Mal­colm Martineau will split the cy­cle apart and make its seven con­stituent songs serve as points of de­par­ture for their own lit­tle song groups, link­ing them in this way to songs by Grieg, Strauss, Fauré, Mahler, Ravel, Ber­lioz, and quite a few other com­posers. It’s a con­cept, and you can see how it works out at the Lensic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.), at the early hour of 6:30 p.m. on Thurs­day, March 12. Tick­ets ($27 to $100, with dis­counts avail­able) can be ac­quired by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org. — James M. Keller
