In this episode of “Wild Women of Song” we discuss the legacy of classical and popular song composer Dana Suesse – also known as “The Girl Gershwin.” Born Nadine Dana Suesse in 1909 in Kansas City, her talent blazed early, holding her first concert at the age of nine.
Many thanks go out to pianist and music historian Peter Mintun, whose tender stewardship of Dana Suesseʼs works, recordings and memorabilia have kept her memory alive.
Peter Mintun has graciously uploaded many of Dana Suesse’s compositions to SoundCloud. Do yourself a favor and check it out!
