For well over a century, the G. Schirmer edition of 24 Italian Songs & Arias of the 17th and 18th Centuries has introduced millions of beginning singers to serious Italian vocal literature. Offered in two accessible keys suitablefor all singers, it is likely to be the first publication a voice teacher will ask a first-time student to purchase. The classic Parisotti realizations result in rich, satisfying accompaniments which allow singers pure musicalenjoyment.
For ease of practice, carefully prepared accompaniments are also recorded on CD by John Keene, a New York-based concert accompanist and vocal coach who has performed throughout the United States for radio andtelevision. Educated at the University of Southern California, Keene has taught accompanying at the university level and collaborated with Gian Carlo Menotti and Thea Musgrave on productions of their operas.
This fabulous book contains a superb selection of twenty-four Italian Songs and Arias from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, written for Medium-High Voice.
This book also contains access to online audio that features arecorded accompaniment, on a separate track, for each of the pieces in the book. All twenty-four pieces are set here for Medium-High Voice with Piano accompaniment and with lyrics and titles in both Italian andEnglish, this is a versatile volume which can be used for vocal training or purely for enjoyment.
