Lucie Manin, one of the most influential and widely admired singing teachers of our time, presents the findings of her extensive investigation into the original Italian art of bel canto singing. After summarizing the history of bel canto and some mistaken teaching methods, she describes in detail her own research into the psychological aspects of voice production and explains the techniques of bel canto - from posture and breathing to details of messa di voce and coloratura. Illuminated throughout by the author's practical and musical insights, and illustrated with exercises from original bel canto manuals, this book will be of value to those who wish to master this important style. Readership: singers, students and teachers of singing; anyone concerned with the technique of singing.
