Description

To restrict performance of Schumann's Lieder to the "familiar forty" is to deny a major reservoir of superior song. Richard Miller not only reconsiders his early songs, but takes an in-depth look at the middle and late Lieder, giving them new life as exciting performance vehicles. Offering the same readability and insight in these pages that distinguished his On the Art of Singing (OUP 1996), Miller presents a practical manual to help singers and pianists bring Schumann's Lieder to life.show more

Review quote

"Singing Schumann is a strikingly brilliant and remarkably enlightening work, skillfully conceived and lovingly written. Unquestionably the most important treatise on Schumann Lieder to emerge in nearly two decades, it is a masterful blending of keen insight and strong conviction." --Gary Arvin, Professor of Vocal Coaching and Repertoire, Indiana University School of Music"Professor Miller's knowledge of this field is staggering. . . . I marvel at the author's ability to write clearly, engagingly, and often with humor." --William McIver, Professor of Voice, University of North Carolina, Greensboroshow more
