(Vocal Collection). 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 suitable for 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 musical enjoyment. For ease of practice, carefully prepared accompaniments are also available that were recorded by John Keene, a New York-based concert accompanist and vocal coach who has performed throughout the United States for radio and television. 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.

Our customer reviews

This collection of fragments from Italian operas/songs of the 17th. and 18th. centuries, should be amongst the young, serious, singers' repertoire. Singing in the singers' language, Italian, which has no dipthongs, but pure vowels, gives the developing voice, beauty, focus, more even phrasing, and artistry. They are deceptively difficult, and vocal flaws will be apparent ,but in time, with practice and development, and vocal maturity, they will become a cornerstone of the emerging classical singers' collection. I recently had the pleasure of hearing the entire book performed by a world class soprano...she had rearranged the order, and changed some of the keys, but the audience was held in thrall!!show more
