The Boosey & Hawkes catalog is one of the greatest treasures of contemporary American vocal literature. This major new series celebrates greatness in American opera, with arias from Carlisle Floyd's Susannah, Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, John Adams' Nixon in China, Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti, Dominick Argento's Postcard from Morocco, and other operas by Argento and Floyd, Jack Beeson, Ned Rorem and other American composers.

American Arias is suitable for professional and college-level singers, ideal for recitals and auditions, and an essential resource for the study of the American opera repertoire. The series presents many arias that have never been published outside of the original complete vocal scores. There are approximately 20 arias per volume. Each collection includes commentary on the operas and arias, and a recording of piano accompaniments that are accessed online via download or streaming.

    I bought this specifically for No Word from Tom, and the book contains the cavatina (No word from tom) and the cabaletta (I go, I go to him)...but not the linking section, so I can't perform it, or even learn it!!! I'm really disappointed. The other arias...

    are great - lots of Argento and Carlisle Floyd, plus good arias from other good composers, but I'm pretty sad the whole aria isn't included: it seems false advertising to me. Be warned!!!
