Piano Accompaniment, Voice
Tenor. Composed by Various. Edited by Philip Brunelle. Boosey & Hawkes Voice. Play Along. Softcover Audio Online. 80 pages. Boosey & Hawkes #M051933655. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48018054).

Item Number: HL.48018054
ISBN 0634087541. Play Along. 9x12 inches.

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 CD of recorded piano accompaniments.

  • March 04, 2009 Exposure to New Repertoire

    This book of American arias is a great collection of challenging works for ambitious singers. The arias in this book are difficult to find outside of their original scores and the accompaniment CD is great for practicing.

    Excellent collection of arias by composeers in the Boosey stable.For those truly interested in American opera there are also two other great collections by ECSPublishing and Schirmer, I particularly enjoy the latter.
