Customer Rating:   4 Reviews Write a Review


Coloratura Arias for Soprano (G. Schirmer Opera Anthology). For Vocal. G. Schirmer Opera Anthology Series. Baroque, Classical Period, 20th Century and Opera. Difficulty: difficult. Collection. Vocal melody, piano accompaniment, introductory text and notes and translations. 344 pages. Published by G. Schirmer (HL.50483986).

ISBN 0634032089. With vocal melody, piano accompaniment, introductory text and notes and translations. Baroque, Classical Period, 20th Century and Opera. 8.5x11 inches.

An excellent volume of coloratura arias has been added to the G. Schirmer Opera Anthology series. With 30 arias in English, Italian, German, French and Russian, this is the largest collection of coloratura operatic excerpts ever published. Because of the nature of the material, tradition-based performance suggestions are liberally found throughout the volume. For instance, you will find standard vocal variations for the Doll Song from The Tales of Hoffmann included in the edition, along with the original vocal line. Like the other volumes in the ground-breaking series, there are historical and plot notes about each aria, new engravings, and new translations for study.
