  • March 06, 2009 Challenging for your sopranos

    A student - high school soprano - chose this to sing because she loves Candide, and it is a big challenge for her. It stays up in the higher register, and really gives her some high notes to stretch for.

    Very difficult piano part, but then what else would one expect from Lenny Bernstein? Oh, and the vocal part is exceptionally challenging, too.

  • November 07, 2007 Awesome!

    I think this is such a great song for a soprano who wants to sing the high notes! Its advanced with coloratura passages and a chance to act! Dramatic for sure!

  • October 16, 2007 Tough Music, but Rewarding

    This brilliant aria from Candide is one of the most difficult of Bernstein's works, and lots of sopranos try to perform it--some successfully, others not...quite so successfully. However, if the soprano has the instrument appropriate for this music, slow, methodical work over a long period of time...

    will certainly provide the basis for many successful performances--and as a coach/vocal instructor, I can definitely advise you to make sure you get a competent pianist, while you're at it. Nothing can sabotage a great singer quite so much as a rotten pianist! If I were to recommend another not-so-difficult modern piece of the same genre, I would suggest "Fair Robin I Love" from Kirke Mechem's Tartuffe.
