A sampling of the world's greatest Baroque and Classical arias. In addition to offering fascinating background information about the arias and their composers, the editor has corrected a multitude of errors which have accumulated over time, and has replaced Romantic-era misinterpretations with accompaniments that are faithful to historical styles.

    Difficulty Level:
  • November 18, 2009 This is hard to write...

    But...it's somewhat assuaging my feelings about having to practice one of the author's orchestral reductions. These are terrible. The voice leading is awful, parts are unplayable, so unmusical! Ok...I've got that off my chest. The IPA in the text of the songs is also annoying...

    particularly when I'm trying to teach basic Italian to a twelve year old. I still use the book though, it has repertoire that's hard to find elsewhere. But my basic question is "Who is John Glen Paton?"
