For well over a century, the G. Schirmer edition of 24 Italian Songs & Arias of the 17th and 18th Centuries has introduced millions of beginning singers to serious Italian vocal literature. Offered in two accessible keys suitable for all singers (this version Medium High Voice), it is likely to be the first publication a voice teacher will ask a first-time student to purchase. The classic Parisotti realizations result in rich, satisfying accompaniments which allow singers pure musical enjoyment. For ease of practice, carefully prepared accompaniments are also available separately that were recorded by John Keene, a New York-based concert accompanist and vocal coach who has performed throughout the United States for radio and television. Educated at the University of Southern California, Keene has taught accompanying at the university level and collaborated with Gian Carlo Menotti and Thea Musgrave on productions of their operas.

    Difficulty Level:
  • May 06, 2007 Excellent Book for Learning Italian

    Throughout my years studying voice, I have learned and enjoyed each and every piece in this collection. It is excellent for a quick addition to recitals, or as crowd-pleasing fare. They are not incredibly difficult, but they are lovely, and great for learning to sing in Italian.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 14, 2007 Suitable Arias Anthology

    This is a great book. It is includes so great pieces, including Caro Mio Ben, which I have as a piece for competition. This book presents suitable material in which a voice student can find pieces that are easy to learn - for most. The difficulty range i think ranges from...

    beginner to early intermediate. If you are looking a really tough, hard core book, this is not for you; however, if you want a book of arias that you can learn quickly just to get ready for something (program, recital etc...) this is a great choice.
