  • 2009-03-24 00:00:00.0 Fine vocal line; bad key and accompaniment

    The original key is a half step higher than this (E major). It makes a world of difference, not only to the singer as far as placement and range goes (for a soprano a B and a B flat can be a huge half step) but also to the listener...

    . The original key has a much tenser mood to it. This key (E flat major) feels sluggish, boring, and less intense. Just my personal opinion: if you're using this for an audition piece or a performance piece, find it in the original key. That's the key Bernstein chose-- he must have done it for a reason!
