Puccini's songs were written as occasional pieces: student works, contributions to periodicals, salon pieces for friends. Some passages pre-echo, or were borrowed for, his operas, and they throw fascinating light on his compositional development. The 15 songs are presented here with English translations, notes on chronology, and a detailed introduction. Most are suitable for either male or female performers.

    These are Michael Kaye's iconic original collection of Puccini's songs.Singer sailor does not know what he's talking about, these songs should be a must study for every serious singer.

  • April 29, 2012 Why I returned the Puccini songs

    The Puccini songs are well-printed, easily readable, and attractively bound. They are unfortunately not particularly interesting musically, and are easier than the music I usually assign my high school students for their senior recitals. As such I found the volume not worth the $20+ investment. As I have been...

    teaching for 42 years and have completed all requirements for a DMA in vocal performance and pedagogy, I applaud all efforts to expose students to less familiar work; this volume does not measure up to my requirements.
