Franz Schubert: 100 Songs

Review: The most useful collection of Schubert songs available! Unlike international editions, these new songbooks contain only a few favorite songs from Die Schöne Müllerin and Die Wintereisse, rather than the rarely-used entire song cycles; this leaves room for many more wonderful individual songs not normally found in Schubert collections. As in the other volumes in The Vocal Library, each song features introductory notes including information about the composition, the song's biographical context in Schubert's life, early performances and comments about poets. The contents for the High Voice and Low Voice editions are almost the same: the High Voice volume uniquely includes Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (with removable clarinet part) and Auf dem Strom (with removable horn part); the Low Voice volume uniquely includes Das Abendrot and Romanze. The cover is adorned with a charming 1821 watercolor depicting Schubert and friends at a summer gathering in Atzenbrugg. All songs have been newly edited and researched based on the most current historical material available.

Songlist: Der Wanderer, Sehnsucht, An die Nachtigall, Abendstern, Abschied (Mayrhofer), Am Grabe Anselmos, Am See (Bruchmann), Am See (Mayrhofer), An den Mond (Goethe), An den Tod, An die Entfernte, An die Geliebte, An die Laute, An die Leier, An die Musik, and more

Franz Schubert: 100 Songs

Review: A major new edition, newly researched, with new music engravings, historical notes on each song, a poet index and line by line translations for study. Unlike other Schubert editions, the complete cycles Die Winterreise and Die schöne Müllerin are not included, since in their entirety they are not useful to most singers. (Schwanengesang is included in its entirety.) This leaves room for many more wonderful individual songs. In the introductory notes for each song you will find information about the song's composition, its biographical context in Schubert's life, early performances, and comments about poets. The contents for the High Voice and Low Voice editions are almost the same. The High Voice volume uniquely includes Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (with removable clarinet part) and Auf dem Strom (with removable horn part); the Low Voice volume uniquely includes Das Abendrot and Romanze.

Johannes Brahms: 15 Selected Songs

Review: with CDs of diction lessons and piano accompaniments; includes historical notes, translations and International Phonetic Alphabet With diction lessons recorded by Irene Spiegelman, German diction coach at the Metropolitan Opera, and piano accompaniments recorded by Laura Ward, this collection of the most often taught Brahms songs is an excellent introduction to lieder. The diction for each song is recorded twice: first recited as an actor would speak it, showing flow of the language and mood, followed by a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. This experienced language coach adapts the R in German in the slow versions as recommended for classical singers. She is also very sensitive to liaisons between word sounds in the musical settings.

Songlist: Botschaft, Dein blaues Auge, Die Mainacht, Feldeinsamkeit, Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer, Meine Liebe ist , Mondnacht, O liebliche Wangen, Sapphische Ode, Sonntag, Vergebliches, Von ewiger Liebe, Wie Melodien zieht es mir

Richard Walters (Editor): The Lieder Anthology - Pronunciation Guide

Review: With IPA and word for word translations and CDs of recorded diction lessons This is a companion to The Lieder Anthology, edited by Virginia Saya and Richard Walters, with 65 songs by 13 composers. The diction lessons were recorded by Irene Spiegelman, German coach at the Metropolitan Opera. The diction for each song is recorded twice: first recited as an actor would speak it, showing flow of the language and the mood, followed by a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. This experienced language coach adapts the R in German in the slow versions as recommended for classical singers. She is also very sensitive to liaisons between word sounds in the musical settings.
