High Voice ( Canciones De Espanaby Suzanne Rhodes Draayer, Nico Castel
This book - offered in both high and low voice editions - makes available the passionate, dynamic songs of nineteenth-century Spain. Singers, voice teachers, and aficionados of songs know the great lieder repertoire of Schubert, Schumann, and Brahms, as well as the melodies of Debussy, Massenet, and Gounod. However, the Spanish equivalent to German lieder and French melodie has remained hidden away in the great libraries of Spain. Canciones de España: Songs of Nineteenth-Century Spain, Volume II, makes available twenty-nine songs composed by twenty Spanish composers living and composing in the nineteenth century. Descriptions of Spanish song types typical of the time, explanations of nineteenth-century politics, a thorough pronunciation guide to Castilian Spanish, word-for-word translations, idiomatic translations, International Phonetic Alphabet transcriptions, and short biographies of each composer are all integral to this anthology.
