Meet the Author


Lilli Lehmann, born in 1848, spent her childhood in Prague learning how to sing from her mother Marie Loewe, a former leading soprano and long-time personal friend of the controversial composer, Richard Wagner. At the age of sixteen, Lehmann debuted as the First Boy in Mozart s The Magic Flute, and in 1870 she joined the Berlin Royal Opera. The Kaiser banned her operatic performances until 1891 as a penalty for her having overstayed her leave in New York, but she triumphed as an international soprano with 170 memorable roles.

While Lehmann goes on a bit much about her thoughts about conservatories, when she moves into the core of the book, the physiology of singing, the presentation is quite nice. In particular, her tips for how singing should feel can start to be felt as soon as they are tried out. Her tips on breathing - you don't need a belly full of air, you need a way of creating a consistent air stream - are great.

A very in-depth study of the physiology involved in singing. I recommend this book for all singers who want to progress, and aren't afraid of getting their hands dirty.
