Celebration of Song - High Voice & Piano. This selection of songs is presented as a celebration of the art song and its place in perhaps the most extraordinary period of European musical history; Vienna at the turn of the 20th century. A celebration of song will appeal to singers seeking to explore concert repertoire from this fascinating era, songs from not only the most famous composers but also from their lesser-known contemporaries. Biographical information appears before each song.
"In this volume of nineteen songs by nine composers the focus is on Vienna at the turn of the 20th Century, an extraordinary period in music history. Along with familiar songs by well-known composers at this time, songs by Marx, Alma Mahler, Schreker and Zemlinsky are also featured. For each composer there is a biographical note, along with translations of every song.
This is an interesting anthology providing an excellent overview of this period of unprecedented artistic creativity and originality."
