Classical Contest Solos - Mezzo-Soprano by : Various Authors
This outstanding series is an encouragement to beginning singers in preparing a vocal solo. Songs have been carefully chosen for each voice type after consulting many official state contest repertoire lists. All the songs; for instance; are on the Texas list. The series will be useful to any novice singer; not just limited to those preparing an actual contest solo. Each volume contains 10 songs: 5 art songs in English; an African-American spiritual; 2 songs in Italian; a song in German and a song in Spanish. There are new editions and engravings of all songs. Biographical information is included on each composer. Interpretive suggestions are given for each song; and the preface on “Learning a Song” is especially instructive. Each volume includes beautiful performances of all the songs by a professional singer; and excellent accompaniments by pianist Laura Ward. Also on the recordings are pronunciation guides in Italian; German and Spanish.
