Lotte Lehmann: More Than Singing - The Interpretation Of Songs
As the title suggests, More Than Singing concerns not only music and proper vocal techniques but also life and the transcendent power of art. Lotte Lehmann was among the most eminent lyric-dramatic sopranos of the early twentieth century, especially noted for her passionate and sensitive renderings of lieder. In this guide she distills a lifetime of work, research, and experience into concise, revealing lessons in the interpretation of songs by Schubert, Brahms, Schumann, Haydn, Beethoven, Strauss, Mahler, Debussy, and other masters. "Only that is convincing which is truly felt," declares the author, and her insightful and inspiring manual illuminates the subtleties of tempo, phrasing, enunciation闂傚倷鑳堕崑銊╁磿閺屻儱缁╅柍铏圭亙n the proper pose, facial expressions, and gestures闂傚倷鑳堕崑銊╁磿閺屻儱鏋侀柛鎺斿t enable singers to plumb the true depths of a song and convey its deepest meanings.
