MUSICAL THEATRE FOR CLASSICAL SINGERS
edited by Richard Walters
with plot notes on each song and show
available with recorded piano accompaniments
This is the landmark, must-have musical theatre “aria collection” for classical singers! Songs have been carefully chosen, especially suited to the classical voice. The editions treat the music as substantial vocal literature, with insightful editorial suggestions for optional high notes in appropriate spots. Each voice type has a wide variety of literature, from the operetta period on Broadway, to classic musicals, to more contemporary fare. The series presents primarily original keys, but there are also appropriate and practical transpositions in some instances, particularly for mezzo-soprano.
