Twenty-Four Italian Songs and Arias& Voicesof theSeventeenth and Eighteenth CenturiesFor Medium High/Medium Low Voices
For over a century, G. Schirmer’s 24 Italian Songs & Arias has acted as a shared starting point for the journey of so many singers around the world. How is it possible that one 100-page book starts journeys that go in so many different ways? Some journeys meander in private, some journeys explode with great success, and others take difficult, joyous, regretful, and unpredictable courses.
Based on the stage show by Brian Lobel, Gweneth-Ann Rand, and Allyson Devenish, 24 Italian Songs & Arias (& Voices) explores this starting point and the voices that were developed beyond it. En route to collecting 24 versions of the 24 classics, we are interested in hearing about the journeys of their singers. Some will be stories of success, some of failure, and some of the gloriously messy in-betweens.
