Quick Overview

Part of the Masters Collection, this is a vocal book devoted to the concert repertoire of famed coloratura soprano Lily Pons (1898-1976). Drawn from the original collections prepared by Frank La Forge, renowned coach and accompanist, who collaborated with Miss Pons on innumerable occasions, this one volume collection provides students and vocal artists with stunning concert pieces in French, English and Italian from all the major style periods. Music by such composers as Handel, Grétry, Mozart, Rossini, Debussy, Chausson, Fauré and Chabrier is included and Frank La Forge’s meticulous notation of Miss Pons’ optional high notes and cadenzas make this volume a remarkable documentation of a style and period of singing of great historical importance. In addition, the extensive biography of Ms. Pons, by Dr. Carrie de Lapp Culver, and the many attractive photographs will make this album a must-have for singers and students of 20th century vocal style.
