"Finally! One book containing our standard song repertoire and much more--meticulously transcribed and beautifully translated. This is the book we will keep closest at hand and recommend to our students. Times 750, herein lies linguistic access to the lyricism, pathos and drama that is song." --Margo Garrett, Professor of Collaborative Piano and Vocal Arts, The Juilliard School
"Superior, inclusive, informative, and best of all, very well-organized and easy to use! Exploring Art Song Lyrics has my highest recommendation!" --Warren Jones, Pianist,
Faculty, Manhattan School of Music, and The Music Academy of the West
"Exploring Art Song Lyrics by Jonathan Retzlaff and Cheri Montgomery is a valuable resource for voice teachers and students of art song alike. It is the most comprehensive phonetic book on the market and includes over 750 readings of ariette, Lieder and melodies, many of which have never been previously published. I cannot recommend this book highly enough as ancillary material for any voice studio." --Shirley Close, Associate Professor of Voice, Florida State University
"Retzlaff and Montgomery have provided all singers and teachers a very useful resource. The 750 texts are representative of the standard repertoire and the pronunciation guides are well-conceived. This text should be in the library of all who love the singing art." --Stephen King, Professor of Voice, The Shepherd School of Music, Rice University, Houston Grand Opera Studio
