4.0 out of 5 stars Poet's Love, 23 May 2010
S. E. Smith (England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Poet's Love (Hardcover)
I bought this book because of its insightful comments on Schumann's songs. I have not been disappointed. Gerald Moore was a superb accompanist and knew the songs inside out. His interpretation of the songs is valuable and his suggestions to the singer helpful and constructive. Each song has a paraphrase of the German and his comments on how the song needs to be sung to convey its feeling and music sense. Illustrations are given to clarify his points. His experience leads him to be able to disagree with some usual interpretations and even the composer's direction, particularly in the accompaniment.
