International Phonetic Alphabet and Recorded Diction Lessons Book/3-CD Pack
This is a companion to The Lieder Anthology, edited by Virginia Saya and Richard Walters, with 65 songs by 13 composers. The diction lessons were recorded by Irene Spiegelman, German coach at the Metropolitan Opera. The diction for each song is recorded twice: first recited as an actor would speak it, showing flow of the language and the mood, followed by a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. This experienced language coach adapts the “R” in German in the slow versions as recommended for classical singers. She is also very sensitive to liaisons between word sounds in the musical settings.
