Editorial Reviews


"[An] elegant and lucid translation. This is an imaginative and valuable book, the fruit of profound study, and can be strongly recommended, as much to singers as to all others concerned with the period."--Music & Letters.

Format: Hardcover
It is impossible to find in the original language The History of Bel Canto. It is only available in some Conservatory Library.
This History is foundamental to clearly understand the evolution of the several technics of singing through the centuries. Rodolfo Celletti is probably the most reliable living "expert" of lyric voices. By reading his works you can distinguish a real, good operatic voice from trivial and bad voices.
