This review is from: Arias for Soprano - Accompaniment CDs - G. Schirmer Opera Anthology (Audio CD)
This accompaniment CD is a great resource to go along with the aria book. The CD tracks are clearly labeled in the book. The tracks are wonderfully played and easy to follow along with the aria book. In some of the arias, the pianist plays some of the vocal part when the vocal part does not have music underneath it. There's also an "Amazing Slow Downer" in which the tempo of an aria can be adjusted to fit the singers tempo through the computer!! The pianist gives pauses for cadenzas and fermatas. There is also a nice biography about the pianist. This book also has a case for the CDs. This is an amazing money and time saver. Save time and money without having to find a pianist and record them!
