Although not all of the arias in this edition (or any edition for that matter) will fit one particular fach, the range and selection of pieces is really wonderful in this volume. I prefer it to the first volume, only because it has a few lesser known gems that are great audition pieces, whereas the first volume covers mostly pieces everyone has heard a million times before (though there are some of those in this volume too!).

Over all, well edited, wonderful translations and very easy to read.

Great book to have in your library as a singer and a teacher. Has a wide selection of some of the most famous arias along with translations and excerpts to help young singers understand the context of the aria.

I've had this book since I was 17 when I first started studying voice. It's a great resource, especially for beginners who have not yet mastered Italian, French or German. It provides literal translations of every aria which is so important. It is also lightweight but sturdy. My copy is still in great shape. The only bone I have to pick is that the fach varies quite a bit from repertore suited to light lyric sopranos all the way to the dramatic. One singer obviously would not sing all of these arias. However, if your voice grows and matures I guess it's possible to start with a Handel aria in this book and progress to the heavier Puccini, depending on how your career goes. In any event, it's a nice collection of arias and you'll probably find 2 or 3 at least that you'll need at some point which is much better than shelling out cash for the complete scores.

These anthologies are just beyond wonderful. They have a brilliant selection of songs and the piano part is easy to follow if you wish to play and sing at the same time. The translations in the front of the book are clear, and while not underneath the other text in the actual songs, is easily written in if so desired.

How do I love Robert Larsen's anthologies? Let me count the ways. Well...I won't bore you. Just buy this. It is so worth the price for the excellent presentation, piano transcriptions, translations and extras.

Love the selection of arias. Great Editing by an opera conductor who has heard thousands upon thousands of auditions, and who has found these particular pieces to be the Soprano's best friends. As usual with G. Schirmer, a super-useful singing tool, provided by people who know music well.

If you own volume 1... then you need volume 2. As a soprano, I find this book the be very important. I would double-check this performance score with other scholarly editions or even facsimiles. Sometimes the editors add their own markings that aren't in the composers original score. Example: Marietta's lied. Nonetheless-- buy this book. :)
