Of all the dark areas of knowledge, bel canto technic must surely rank as one of the most mysterious. This book is an example: it provides a history lesson of bel canto, also an anatomic analysis of how humans project sound. What then about actual technique? Nothing as usual. Ask a voice teacher and you get the same confusion. Even Richard Bonyange (sp?) offers confusing advice: watch and listen carefully to the great bel canto singers. I guess that means fewer open notes, more covered ones, and inject high emotion into your interpretation--probably colouratura,huh. Then why not say so? Also, when is too much really tooo much?

There's a good book to be written to cover the actual information mentioned above, but this book is not the one.

You know, I can't say it was for me. I don't have much to say about the book other than I didn't get much out of it.

Lamperti was my great-great grandteacher, so I have a strong understanding of what's being said here. That helps. He had such a deep understanding of the voice and how we sing best. I like to just dip into it anywhere. The overwhelming simplicity of his approach is wonderfully healthy. When he says that the voice has one register, but three resonances, finally, something that makes sense out of all the head voice/chest voice nonsense. The resonance changes, the voice doesn't. I've studied his style for 40 years. This puts it all together.
