For well over a century, the G. Schirmer edition of 24 Italian Songs & Arias of the 17th and 18th Centuries has introduced millions of beginning singers to serious Italian vocal literature. Offered in two accessible keys suitable for allsingers, it is likely to be the first publication a voice teacher will ask a first-time student to purchase. The classic Parisotti realizations result in rich, satisfying accompaniments which allow singers pure musical enjoyment. For ease ofpractice, carefully prepared accompaniments, recorded by John Keene, a New York-based concert accompanist and vocal coach, are available for download. Keene has performed throughout the United States for radio and television. Educated at theUniversity of Southern California, he has taught accompanying at the university level and collaborated with Gian Carlo Menotti and Thea Musgrave on productions of their operas.
