Brazilian Portuguese for Singers is a much-needed guide for singers, vocal coaches, voice teachers, and opera and choral conductors. Practical and authoritative, the first part of this pioneering book offers readers a look at Portuguese as spoken in Brazil, providing a detailed description of the pronunciation and singing in the language. Part two provides a survey of major art song composers with a selected list of their works ideal for the classical singer of Brazilian Portuguese repertoire. Part three adventurously offers singers of popular music the name and repertoire of key modern pop composers for this language tradition. In the fourth part, readers have access to a complete song list for each of the featured composers, as well as background information on the poets behind the art song selections and a list of publishers of Brazilian Portuguese popular and classical vocal music.
