For me, nothing is as important as a song-a crystallized moment of history, a window into the human heart. For a beginner who wants an overview of songs written for the concert stage, Margaret Olson has compiled it all into one compact guide. This elegantly written book directs the ear and the mind of the reader straight to the beauties of this art form. -- Steven Blier, artistic director and cofounder, New York Festival of Song (NYFOS), and faculty member, Juilliard School
The art song recital made easy to understand and down to earth. This book is a helpful way to experience the aspects of an intimate live performance through the pairing of voice and piano. The recordings, song choices, and singers will stretch your imagination and inspire you to be a creative performer, programmer, and listener. -- Julie Simson, professor of voice, Rice University
Margaret Olson's Listening to Art Song is an indispensable volume for all who seek a more personal connection with this most universal of musical expressions. . . . A must-have, go-to resource!
