To restrict performance of the Schumann Lieder to the "familiar forty" is to deprive the singer and pianist of a major reservoir of superior song. Thus Singing Schumann not only takes an in-depth look at the widely performed middle and late Lieder, it also fully reconsiders the early songs. Offering the same readability and informed insights in this volume that distinguished his acclaimed On the Art of Singing (OUP 1996), Miller presents a practical manual to help singers and pianists bring Robert Schumann's Lieder to life in performance. He also provides cogent suggestions for interpretation of all of Schumann's solo and duet songs, useful pointers that are grounded in a thorough understanding of Schumann's compositional style and its full historical background.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...[an] invaluable study....As a keen-eared musical and literary critic, writing confidently yet undogmatically in lithe prose, Miller will be enjoyed every bit as much by the listener...as by the performer....[a] refreshing, demanding and often compelling study."-Hilary Finch, BBC Music
"Singing Schumann is a strikingly brilliant and remarkably enlightening work, skillfully conceived and lovingly written. Unquestionably the most important treatise on Schumann Lieder to emerge in nearly two decades, it is a masterful blending of keen insight and strong conviction." -Gary Arvin, Professor of Vocal Coaching and Repertoire, Indiana University School of Music
"Professor Miller's knowledge of this field is staggering. . . . I marvel at the author's ability to write clearly, engagingly, and often with humor." -William McIver, Professor of Voice, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
"...he provides both a closely reasoned argument...and a deeply felt diary revealing a mature, intellectual, and passionate performer's and pedagogue's life experience with Schubert's songs....An important wake-up call for students of singing and for scholars who have not explored beyond the obvious masterworks of 1840, this book is a new classic, recommended for all academic and professional collections."-Choice
