Popular Ballads for Classical Singers
These wonderfully complex, sophisticated and stylish art music arrangements by composer Richard Walters of classic songs by Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter and George Gershwin are designed to flatter a classical singer and pianist, and have been widely performed in North America and Europe by professionals and advanced students. As one performer put it, the arrangements are so rich they become art songs on their own. Originally published in 1992 as book/cassette packages (now out of print), this reprinted edition makes these distinctive arrangements once again available. CONTENTS: Rodgers songs: The Sweetest Sounds, I Have Dreamed, You're Nearer. Porter songs: I Am in Love, I Concentrate on You, I Hate You, Darling. Gershwin songs: They Can't Take That Away from Me, Nice Work If You Can Get It, A Foggy Day/Love Walked In, Love Is Here to Stay.
