S. Marchesi: 20 Vocalises, Op.15 (Medium)
20 Vocalises, Op.15 (Medium)
English translations by George L. Osgood.
As a composer Salvatore Marchesi has published a number of settings of French, German and Italian songs, distiguished for graceful inspiration. But, he is still better known for his Twenty Elementary And Progressive Vocalises the ripe fruit of a long and brilliant career as a teacher of vocal art. The Vocalises may, in particular, be recommended for developing breadth and suavity of tone, together with clearness and elegance in phrasing.
