A comprehensive volume on all facets of vocal performance, On the Art of Singing considers in detail established comparative vocal techniques, the specifics of interpretation and communication, the factors that contribute to career preparation and maintainance, and the application of functional information to the art of singing. Topics that most frequently concern singers and teachers at all levels of accomplishment are reviewed. These include an examination of pedagogical approaches to breath management, to laryngeal freedom, and to resonance balance, advice on career building, considerations of style and interpretation, and information on the physiology and acoustics of the singing voice. Data from diverse sources, otherwise inaccessible to the singer, are assembled and interpreted in the light of performance artistry. From his own long and distinguished career as a performer, teacher of singing, and vocal researcher, the author aims at making practical the relationship of technical proficiency to freedom in performance.
