art songs and arias


Translation, Pronunciation and analysis

When you prepare a new aria or song you have to tackle many issues apart from the music:

  • Translation of the text (both, word-by-word and literal)
  • Get clear on German diction. This does not only include the pronunciation of each sound and word but also speaking rhythm and language melody.
  • Interpretation of the (usually poetic) language by analysing the use of words and ambiguous meaning in combination with the use of musical settings.

The perfect preparation!
