Auteur Rita Benton
Description
A distinguished musicologist explores nineteenth-century French art songs in this fascinating study of the melodies of Berlioz, Liszt, Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Franck, Fauré, and others. The songs are described and analyzed in terms ofstructure, style, prosody, and melo-harmonic features. Sensitive evaluations of the melodies include more than 250 musical examples.

Author Frits Noske was the first musicologist to fully trace the origins and earlydevelopment of the French art songs known as mélodie. He discusses the forms from which the genre evolved, intermediary compositions by Niedermeyer and Monpou, and the effect of Thomas Moore's Irish Melodies. Additionaltopicsinclude Berlioz's contribution to the emerging form, the influence of German song, the special problems of French-language prosody, and the changing role of the accompaniment. Music history and voice majors, musicologists,and music enthusiasts of all ages will appreciate this valuable guide to an unjustly neglected musical genre.
