Description

Out Of Print... Each Opera Guide contains the complete text of an opera in the original with a parallel English translation, introductory essays, numerous musical examples and illustrations. The maximum effect with the simplest means could be Puccinis mono, suggests Bernard Keeffe. He analyses different aspects of the score, noting particularly Puccinis genius for orchestration, and the infinitely subtle eflcts that give the melodrama irresistible vitality. Stuart Woolf's scholarly assessment of the significance of the historical themes for Puccini explains many of the motives of the protagonists. Tosca is a supreme example of the power of music to enthral an audience and Bernard Williams discusses the particular quality of its appeal.
