Songwriters of the American Musical Theatre: A Style Guide for Singers (Hardback)

£98.99
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

From the favorites of Tin Pan Alley to today's international blockbusters, the stylistic range required of a musical theatre performer is expansive.











Musical theatre roles require the ability to adapt to a panoply of characters and vocal styles. By breaking down these styles and exploring the output of the great composers, Songwriters of the American Musical Theatre offers singers and performers an essential guide to the modern musical. Composers from Gilbert and Sullivan and Irving Berlin to Alain Boublil and Andrew Lloyd Webber are examined through a brief biography, a stylistic overview, and a comprehensive song list with notes on suitable voice types and further reading.











This volume runs the gamut of modern musical theatre, from English light opera through the American Golden Age, up to the "mega musicals" of the late Twentieth Century, giving today's students and performers an indispensable survey of their craft.
