Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A much-needed guide for singers, vocal coaches, voice teachers, collaborative pianists, and opera and choral conductors. Practical and authoritative, Part One of this pioneering book takes the reader systematically through each sound of the Czech language, enhanced by a recording of native Czech opera singers. The formation of each sound is described, and when useful, compared to English, the Romance languages, German, and Russian. Every sound is assigned an IPA symbol, along with exercises and examples, always with the technical and expressive considerations of the singing voice in mind.

Book News Annotation:

Cheek (performing arts, University of Michigan) describes the nuances of pronunciation for singing Czech operas, oratorios, and songs. He offers phonetic representations of the correct sounds of many famous Czech works, including The Bartered Bride, Rusalka, and The Diary of One Who Disappeared. One part focuses on the sounds of the Czech language, including vowel sounds, consonants, double consonants, assimilation, stress and length, Movarian (the dialect), and Slovak (the language). The other part covers the Czech vocal repertoire, including Smetana, Dvor<'a>k, Jan<'a>'cek, Martinu, and Haas. Appendices list publishers, organizations, and Czech poets. The book is written for native English speakers. An included CD-ROM contains recorded examples.
