SINGER AND ACCOMPANIST The Performance of Fifty Songs by GERALD MOORE. PREFACE: IT has not been my intention in the following pages to attempt critical analyses of the fifty songs under review although an analytical note may occasionally have crept in but rather to explain how the executants might sing and play them above all to suggest lines they could think along when practicing, rehearsing, and performing them. I hope the word suggest 5 will be noted. I have used it advisedly for there are many roads to heaven and while I am confident that my road will not lead to destruction, I do not claim that it is the only way. Let him who disagrees with my ideas make his own investigation and find out what suits him best. I shall be happy if this book has this stimulating effect. I believe that equal consideration has been given to the two partners, but if more attention than is usual in a book on song interpretation has been bestowed on the accompaniment I make no apology it has been done for the good of the song and should prove of ultimate benefit to the singer. There is no law, human or divine said Ernest Newman in 1907, to compel the composer to limit his expressiveness to the voice alone. The Schubert, Wolf, Faure songs to mention three composers at random included here can be called great songs. To the question What are Beethovens Mailied, Rachmaninoffs Spring Waters, Hahns Offrande doing in such distinguished company 5 I would answer that the first song presents difficulties to the singer a the second teases the pianist, while the Hahn song is intriguing if only for its wide dissimilarity to the undeniably finer settings of the same poem by Debussy and Faur6. The only rule I observed when selecting my fifty songs was that they should be interesting either for their intrinsic worth or for the problems they pose for the singer or the accompanist or both partners. The reader who is indulgent enough to imagine there is any benefit to be reaped by a study of this book, should dip into it rather than attempt to read it steadily from cover to cover. Let him see which of these songs he possesses and then after numbering the bars on his score to help him follow me on my wanderings through the song have his music beside him as he reads. He will thus be in a much better position to laugh with me or at me to see how unerringly I hit the nail on the head or how lamentable is my aim

Im Jahr 1918 wurde mit dem Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen in Wien eine neuartige und bis heute konzeptionell spannende Veranstaltungsform etabliert. Eine in der Repertoirepflege dominierende Praxis war jene der künstlerisch hochqualitativen Bearbeitung von groß besetzten Werken für Klavier und kleinere Ensembles. Diese historischen Voraussetzungen dienten als Inspiration für die vorliegende Produktion mit Werken von Gustav Mahler und Alban Berg, hier in einer Neuinterpretation durch drei Komponisten unserer Zeit. Rainer Riehn konnte aufgrund seiner Ergänzungen an Schönberg-Bearbeitungen von Mahler-Orchesterliedern eine reiche Erfahrung mit der Bearbeitungspraxis des Vereins gewinnen und interpretiert Mahlers Kindertotenlieder neu. Alban Bergs Violinkonzert, ein musikalisches Epitaph, wurde durch den Komponisten und Arrangeur Andreas N. Tarkmann für das Linos-Ensemble in eine neue Klanggestalt gebracht. Die kammerorchestrale Einrichtung der Altenberg-Lieder Bergs schließlich geht auf den dänischen Komponisten und Musiktheoretiker Diderik Wagenaar zurück
