Sample text

In his interpretation, Figaro had his plan, and nothing could possibly derail it — or so he thought. The interpretation worked extremely well. Even those in the audience who spoke not a word of Italian enjoyed the cocksure way in which he did it. Composers almost never specify a speed for recitative lines! They assume that the singer will understand every word they are singing and inflect them accordingly. There are, however, questions that arise. One of the first questions concerns written rests in the recitative.

The required volume for recitative is not great — in fact, most singers tend to oversing secco recitative. Even Mozart complained that singers “sang” too much, so the problem is not new. However, the solution is not talking on pitches, because a voice must be supported and produced properly in order to project to the back wall. When a voice is accompanied only by the continuo, great volume is simply not required. The easiest solution to the problem is the elimination of legato “line,” the lyric binding together of notes in a smooth and uninterrupted phrase.

Even great singers have confessed to rote learning. However, if a singer of the role of Adina sings “d’isparmi” instead of “d’ispirarmi” in the first duet with Nemorino, it is simply careless study and must be corrected. Some corrections are necessary, too, where doubled consonants make a difference. In Le Nozze di Figaro, if Cherubino (in “Non so più”) sings “ogni dona” instead of “ogni donna,” the difference is important. ” While Cherubino may indeed think of every woman as a gift, it is still not what he is singing.
