Books Info:

Arias, Ensembles,  free pdf Conductors John Yaff and David Daniels have created a one-stop sourcebook for orchestras, opera companies, conductors, and librarians programming vocal excerpts (solos, ensembles, choruses, etc.) for concert performance. In this book, one finds detailed information on a vast repertoire of vocal excerpts commonly extracted from operas, operettas, musicals, and oratorios more than 1,500 excerpts from 400 parent works. Information includes basic historical details about the "parent work" as well as extract titles, subtitles, voice types, keys, durations, locations in the original work (with page numbers in both full scores and piano-vocal scores), and exact instrumentation. One especially valuable aspect of this book is the listing of "sources": the publishers that make available the orchestral materials for just the excerpt being programmed, independent of the full parent work.
