Puccini's non-operatic songs, Arie da camera e da chiesa for voice and piano, have never before been collected--many until now have never been published. They cover the entire span of the composer's life: the earliest was written when Puccini was in his teens, the latest when the composer was in his sixties. Working from musical manuscripts, letters, documents, and other sources, Michael Kaye shows Puccini--whose music is the mainstay of every opera house in the world--in a new light. The words and music of fifteen songs, including little-known music from the operas Edgar and La Rondine, are provided. More than a dozen fascinating--some rare--photographs give an extra dimension to the book.
