ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vaccai Practical Vocal Method (Piano Accompaniments) with Melody Added , for High Voice, (With Transpositions) by Xavier Palacios offers high quality backing tracks for the classical singer to suit your voice perfectly and to follow the evolution of your vocal range or needs. This album is suitable for High Sopranos, Sopranos and Tenors (High). If you want to sing in the Middle Range of your Voice, use rather Vaccai Accompaniments for Soprano and Tenor (First Lesson in C Major).

Matching Editions are:
Schirmer Vaccai Pratical Method for High Soprano (Schirmer Ed. No. 278. (First Lesson in D Major.
Ricordi Vaccai Pratical Method for Soprano and Tenor (First Lesson in D Major).
Peters Vaccai Practical Method for High Voice (Hohe Stimme) (First Lesson in E-Flat Major).

Vaccai Practical Vocal Method (Piano Accompaniments) with Melody Added , for High Voice, with transpositions" by Xavier Palacios offers high quality backing tracks for the classical singer to suit your voice perfectly and to follow the evolution of your vocal range or needs. The High Soprano Vocal Line is played on the Piano and Added to the Accompaniment .

Please note that the tracks in this Album with Vocal melody added matches exactly the album with accompaniment only : "Vaccai Practical Vocal Method (Piano Accompaniments)vfor High Voice with transpositions". The accompaniment is exactly the same in this two albums, only the Soprano Vocal Line is played on the piano and added to the Accompaniment, allowing the singer to focus on Voice Production and on the Lyrics (Vaccai has chosen Metastasio poems exclusively).

The Voice of a singer singing the melody with the accompaniment would disturb the practising singer who has to be "his own teacher" . Sometimes the melodic line played by the piano is interrupted for breaths, or cesurae, or articulation (slightly detached notes). For instance after two slurred notes of equal value (see lesson XIII). The ability to "articulate" i.e to sing slurred notes alternating with detached notes, pausing briefly without breathing, etc... is very important. It develops the mechanics of the vocal folds closing properly before singing the following note, in combination with the muscles of the Larynx and the abdominal muscles. We hope that these Vaccai series will be helpful to Classical Voice Teachers and Singers as well. This edition is faithful to Ricordi Original Edition of Vaccai Practical Method.

You can use freely these accompaniments for either private or public rehearshal or concert performance (with the singer). You can use them for radio broadcast if you mention that all accompaniments are by Xavier Palacios. For Tv broadcast you will need to ask a written permission to Xavier Palacios (The artist and Producer).
Xavier Palacios studied at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris de Paris with Antonio Ruiz Pipo, a pupil of Alfred Cortot, and Billy Eidi, a renowed accompanist of French song. He also studied Musical analysis with Ginette keller, a pupil of Nadia Boulanger. He has given many recitals in France and has been the assistant and accompanist of Laurence Russel Albert (Pushkin Prize, Metropolitan Opera) for a few years.

This volume contains the Piano Accompaniments for a transposition of the Original Vaccai Practical Vocal Method, which is now in the Public Domain, in the High Vocal range. It is perfectly suitable for Sopranos and Tenors.
This volume is part of a complete Edition of Vaccai Practical Method Accompaniments, matching the Vocal Range and key of almost every Authoritative Edition.

We prefer to classify here the Vocal range in three main sections: High, Medium and Low, instead of : Soprano, Mezzo, Baritone, etc...It seems that Vaccai was concerned, when adopting the "Medium range" (not higher than F5 for female voices, F4 for male voices), with securing the "Mixed Voice" ("Voce Mista"), and the subsequent use of the precise amount of breath and energy (going from a note to another) to produce a proper, "Bellinian", legato. Of course, it is very useful to transpose this "Practical Method" in the High range for Sopranos and Tenors, and in the Low range for Mezzos, Bass Baritones, and Contraltos.
Some "Mezzo Editions" in Italy use the "Soprano" key chart adopted by other Western Editions. Some "High Voice" Editions don't adopt the same key chart. This Edition recoups all keys used in the authoritative "High Voice" Editions. Last, but not least, Vocal range is only one aspect of Voice classification. Choose your repertoire following the "nature" of your Voice, or your "Voice type" if you like, and the advice of your teacher.
