Richard Strauss is one of the great song writers. He was one of first true 'modernist' composers, and many of his vocal works feature extended tonalities and challenging harmonies. This is the third volume in Strauss' Song Album and is scored for Meduim Voice and Piano Accompaniment.
For something described as for Medium Voice, I consider the keys of some of the songs to be rather low. The original high voice key of Schlagende Herzen is G, with a top note of B is just a little high for me, but the medium key in this book is E flat, which I think a bit low for the energy of the song. I was hoping for key of F, which would have been perfect.
It would be helpful if the key of each song could be shown in the item description somewhere. Anonymous
