Voices: Defining Moments in Music and Theater (Hardcover)
Edited by Christine Cerletti & Thomas Voigt

In this volume, 70 performing artists share memories of those encounters with classical music and theater that forever altered their lives. These memories often served as a catalyst for their professional development or as a midcareer intervention – a nudge to follow an impulse and shift directions. 

Throughout these conversations – facilitated by Swiss soprano Christine Cerletti, and writer, filmmaker, presenter, and vocal coach Thomas Voigt – pivotal moments from music and theater history are interwoven into the artists’ personal histories. 

The voices represented include Marco Armiliato, Cecilia Bartoli, Piotr Beczala, Diana Damrau, Lise Davidsen, Brigitte Fassbaender, Renée Fleming, Ferruccio Furlanetto, Elina Garanca, Jonas Kaufmann, Barrie Kosky, Christa Ludwig, Anne Sofie von Otter, Antonio Pappano, Anita Rachvelishvili, Sondra Radvanovski, Golda Schultz, Anja Silja, Bo Skovhus, Frederica von Stade, Nina Stemme, Bryn Terfel, Christian Thielemann, Pretty Yende, and Sonya Yoncheva, along with many more.

Voices illustrates their accounts with more than 400 photographs. James Jolly, British editor-in-chief of Gramophone, contributes a foreword, and German music critic Jürgen Kesting contributes texts.

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
