Strauss Vocal Works

Richard Strauss was one of the greatest vocal composers of the 20th century, and his oeuvre is particularly rich in music for the soprano voice, from opera to lieder.


American Arias

The Boosey & Hawkes catalogue is unparalleled as one of the greatest treasures of contemporary American vocal literature. This major new series celebrates the best in American opera, with favourites and lesser-known gems from Stravinsky's Rakes Progress, John Adams' Nixon in China, Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti and other great operas by Dominic Argento, Ned Rorem and Carlisle Floyd. Suitable for professional and college-level singers, ideal for recitals and auditions, and an essential resource for the study of the American opera repertoire.
Soprano / Mezzo / Tenor / Baritone & Bass



Orchestral Studies

Explore a wide range of albums for the conservatoire instrumentalist, from training guides to recital material.

The Orchestral Violinist

More than just a collection of difficult passages for the aspiring orchestral professional, these extracts from the classical romantic & 20th-century concert repertoire reveal the tricks of the trade. Audition panels are often impressed by concerto performances, but not by performances of orchestral excerpts. And young players have not yet had the experience to know how to impress. The Orchestral Violinist series distils Rodney Friend's expertise by assembling extracts from each work as self-contained studies. Detailed fingerings have been applied, and workable bowings are reproduced in red solving all of the technical problems faced by the player.
