TAMUC Music Faculty Publishes Collection of Songs for Performance

Dr. Leanne Scaggs, instructor of voice and opera at Texas A&M University-Commerce, recently published a performance edition of a collection of songs by classical composer Nina d’Aubigny von Engelbrunner. The collection, titled “Deutsche, Italienische und Französische Gesänge mit Begleitung des Pianoforte”—which is German for “German, Italian and French Songs with Piano Accompaniment”— compiles 12 different pieces for performance by vocalists and makes these late 18th-century works accessible to the modern musician. von Engelbrunner was a German songwriter, performer and music teacher who lived from 1770 to 1847. The new edition is published by ClarNan Editions, a division of Classical Vocal Reprints. You can learn more about these works at the publisher’s website.
