Caruso was one of the world's most loved male singers and Tetrazzini was known as an incredible Italian soprano. These 1909 pieces on the art of singing are a must for anyone seriously interested in singing. These incredible musician's speeches are printed here without any editing.

Interesting book with some interesting comments by the old masters. Learned a few things. Also some weird stuff. For example.

I think one of the best exercises for learning to control the voice by first getting control of the breath is to stand erect in a well-ventilated room or out of doors and slowly snuff in air through the nostrils, inhaling in little puffs, as if you were smelling something. Take just a little bit of air at a time and feel as if you were filling the very bottom of your lungs
I found this very interesting. Since I don't read a lot of books in this kind of genre I couldn't rank it compared to others, but the general principles of learning, dedication to and mastering of a set of skills, nerves, performance, etc are all valuable reminders and broadly applicable to any area.

Interesting in the fact that this short book was written by two opera greats of a previous generation, but nonetheless I would consider it less "informative" than a brief manual sprinkled here and there with bits of wisdom.
Such a great book full of info for vocal students/coaches/teachers, it is well written and easy to understand even for someone that has not studied voce
