Abstract (Summary)

This project provides technical and contextual information in regards to accompanying vocal works and lieder. Discussions in this paper include the responsibilities of an accompanist and what skills an accompanist must have in order to successfully collaborate with a vocalist performing lieder. By using Robert Schumann's song cycle, Frauenliebe und Leben op. 42, as an example, this project illustrates the collaborative skills that are necessary in order for pianists to collaborate and perform this work and other vocal works by understanding phrasing, texture, and text. This work provides evidence of the depth of skill that is required of a pianist artistically, interpretively, and technically.
