Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Ravel's "Don Quichotte à Dulcinée": A Comparison of the Interpretation of Three Baritones
by Lyu, Jeong Sang, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 59; 10240202
Abstract (Summary)

Ravel’s last song cycle, Don Quichotte à Dulcinée, was originally composed with words by Paul Morand for the film Don Quixote (1933) directed by G. W. Pabst. Even though Don Quichotte à Dulcinée did not become part of Pabst’s film, the song cycle has become a favorite in the repertoire for baritones and basses.

The following analysis is a comparison of recordings by three baritone performers: Gérard Souzay, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, and José Van Dam.

Understanding a renowned singer’s style is important for anyone who aspires to become a fine singer because one can better identify their own positive and negative habits by studying these stylistic choices.
