Music perception

The singing voice is the most subtle musical instrument. A large degree of emotional impact is explained by the fact that both aesthetic and semantic information affect a person’s mind and feelings, the latter being distinguished, as a rule, also by a high artistic value, if outstanding poetic works are chosen for it.

The timbre properties of a singing voice are determined by the composition and intensity of the overtones.

Mezzo-soprano 220 … 1048

Tenor 131 … 587 Continue reading

The freshness of an instant impression was combined in their canvases with the subtlety and refinement of psychological moods. Continue reading
