More About Appoggiaturas

New York-based pianist and vocal coach Jennifer Peterson recently wrote another guest post, this time an article about appoggiaturas in Italian recitatives at Hammermusik. Her approach takes a middle ground between the needs of singers, conductors, and the need for authenticity: 
My approach is influenced primarily by 1) my goal to empower singers to make the music directly from their own instinctual powers, 2) knowing that NO TWO CONDUCTORS WILL AGREE ON WHAT IS CORRECT, and 3) Mrs. Gulli’s “what is more beautiful.”
