Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In the art of singing, the term "soprano sfogato" (unlimited soprano) designates a singer (contralto or mezzo soprano) capable of by sheer industry or natural talent to extend her upper range and be able to encompass the coloratura soprano tessitura. An alternative concept is that of the "Assoluta". In the early 19th century as well as in the baroque and classical periods, distinctions between voices were not based so much on the range as in the tessitura and color of the voice. There were two main groups: soprano and contralto. Their range was often blurred, relying more on tessitura to cast different roles in opera. Also, in Italian bel canto, the soprano didn't have extremely high notes actually written (often just to high C or Db) and it wasn't until the nightingale type of sopranos such as Jenny Lind, Fanny Persiani, Adelina Patti and her imitators that ending the cabalettas in a climactic high E or Eb became traditional as it was in the french grand opera which became so popular when Rossini moved to Paris.
