PROGRAM NOTES
"Ah, spietato," from Amadigi........Handel
Ah, cruel one, are you not moved by the constant affection that makes me languish for you!
Una ragazza che non e pazza........Galuppi
A girl who is not crazy knows not to let her chance pass. You know it and you will understand me. Even the little ewe lamb and dove would look for a companion. Why would not a girl!
Caldo sangue...........Scaulatti
Hot blood, hot blood, that flows over my breast, give testimony of my love and devotion to my father as I die. May I live again as you flow through the arm of my avenger.
Canzonetta............Scarlatti
He who thinks of falling in love had better think twice. No light thing is it to have your heart wounded or your fancies enslaved to treacherous eyes!
Ridente la calma...........Mozart
Softly awakens the calm in my heart. In it linger no traces of fear or disdain, for behold, thou art come, and, no longer apart, thou wilt bind me to thee with love's loveliest chain.
Un moto di gioia...........Mozart
My heart is bounding with pleasure, the presence of sorrow is lightened by joy; from hope's gentle whispers some solace we borrow, not always of love is grief the alloy.
La Regata Veneziana (in Venetian dialect).....Rossini
A young Venetian girl is watching a gondola race in which her lover is a participant. In these three songs that Rossini wrote in 1835 he takes her through the various stages and excitements of the race.
a) Anzoleta prima delta regata (Before the Gondola Race): On the balcony waves the flag. Come and take it. Don't delay. Run, hurry. You cannot fail me waiting so anxiously. Hurry.
b) Anzoleta durante la regata (There Goes the Regatta): I am here and you are nearing the halfway mark. The northern wind is rising and how I tremble. The current is in your favor. I see him, he is second! Ah, what excitement is in me. Courage, row, summon all your strength and you will be the victor. Your boat is advancing and you look at me.
c) Anzoleta dopo la regata (After the Regatta): Take a kiss, and another one, my darling Momolo. Rest and I will wipe your brow. I knew you would win the prize. I proclaim you the victor. You are without equal in all the world.
Vaga luna che inargenti.........Bellini
Shadowy moon that makes the river bank and flowers like silver and inspires the language of love, you are testimony of my fervent longing for her whom I love. Tell her that even far from her my pain does not lessen and that I cherish the hope she alone is my future.
Per pieta bell' idol mio.........Bellini
Have pity, beloved one, say not that I am ungrateful; unhappy and disturbed-enough the heavens have wrought. If I am faithful to you, if your eyes inflame me-God knows the truth, so does my heart and so does yours!
M'ama, non m'ama..........Mascagni
He loves, he loves me not. What does the oracle of love tell you . . . Now, let's begin again; surely it is that one petal is missing!
Notte .............Respighi
In a fantastic garden the quiet mantle of night rests upon the hidden miseries, the mute dreams, the fleeting joys -death itself.
Ninna nanna di Uliva..........Pizzetti
The composer of this charming lullaby deserves an important place in the history of modern Italian song. Here he has left the impress of a strong individuality, achieving a unity and solidarity of music and lyric. Many of his songs are frequently sung in recital and admired by an international public.
O luna che fa' lume...........Davico
O moon, which gives light to the starlit sky, give light to my love and tell her with what a sad heart she has left me.
A vucchella.............Tosti
The words to this song in Neapolitan dialect are by Gabriele d'Annunzio.
Yes, like a flower is your pretty little mouth, but just a little bit pale. It is like
a damask rose. Give it to me in a kiss, Cannetella! And I shall keep it in a tiny little
vase.
"Sake, sake" )
"Ave Maria" ( om Otello........Verdi
Desdcmona is preparing to retire, assisted by Emilia, her maid. She tells Emilia of an old song she heard in her childhood that keeps coming into her mind. It describes a girl who, like herself, loved too well. The melody of this pathetic song is that of a very old folktune.
When Emilia has bidden her good night and left the room, Desdemona kneels before the image of the Madonna and begins her prayer "Ave Maria," at first in a whispered monotone, then in a noble melody soaring aloft in tones of ecstatic loveliness as she prays for the Virgin's protection.
