music to start (working) sunday

Hilary Summers has made a follower out of me since this clip, and to my delight, she just has a recording with Renata Pokupić! yay!

Duetto:
Vitige e Teodata: 
Ricordati, mio ben,
Teodata: 
 che se da me tu parti,
Vitige: 
 che se da te io parto,
Vitige e Teodata: 
 io vivo sol con te.
Vitige: 
Già teco resta il cor
Teodata: 
Già meco resta il cor
Vitige: 
 in pegno del mio amor,
Teodata: 
in pegno del tuo amor,
Vitige: 
di mia costante fè.
Teodata: 
di tua costante fè.
Vitige e Teodata: 
Ricordati, ecc.
(Partono.)
Duet:
Vitige and Teodata: 
Remember, my darling,
Teodata: 
that when you’re parted from me,
Vitige: 
that when I’m parted from you,
Vitige and Teodata: 
I live for you alone.
Vitige: 
Yet my heart will remain with you,
Teodata: 
Yet your heart will stay with me,
Vitige: 
as a token of my love,
Teodata: 
as a token of your love,
Vitige: 
and my constant faith.
Teodata: 
and your constant faith.
Vitige and Teodata: 
Remember, etc.
(They exit.)

let’s hope vivalavoce will broadcast it at some point!

    survived a week where i had to wake up at 9am everyday with all engines running!
    oh Eyes, i hope you didn’t hear any CT in that clip, that’s just Ms. Summers and Pokupic, and yes, indeed, very lovely! 🙂

    Charlotte: i saw Ms. Pokupic once at LA opera, she was really having a ball playing Cherubino, and the singing is very fresh and charming! i also really like these couple clips, one of Cherubino with that nice clarinetist from Rene’s Jacob’s Tancredi, and one singing Sesto where I really love her phrasing and ways of expressing emotion (all in the voice).

    ps- i saw somewhere on that tumblr site recommendation to not wear see-through shirts while singing these arias… should i be very proud to admit i notice less of what i see through her shirt than what the REST of that orchestra was doing in the background?? such amazing concentration and tentative accompaniment, love love!!!

    • I just watched both clips – I like these too! The “parto, parto” has such urgency. I’d love to see her on stage as Sesto. (And I thought her outfits in both clips were great. I mean, yeah, the blouse is see-through, but she’s wearing a bra underneath, so what’s the difference, really?)

    Isn’t the power of suggestion a remarkable thing?
