monday music

oy, i actually woke up for a 9am class which i should have known about at the _beginning_ of semester… class was superb, and even more superb is this, yay

also, as i posted over at anik’s, there was a broadcast which i saw last week but missed, but can be re-listened to here. head over to Anik’s for looooovely photos + analysis of the performance.

ps- since the embedding is disabled, while you’re on that YT-ber’s channel, there’s also Anna Bonitatibus in that same concert… and of course we remember Bonitatibus and VK in _that_ other agrippina…

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!
