CLASSICAL OPUS no. 100

Antonio Vivaldi – “Vedro con il mio diletto” from Il Giustino

アントニオ・ヴィヴァルディ – 「イル・ジュスティーノ」オペラ の 「愛する人と共に見る」というアリア

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 5 minutes

 

A forgivingly narcisstic counter-tenor piece of seductive, accretive proximity that few baroque arias afford.  The singer astounds with his superb control of intensity and infallible command of pacing.  Note the zero glottal attack, as if his timbral silk slithered stealthily into our ears.  And the visuals?  I cannot promise that future posts here will quench similarly oxymoronic desires.

A REFLECTION

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops – at all

 

Emily Dickinson, “Hope is the thing with feathers”
