Cio-Cio San aria from "Madama Butterfly" Rigina Valieva sings 蝶
Cio-Cio San aria from "Madama Butterfly" Rigina Valieva sings 蝶 www.rigina.info Madama Butterfly (Madame Butterfly) is an opera in three acts (originally two acts) by Giacomo Puccini, with an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. Puccini based his opera in part on the short story "Madame Butterfly" (1898) by John Luther Long, which was dramatized by David Belasco. Puccini also based it on the novel Madame Chrysanthème (1887) by Pierre Loti. According to one scholar, the opera was based on events that actually occurred in Nagasaki in the early 1890s.[1] The original version of the opera, in two acts, had its premiere on February 17, 1904, at La Scala in Milan. It was very poorly received despite the presence of such notable singers as soprano Rosina Storchio, tenor Giovanni Zenatello and baritone Giuseppe De Luca in the lead roles. This was due in large part to the late completion and inadequate time for rehearsals. Puccini revised the opera, splitting the second act into two acts and making other changes. On May 28, 1904, this version was performed in Brescia and was a huge success. The opera is set in the city of Nagasaki. Japan's best-known opera singer Tamaki Miura won international fame for her performances as Cio-Cio San; her statue, along with that of Puccini, can be found in Nagasaki's Glover Garden. Butterfly is a staple of the standard operatic repertoire for companies around the world and it is the most-performed opera in the United States, where it ranks as Number 1 in Opera America's list of the 20 most ...

Dici non vi vuoi ben, non te ne voglio. Dici ch'a un altro pesce hai teso l'amo. Anch'io in altro giardin la rosa coglio. Anco di questo vo'che ci accordiamo: Tu fai quel che ti pare, io quel che voglio. Son libero di me, padrone è ognuno. Servo di tutti e non servo a nessuno. Costanza nell'amor è una follia; Volubile io sono e me ne vanto. Non tremo più scontrandoti per via, Né, quando sei lontan mi struggo in pianto. Come usignuol che uscì di prigionia Tutta la notte e il dì folleggio e canto. Rhyme English (Complete translation by Mario Giuseppe Genesi) You say that you don't love me, so I don't love you... You say that you reject me, so I reject you. You'll have your fish-hook set for other fishes So I will pick new roses in other gardens. Let us agree about it, now, together: You behave as you like an' I'll do as you do. I'll devote to myself, each one commands me, Servant to everyone, but I won't serve for anyone. A constant love affair is only madness Inconstantly I live with pride and boldness I won't be scared of you if I will meet you I won't cry anymore if you shall leave me, just like a nightingale out of his cage All night and day long I'll rejoice and twitter.

Matthew McAllister Courante ~ JSBach
Matthew McAllister Courante ~ JSBach Scottish Classical Guitarist Matthew McAllister working on the Courante from JSBach's first Suite for solo Cello. The Courante is a hugely enjoyable movement to play and later this year I will be making a recording which will include the whole suite. The Guitar you see and hear in this video is by the German maker Gerhard Oldiges, it was originally built for Julian Bream and has a fantastic sound for Baroque music which suits Bach perfectly. www.matthewmcallister.com

(1/2) Weiss - Lute Sonata(Suite) No.25 in g minor / Robert Barto, ba Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687~1750) - Sonate für Laute Nr.25 g-moll - I. Prélude - 00:00 II. Allemande andante - 00:38 III. Passepied - 05:44 IV. Bourrée - 07:52 Robert Barto (Baroque Lute) Silvius Leopold Weiss (12 October 1687 -- 16 October 1750) was a German composer and lutenist. Born in Grottkau near Breslau, the son of Johann Jacob Weiss, also a lutenist, he served at courts in Breslau, Rome, and Dresden, where he died. Until recently, he was thought to have been born in 1686, but recent evidence suggests that he was in fact born the following year. Weiss was one of the most important and most prolific composers of lute music in history and one of the best-known and most technically accomplished lutenists of his day. He wrote around 600 pieces for lute, most of them grouped into 'sonatas' (not to be confused with the later classical sonata, based on sonata form) or suites, which consist mostly of baroque dance pieces. Weiss also wrote chamber pieces and concertos, but only the solo parts have survived for most of them. In later life, Weiss became a friend of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and met JS Bach through him. JS Bach and Weiss were said to have competed in improvisation, as the following account by Johann Friedrich Reichardt describes: "Anyone who knows how difficult it is to play harmonic modulations and good counterpoint on the lute will be surprised and full of disbelief to hear from eyewitnesses that Weiss, the great lutenist, challenged JS Bach, the great ...
