Connessi al Opera
Francesco Bertini
Music for the palate with Jessica Pratt and Antonino Siragusa
This review refers to Musica per il palato at Associazione Lirica Trevigiana.
The English soprano, Australian by adoption, offers her own acrobatic reading of “Un voce poco fa" from The Barber of Seville, but particularly stuns us in the rondò finale "Tace la tromba altera” from the rare Matilde di Shabran. In the presence of Rossini's writing, Pratt dominates the staff with a uniformly full control and emission: all the high notes, which frequent arrive in the very high register of sopracute, are full-bodied with warm timbre, the center of the voice is sonorous and always in focus, even during the most fast agility. This same impression one also has listening to the Cavatina of the Comtesse Adèle "En proie à la tristesse” from Le Comte Ory. On hearing the naturalness with which the artist rattles off the Rossinian embellishments, the theater explodes in unanimous approval and appreciation.

Excerpts

Ah, vanne, addio - Cingi la benda candida

taken from Adelaide di Borgogna by Gioacchino Rossini

Ami alfine? E chi non ama?

taken from Matilde di Shabran by Gioacchino Rossini
Lyrics
Ami alfine? E chi non ama? Ama l'aura, l'onda, il fiore. Se di te trionfa Amore Non ti devi vergognar. Agli affanni suoi segreti Son soggetti anche i guerrieri, Anche i medici e i poeti Son costretti a sospirar. Non è vero? Edoardo, Corradino, Ginardo, Aliprando e Raimondo Anzi è verissimo. Isidoro Ancor io dovetti amar, E sette anni singhiozzar, E fu cosa da crepar. Coro ed Egoldo Dunque al castel talora Verrem da voi, signora, E niun ci scaccierà? Eguale avete l'anima Del volto alla beltà. Matilde Tace la tromba altera, Spira tranquillità. Amor la sua bandiera Intorno spiegherà. Femmine mie, guardate: L'ho fatto delirar. Femmine, siamo nate Per vincere e regnar. IL Coro e gli Altri Le femmine son nate Per vincere e regnar.

Gioacchino Rossini

Gioachino Antonio Rossini (29 February 1792 – 13 November 1868) was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. His best-known operas include the Italian comedies Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) and La Cenerentola (Cinderella), and the French-language epics Moïse et Pharaon and Guillaume Tell (William Tell). A tendency for inspired, song-like melodies is evident throughout his scores, which led to the nickname "The Italian Mozart". Until his retirement in 1829, Rossini had been the most popular opera composer in history. He is quoted as joking, "Give me the laundress' bill and I will even set that to music."
