RENATA TEBALDI : VISSI D’ ARTE

Δύσκολο να αποφύγω έστω και σε ένα “συνειρμικό” αφιέρωμα σε γυναίκες καλλιτέχνιδες μια αναφορά στην αγαπημένη μου σοπράνο όλων των εποχών. Aκούμε την Renata Tebaldi στη διάσημη άρια από την Tosca του Puccini. “Έζησα για την τέχνη”
Even on a “associative” tribute to women artists, It is hard to avoid a reference to my favorite soprano of all times. We hear
Renata Tebaldi on the famous aria from Puccini’s Tosca. “I lived for art”.

Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore,
Non feci mai male ad anima viva!
Con man furtiva
Quante miserie conobbi aiutai.
Sempre con fè sincera
La mia preghiera
Ai santi tabernacoli salì.
Sempre con fè sincera
Diedi fiori agli altar.
Nell’ora del dolore
Perché, perché, Signore,
Perché me ne rimuneri così?
Diedi gioielli della Madonna al manto,
E diedi il canto agli astri, al ciel,
Che ne ridean più belli.
Nell’ora del dolore,
Perché, perché, Signore,
Ah, perché me ne rimuneri così?

    Brilliant! I adore the Soprano voice, and this one is new to me.

    Aside, have you heard the young Charlotte Hoather (soprano) sing?

      No but I intent to. Tebaldi was the ultimate rival of Maria Callas and IS my all-time favorite soprano. Her appearance didn’t help her much but that voice was another story.
