Opera/Vocal Wednesday:

Cuadro 4: “Yo soy María” - María de Buenos Aires

Text:
Yo soy María de Buenos Aires!
De Buenos Aires María ¿no ven quién soy yo?
María tango, María del arrabal!
María noche, María pasión fatal!
María del amor! De Buenos Aires soy yo!

Yo soy María de Buenos Aires
si en este barrio la gente pregunta quién soy,
pronto muy bien lo sabrán
las hembras que me envidiarán,
y cada macho a mis pies
como un ratón en mi trampa ha de caer!

Yo soy María de Buenos Aires!
Soy la más bruja cantando y amando también!
Si el bandoneón me provoca… Tiará, tatá!
Le muerdo fuerte la boca… Tiará, tatá!
Con diez espasmos en flor que yo tengo en mi ser!

Siempre me digo “Dale María!”
cuando un misterio me viene trepando en la voz!
Y canto un tango que nadie jamás cantó
y sueño un sueño que nadie jamás soñó,
porque el mañana es hoy con el ayer después, che!

Trans:

I am María from Buenos Aires
from Buenos Aires María, don’t you see who I am?
María tango, María from the suburb
María night, María fatal passion
María of love, from Buenos Aires I am!

I am María from Buenos Aires
If in this neighborhood people ask who I am
soon they’ll know
the females that will envy me
and every macho at my feet,
like a mouse in my trap, will fall

I am María from Buenos Aires
I’m the most witch in singing and loving too
If the bandoneon provokes me… tiará, tatá!
I bite hard its mouth… tiará, tatá!
with ten spasms in bloom that I have in my being

I always tell myself “let’s go María”
when a mystery climbs in my voice
and I sing a tango that nobody ever sang
and I dream a dream that nobody ever dreamed
because tomorrow is today with yesterday later, che!

Si dolce e'l tormento

Opera/Vocal Wednesday:

Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi
Si dolce é’l tormento - Quarto scherzo delle ariose vaghezze

Philippe Jaroussky - Countertenor
L’arpeggiata -  Christina Pluhar, cond.

Text:
Si dolce è’l tormento
ch’in seno mi sta,
ch’io vivo contento
per cruda beltà.
nel ciel di bellezza
s’accreschi fierezza
e manchi pietà:
che sempre qual scoglio
all’onda d’orgoglio
mia fede sarà.

La speme fallace
rivolgam’ il piè.
diletto ne pace
non scendano a me.
e l’empia ch’adoro
mi nieghi ristoro
di buona mercè:
tra doglia infinita,
tra speme tradita
vivrà la mia fè

Se fiamma d’amore
già mai non sentì
quel rigido core
ch’il cor mi rapì,
se nega pietate
la cruda beltate
che l’alma invaghì:
ben fia che dolente,
pentita e languente
sospirimi un dì.

Trans:
So sweet is the torment
within my breast,
that I am content
though my lady is cruel.
In heaven let beauty’s
arrogance increase
and pity be absent;
for like a rock batte
by breakers of pride
my love shall stand firm.

Let false hope,
abandon me
joy and contentment
never be mine!
And let the one I adore
deny me the solace
of simple kindness,
despite infinite sorrow,
despite hope betrayed
my love will survive.

If passionate love
was never felt
by that austere spirit
who stole my heart;
if pity is denied
by the cruel beauty
who ravished my soul
it is right that in sorrow
repentant and pining
one day she sigh for me.
