One of the great all time performances, imo. A lot of people thought he was just lip syncing. I don't think he got enough credit.

eheh... Angela, you're not alone :)

However the phenomenon has been studied and there are those who hypothesize that in many famous classical musical compositions, a constant called "1 / f fluctuation", also known as fractal of Mandelbrot, can be found. If I have not misunderstood, in music it means that the rhythmic, harmonic, melodic and generally compositional structure of a piece moves in a balanced way between a spectrum of predictability and surprise.
Here is an article about it (in Italian)

Yes, his mother is of Sicilian ancestry. Patty, his wife, is the same mix, but in her case it was her father who was Italian. There are so many of these people in the northeast they could be their own ethnic group. :) I think he wound up looking like an Alessandro Del Piero type.

"Who composes music like these [...] it is thought that it feeds on dew or rose petals. Instead no, an example was the episode that happened to Georg when he was in a London tavern. The famous German musician entered the club and ordered a breakfast for three. As the waiter, not seeing the other two diners coming, was slow to serve him, Haendel grumbled:- Hurry up bring me some food.
- And the other two? Replied the waiter.
- Don't worry, the other two are me - the musician addressed him." (cit.)

Loved it, Salento. Very cool. I watched several Capoeira presentations in the Brazilian State of Bahia, that is knowled as the black State of Brazil. The mix of martial art, music and dance is fascinating. When capoeiras show off to the public on the streets of any city in Brazil, everyone stops to watch, even those in a hurry. It is always a big show. Acrobatic movements defy the law of gravity. The sound of “berimbau” and “atabaques” and the dance do not go unnoticed. It’s all very catchy.

He never, ever, gets old for me, yet I didn't appreciate him when I was younger. It was as if "modern" music began with the Beatles. :) Only later did I start to "get" it.

I could fall asleep to his voice, and I sometimes do, and I mean that in a good way. :) His voice in these kinds of songs can be so warm, so soothing, and the lyrics, though simple, so deep and true.

https://youtu.be/WREjVCvjc_Y

Translation in English

In the slums, in the Senate
Dirt in every corner
Nobody respects the Constitution
But everybody believes in the nation's future
What country is this?
What country is this?
What country is this?
In the Amazonas, in the Araguaia, in the Baixada Fluminense
In Mato grosso, in Minas Gerais and in the Northeast it's just peace
In death I rest but the blood runs loose

Staining the papers, faithful documents
For the boss's rest
What country is this?
What country is this?
What country is this?
What country is this?

It's anything but Third World

A joke overseas
But Brazil will get rich
We'll bill a million
When we sell all the souls
Of our natives in an auction
What country is this?
What country is this?
What country is this?
What country is this?

Nas favelas, no senado
Sujeira pra todo lado
Ninguém respeita a constituição
Mas todos acreditam no futuro da nação
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?
No Amazonas, no Araguaia, na Baixada fluminense
No Mato grosso, Minas Gerais e no Nordeste tudo em paz
Na morte eu descanso mas o sangue anda solto
Manchando os papéis, documentos fiéis
Ao descanso do patrão
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?

Terceiro Mundo se for

Piada no exterior
Mas o Brasil vai ficar rico
Vamos faturar um milhão
Quando vendermos todas as almas
Dos nossos índios num leilão
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?
Que país é esse?

@Angela, surely the fact of being of Jewish origin weighed, but also a certain useless and gratuitous criticism towards him, accused of being substantially a conservative, an author little innovative or even superficial in comparison with his other contemporaries of age romantic.
In reality he has had so many merits, including being the most important rediscoverer of Bach and reconciling the baroque / classical musical forms with the new romantic language.
You can enjoy a refinement and delicacy in his compositions - real bijoux - which is difficult to find in other authors. Thus he himself declared:

"People often complain that music is too ambiguous, that what they should think when they hear it is so unclear, whereas everyone understands words. With me, it is exactly the opposite, and not only with regard to an entire speech but also with individual words. These, too, seem to me so ambiguous, so vague, so easily misunderstood in comparison to genuine music, which fills the soul with a thousand things better than words. The thoughts which are expressed to me by music that I love are not too indefinite to be put into words, but on the contrary, too definite."

I can only agree :)

Hence why I like his music so much, more than many of the "Romantic" composers.

I'm sure what you're saying is true in a general sense outside of Nazi Germany, but he, like other Jewish composers, and like Jewish artists, was banned, not just criticized, and it was indeed because he was Jewish.

Such stupidity. Music, the visual arts, literature, as well as science, have no "race" or "ethnicity"; they are the flowering of human genius and should only be celebrated.

When the Jewish orchestra at Theresienstadt wanted to convey their horror and grief at what was happening to them and to their compatriots all over Europe they chose Verdi's Requiem.

The theatrical trailer from the documentary called: The Defiant Requiem:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgimWmMqav4

Starving, abused, terrified people found a voice, comfort, and strength in the music of an Italian Catholic. That's what the arts are all about. It's heartbreaking and inspirational all at the same time.

It's amazing how often this song, the title phrase, bursts into my consciousness when I read the news or whatever. The same is true for a lot of Broadway hits like "Money makes the world go round": it just is always there. Others: "A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down", "Life is a Cabaret", "Memories", "Don't Rain on my Parade", "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered", "Wouldn't it be loverly", "The Impossible Dream", "I am what I am".

Men should listen to more Broadway musicals. :)

Love of My Life-Queen

I wonder if Mary ever regretted not staying with him. I wouldn't think it's much different from having a husband who's a serial womanizer, except, of course, for the Aids danger, which they didn't even know about. Some women do it even today, and for lesser men who don't love them the way he loved her. He was so damn special: looks (despite the overbite), charisma, humor, sincerity, sweetness, in addition to all that talent and fame.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECX9efQWOOc

This popped up on my feed: 65,000 people in London started singing all the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody while waiting for a Green Day concert to start. It's amazing: he's been dead for almost 30 years. I guess people would do it for Elvis, or Frank Sinatra. I can't imagine them singing a 6 minute song for very many other deceased singers. I got emotional even after all these years.

Elvis Presley has sold over 1 BILLION records. I didn't get it when I was young, because he was an "older generation's" music. I was clearly a fool.

It isn't just his more than two octave range, or the power of his voice, or his technical control; it's the "quality" of his voice: warm, smooth, sincere. He could also sing in any style: raucous blues and rock, soulful gospel, and opera like smoothness in the ballads.

All this, and completely untaught. He couldn't read or write music, but he could duplicate anything he heard. No voice coaches to explain what he should do, just perfect pitch and a natural, inborn ability to learn from the masters. Only recently did I learn that the personal record collection of the younger Elvis included:

Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, gospel and black music. There was rhythm and blues artist Joe Turner, Aretha Franklin, Mahalia Jackson, Chuck Berry, the Righteous Brothers … and even Duke Ellington and Glen Miller.

There was also a lot of Mario Lanza, the very popular "bel canto" classical tenor.

"Opera star Kiri Te Kanawa told Michael Parkinson (https://alainrozan.wordpress.com/) that the young Elvis had the greatest voice she had ever heard. The tenor Placido Domingo similarly enthused in an interview in Spanish magazine Hola in 1994: “His was the one voice I wish to have had.”"

Poet Laureate of Genova: Fabrizio de Andre-

Creuza de ma, composed and sung in the dialect of Genova. This seems to me the best translation:

"
Shadows of faces, faces of sailors,
where do you come from, where is it you’re going?



From a place where the moon shows itself naked
and the night has pointed a knife at our throat,



and God remains to mount the donkey
and the Devil is in heaven and makes his nest there,



we come in from the sea to dry out at Andrea's place,
at the fountain of the doves in the stone house.



And in the stone house, whoever will be there
in the house of Andrea, who isn’t a sailor -



people of Lugano, faces like pickpockets,
those who prefer the wing of the sea bass,



family girls, smelling good,
whom you can watch without condoms.



And to these empty stomachs, what will he give them?
Things to drink, things to eat,



fried fish, a white Portofino,
lamb brains in the same wine,



four-sauce lasagna to cut,
sweet and sour hare-of-the-tiles pie.



And in a boat of wine we’ll navigate the perils,
emigrants of laughter with nails in our eyes,



until the morning grows able to gather him up,
brother of the cloves and of the girls,



master of the rope, rotten from water and salt
that binds and carries us on a cobbled sea path"

Adriana Calcanhotto - Maresia - I dedicate this song to all who have the spirit of a sailor. Below is the English translation and then the original Portuguese lyrics and video:

English translation:
Sea smell

My love is gone
Took my identity with him
Now, I'm not so sure where I am
Nor where the reality is


Ah if only I were a sailor
I should be the one who'd walk away
My heart, then,
Would not have broken in pieces


But If it would, I could mend it, though,
With [a glue from] the smell of the seas
I would love and unlove
Without any regret,
But in a poetic manner


Ah if only I were a sailor
I would have a sweet sweet home
There would not be only Rio de Janeiro
But the immensity and the sea


The West, the East, the North and the South
The very place where a man stands
When the sun raises in the blue of the sky
Or when there is moonlight on the sea


I would not look for comfort
Nor would save money
I would have one love for every port
Ah if only I were a sailor
I would not care for money
Ah if only I were a sailor

Portuguese original lyrics:

Maresia

O meu amor me deixou
Levou minha identidade
Não sei mais bem onde estou
Nem onde a realidade
Ah, se eu fosse marinheiro
Era eu quem tinha partido
Mas meu coração ligeiro
Não se teria partido
Ou se partisse colava
Com cola de maresia
Eu amava e desamava
Sem peso e com poesia
Ah, se eu fosse marinheiro
Seria doce meu lar
Não só o Rio de Janeiro
A imensidão e o mar
Leste oeste norte e sul
Onde um homem se situa
Quando o sol sobre o azul
Ou quando no mar a lua
Não buscaria conforto nem juntaria dinheiro
Um amor em cada porto
Ah, se eu fosse marinheiro

You're welcome, Angela.


Probably it'so, I don't know if it's my number one, but it's certainly one of my favorites for inspiration and expressive power.

Nothing detracts from the beauty of the so-called Ave Maria by Schubert and Gounod, which however were not born as such: the first is actually the "Ellens dritter Gesang", the other is a re-adaptation of the first prelude of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier to which Gounod added the melody.
I will be banal, but a "Hail Mary" that is dear to me is the one traditionally attributed to Arcadelt, although it too is a rehash by a romantic French composer, Pierre-Louis Dietsch


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us4mCpNMzc0


Perhaps another piece that gives me emotions similar to those of Rachmaninov's composition is Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium.
The last bars really seem to come from another world... :)

Salento, as much as I love Queen, I'd forgotten about their Christmas song. That Sheryl Crow and Eric Clapton one is just FABULOUS! That's going on the Christmas play list. :)

Jovialis, I love him, and that's one of the best O Holy Night's I've ever heard. I'm officially jealous. :)

Tomorrow night is the Messiah Sing Along, though, and Christmas is getting a bit away from me this year, so I had to pass. I've just washed my hands, but the rest of me is covered in flour, sugar and butter. :)

Good pop singer but he has to avoid opera because he can't, he has a very thin voice, maybe he can do some leggiero tenors roles (though he hasn't the practice), he surely can't do lyric tenor arias properly or heavier parts.

"I don’t wish you all sorts of gifts.I just wish you, what most people don’t have:
I wish you the time to be happy and to laugh
and if you use it, you can make something out of it.
I wish you the time for your doings and thinking,
not only for yourself, but also to give away.
I wish you the time – not to hastle and run,
but the time to know how to be contented.
I wish you the time – not to pass just like that.
I wish that some of it may be left for you
as a time to marvel and (as a time) to trust,
instead of just looking at the time on your watch.
I wish you the time to reach for the stars,
and the time to grow, that means to mature.
I wish you the time to hope anew and to love.
There is no sense in putting this time off.
I wish you the time to find yourself,
to see the happiness in each day and each hour.
I wish you the time also to forgive.
I wish you: the time to live."

She turned me on to this restaurant in Harlem where you can go to have breakfast on a Sunday morning and listen to live Gospel singing. Great, both the food and the music.

I showed someone on the Board, an Italian, a picture of my husband with one hand on the fireplace mantel and one in his pocket, all dressed up in a tux ready to go out, and he said something to the effect that he looked like he never left Italy, and particularly Southern Italy. It's a strange thing how really Southern Italian he is down to his bones, and he can't speak a word of the language, and doesn't even think of himself that way.

I don't think it's just Italian. :) I've seen it in Greeks too. Maybe it's a Mediterranean thing; too much of their mothers telling them they're God's gift to the earth, not just women. :)

Jimmy Caan got it down pat in The Godfather, and Andy Garcia too.

Translation of the song...sounds SO much better in Italian.


With his curly hair,
a brigand's eyes and sunshine in his face.
Every girl melts upon seeing him pass
with the cigarette in his mouth
a hand in his pocket
and he goes on, cocky, all around the city


The saracen, the saracen
is a handsome lad
The saracen, the saracen
makes all the girls sigh
he has a beautiful face and a good heart,
he knows how to make love.
He’s a rascal, he’s a seducer
if you look at him you fall in love.
And a blond poisoned herself
and a brunette killed herself.
Is he poison or a disaster?
What is he doing to women?
The saracen, the saracen
is a handsome lad
he has a beautiful face and a good heart,
all the girls fall in love


But a redhead, the other night
with a kiss and an apology
has stolen your heart and soul;
saracen you're not yourself any longer


The saracen, the saracen
is a handsome lad
The saracen, the saracen
all the girls fall in love

I thought that's the stance you meant, it's in the blood, youthful arrogance of a good-looking guy from the Med. I have seen it in Spain also.

Talking about mothers telling their sons that they are god's gift to women, there is a joke about that.

I can prove that Jesus Christ was Greek in four simple points:
1. He lived with his parents till he died
2. He had the same profession as his father
3. He thought his mother was a virgin and finally
4. His mother thought he was God!

Thank you for taking the time to translate!

Oh wow!

That video won't play here in the US, but here's one that does...I absolutely love this song...O Sarracino. I like Gigi D'Alessio's version better, however.

I can see him in my mind's eye clear as day. He looks like Raoul Bova to me. Well, Raoul Bova always comes to my mind. :)

O Malandrino...It's weird about that stance. My husband has it, but how could he have learned it? Is it coded in the dna? :)

Surely there are musical genres including the Neapolitan song that lend themselves to be reworked in jazz/blues/soul mode... Renzo Arbore in this sense is a genius and often creates pieces that are as much fun as musically impeccable :)

I never really knew any Neapolitan music until I met my husband, then had to have it translated into Italian for me, but I became a complete convert. I love the whole canon. It can lend itself to anything: jazz/soul, as was said, rock, or ballad/opera as is often the case. There's a reason all the great classical singers produce versions of these dialect songs.

Jonas Kaufman: Ungrateful Heart
Core 'Ngrato
Catari, Catari,

Why do you say these bitter words to me
Why do you speak and my heart
torments me, Catari
Don't forget that I've given you my heart, Catari
Don't forget.
Catari, Catari, what do you mean by
these words that upset me?
You don't think about my pain
You don't think, You don't care.
Heart, ungrateful heart
You've stolen my life
Everything's over
But you don't even think about it anymore
Catari, Catari

You don't know that I even went to church
I entered and prayed to God, Catari,
and even said to the confessor
I'm suffering for that one there.
I'm suffering,
You don't know how I'm suffering
Suffering all these tortures.
And the confessor, a holy person
said My son, leave her alone, let her be.
Heart, ungrateful heart,
You've stolen my life
Everything's over
And you don't even think about us anymore"

I think that's called being emotionally "open" about your feelings. :)

As for "malandrino", for those who don't know, it means a man who isn't "bad", or, goodness knows, a criminal, but is a bit of a "rogue" to use and old English word, especially with women. "Ladies man" has the wrong connotation.

Sure, Angela. Undoubtedly the Neapolitan song has its "blatant" component which makes it well executable in opera performances.

I have a soft spot for this piece - with this specific recording - which is nothing but a prayer with which a lover begs his beloved to be able to go to bed with her one more night.
The theme of a song that is now 120 years old is skilfully mixed with the powerful sounds of Afro-American music, and with some classical, Iberian and Arabic reminiscences...

Between weddings, Baptisms, First Communions, Italian American Bar Association Dinner Dances, and even at a local country club whose membership is heavily Southern Italian laden, I must have heard this song a hundred times by now. :)

This is one time we have to disagree, though. :) For me, the best version of a lot of these songs is almost always the one by Roberto Murolo in his prime.

Heartbreakingly beautiful, imo.

For those who might like to know the words.
Arápete fenesta,
famme affacciá a Maria,
ca stóngo 'mmiez'â via
speruto d''a vedé.
Open up window,
let Mary appear,
I'm in the middle of the street
waiting to see her.



Nun trovo n'ora 'e pace,
'a notte 'a faccio juorno,
sempe pe' stá ccá attuorno,
speranno 'e ce parlá.
I can notfind an hour's peace,
live the night as it was day,
to always stay here around,
waiting to talk to her.



Oj Marí, oj Marí,
quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
famme addurmí,
nu poco abbracciato cu te.
Hey Mary, hey Mary
how much sleep I lose for you,
let me fall asleep,
just a little, embraced to you.



Oj Marí, oj Marí,
quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
famme addurmí,
oje Marí, oje Marí.
Hey Marie, hey Marie
how much sleep I lose for you,
let me fall asleep,
Hey Marie, hey Marie



Pare che giá s'arape
na sénga 'e fenestella,
Maria, cu 'a manella,
nu segno a me mme fa.
It appears that now opens
a slit in the window,
Mary, with her little hand,
makes me a nod.



Sòna chitarra mia!
Maria s'è scetata!
Na scicca serenata
facímmole sentí.
Play, o my guitar!
Maria woke up!
A beautiful serenade
let's play for her.



Oj Marí, oj Marí,
quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
famme addurmí,
abbracciate nu poco cu te.
Hey Marie, hey Marie
how much sleep I lose for you,
let me fall asleep,
just a little, embraced to you.



Oj Marí, oj Marí,
Quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
famme addurmí,
oje Marí, oje Marí!
Hey Marie, hey Marie
how much sleep I lose for you,
let me fall asleep,
Hey Marie, hey Marie

Another one of my favorites is Vieni Sul Mar. I really like the melody. There used to be a version by Murolo on youtube but I don't see it now.

This version is by a not very well known Argentinian tenor but it has the benefit of a good onscreen English translation, and the singer doesn't "over-belt" it, if you know what I mean. It still sounds intimate.

They know how to get you, the Neapolitans. :)
