Maria Callas, La Mamma Morta (lyrics and video clip)
« on: 01 Sep, 2008, 18:46:22 »


La mamma morta m'hanno
alla porta della stanza mia
Moriva e mi salvava!
poi a notte alta
io con Bersi errava,
quando ad un tratto
un livido bagliore guizza
e rischiara innanzi a' passi miei
la cupa via!
Guardo!
Bruciava il loco di mia culla!
Così fui sola!
E intorno il nulla!
Fame e miseria!
Il bisogno, il periglio!
Caddi malata,
e Bersi, buona e pura,
di sua bellezza ha fatto un mercato,
un contratto per me!
Porto sventura a chi bene mi vuole!
Fu in quel dolore
che a me venne l'amor!
Voce piena d'armonia e dice
Vivi ancora! Io son la vita!
Ne' miei occhi è il tuo cielo!
Tu non sei sola!
Le lacrime tue io le raccolgo!
Io sto sul tuo cammino e ti sorreggo!
Sorridi e spera! Io son l'amore!
Tutto intorno è sangue e fango?
Io son divino! Io son l'oblio!
Io sono il dio che sovra il mondo
scendo da l'empireo, fa della terra
un ciel! Ah!
Io son l'amore, io son l'amor, l'amor
E l'angelo si accosta, bacia,
e vi bacia la morte!
Corpo di moribonda è il corpo mio.
Prendilo dunque.
Io son già morta cosa!
They killed my mother
in the doorway of my room
She died and saved me!!
Later, at dead of night,
I wandered about with Bersi,
when suddenly
a livid glow flickers
and lights were ahead of me
the dark street!
I looked at it!
My birthhouse was on fire!
I was alone!
and surrounded by nothingness!
Hunger and misery!
deprivation and danger.!
I became ill,
and Bersi, so good and pure
made a market of her beauty (prostitution)
for my sake!
I bring misfortune to all who love me!
It was then, in my grief,
that love came to me!
And murmured in a sweet, melodius voice
You must live ! I am life itself!
Heaven is in my eyes!
You're not alone!
My breast can dry your tears
I will walk with you and be your support!
Smile and hope! I'm love itself!
Is all around you blood and mire?
I am divine! I can make you forget!
I am the god who descends to earth
from the empyrean and makes this world
A paradise! Ah!
I am love, love, love
And the angel approaches, kisses me,
and in that kiss is death!
The moribund body is my body.
So take it.
I have already died like that!

Ναι, και αυτό πολύ όμορφο, ευχαριστώ για την υπενθύμιση. Έγινε σουξέ από την ταινία Philadelphia:

Συγκλονιστικά και τα δύο. Και αυτό και το προηγούμενο. (Εκείνο από το οποίο έφτασα εδώ.)

Το προηγούμενο είναι απολύτως άπαικτο... ;)

Σπύρο, μήπως μπορείς να μου πεις ποιανού συνθέτη είναι αυτό το κομμάτι; Οι γνώσεις μου στην όπερα είναι, λίαν επιεικώς, ατελείς...

Οι δικές μου ατελέστερες...
Umberto Giordano


Umberto Menotti Maria Giordano (August 28, 1867 – November 12, 1948) was an Italian composer, mainly of opera.

He was born in Foggia in Puglia, southern Italy, and studied under Paolo Serrao at the Conservatoire of Naples. His first opera Marina, was written for the competition staged by the music publishers Casa Sonzogno for the best one-act opera, remembered today because it marked the beginning of Italian verismo; the winner was Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana. Giordano, the youngest candidate, placed sixth among seventy-three with Marina, which generated enough interest for Sonzogno to commission an opera to be staged in the 1891-92 season.

La mamma morta (The Dead Mother) is an aria of the 1896 opera Andrea Chénier by Umberto Giordano, sung by the role of Maddalena di Coigny (soprano).
It appears in the movie Philadelphia performed by Maria Callas.
