Η άρια κονσέρτου είναι σύνθεση για τραγουδιστή και ορχήστρα, προορισμένη να παρουσιάζεται αυτόνομα στη διάρκεια συναυλίας ή ρεσιτάλ.
Ακούμε την κορυφαία αυστρο-αγγλικής καταγωγής σοπράνο Elisabeth Schwarzkopf στην περίφημη κονσέρτο άρια “Ch’io mi scordi di te? … Non temer, amato bene” του W.A. Mozart.

Concert aria is a composition for singer and orchestra, written to be performed autonomously during a concert or recital.
We hear the prominent Austro-British soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf in W.A. Mozart’s famous concert aria “Ch’io mi scordi di te; … Non temer, amato bene”.

Ch’io mi scordi di te?
Che a lui mi doni puoi consigliarmi?
E puoi voler che in vita?
Ah no! Sarebbe il viver mio di morte assai peggior.
Venga la morte, intrepida l’attendo.
Ma, ch’io possa struggermi ad altra face,
Ad altr’oggetto donar gl’affeti miei, come tentarlo?
Ah, di dolor morrei!
Non temer, amato bene,
Per te sempre il cor sarà.
Più non reggo a tante pene,
L’alma mia mancando va.
Tu sospiri? O duol funesto!
Pensa almen, che istante è questo!
Non mi posso, oh Dio! spiegar.
Stelle barbare, stelle spietate,
Perché mai tanto rigor?
Alme belle, che vedete
Le mie pene in tal momento,
Dite voi, s’egual tormento
Può soffrir un fido cor?

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
