I need the aria from Sorbet (this particular adaptation of Haendel’s Piangerò) - well, actually ALL the music from Sorbet, and then certainly the harpsichord song from Futamono! (The Goldberg Variations and Vide Cor Meum are by default, right?)
Ok, Fannibals (and other interested parties), I’m watching this show and just got to the episode “Sorbet.” The show is great, that’s not the question. But this episode opens with an opera singer (her name is Emily Klassen, btw) performing an aria. Doing just a lovely job, BUT she sings the middle part of her aria and then everyone jumping up to applaud at the end.
So here is my public announcement: if you ever hear that aria and have the urge to jump up an applaud where everyone did on “Hannibal,” DON’T because it’s the MIDDLE OF THE PIECE and things will be AWKWARD SAUCE. That is a “da capo” aria, literally meaning “from the head” or essentially “go back to the beginning and sing that part again.” The aria has an ABA form. What you heard was the B section. The repeat of A is still to come, and it will have have ornamentation (extra fancy notes) to keep things spicy.
Now please enjoy the complete aria, “ Piangerò la Sorte Mia ” from Händel’s Giulio Cesare sung by Kathleen Battle (because a complete recording from Emily Klassen is not on youtube).
