We have to assume that - Core N'grato - is the kind of song Gondoliers would likely sing, hence the jpeg. Se Tu M'am and Vittoria Mio Core are two old traditional Italian Songs among the couple of dozen such that most Classical singers are exposed to during their training. The first of these is especially important as it appears in Igor Stravinski's "Pulchinella" ballet, and which, when omited along with the other half dozen vocal moments in the original work as it is most of the time when done in Symphony preformance these days, leave us with cheapened version of that work. Here they present somewhat as a tribute to the performer, the superb Armenian-Russian mezzo, Zara Dolukhanova(1918-2007) who just recently died. We also have some Opera exerpts. The Cherry duet from "L'Amico Fritz" is the best know moment in his second most recognized Opera - "Cavalleria Rusticana" of course being very well known by all Opera lovers. "Che Far� � Senza Euridice", one of those arias that stays in the head, from "Orfeo et Euridice" 1762 of C. W. Gluck (1714-1787). This version of the legend is done a bit more often than that of Monteverdi who's piece is not only the first surviving super great Opera, but also, I would contend, is a bit greater work than the also very fine Gluck version. Signore, Acolta - is from Puccini's last Opera "Turandot" (1924). This Opera, which the composer barely failed to finish, seems to be steadily gaining in popularity. The premier was conducted by Arturo Toscanini. R.E.C.
