Lascia ch’io pianga.
As it turns out, Nicole’s studio recital on November 5th was recorded, so I’m able to share with all of you the aria that she performed. Now, I still haven’t purchased the media upgrade to upload music here in WordPress, but it turns out that my Tumblr blog allows me to upload music just fine… so it’s there.
The aria is titled “Lascia ch’io Pianga” and is from the opera Rinaldo by Handel. it was performed at the University of Western Ontario nearly one month ago, as part of an evening of Italian classical music and performance (despite the fact that Handel himself was German). I hope you enjoy it.
