You ask that I forget you ?

I love to watch artists at work. This is a working session of the Bulgarian mezzo-soprano Vesselina Kasarova & Nikolaus Harnoncourt animating the aria “Ch’io mi scordi di te?”
from  Mozart’s ” La clemeza di Tito”. (The conversation is in German with  English subtitles. )

You ask that I forget you?
You can advise me to give myself to her?
And this while yet I live?
Ah no! My life would be far worse than death!
Let death come, I await it fearlessly.
But how could I attempt to warm myself to another flame,
to lavish my affections on another?
Ah! I should die of grief!

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    And I also enjoy seeing the interaction ihe production. I allways find the hard work and cooperation , in musical or other artisitic productionst – the exchanging of ideas and the way one inspires another – truly magnificent. Is there perhaps something here that we can learn about working together in the world, for the good of all?
