    amazing Orlofsky! The best! does anyone know where can I find an entire production of Die Fledermaus with Ernman?

    Ich lade gern mir Gäste ein,
    Man lebt bei mir recht fein,
    Man unterhält sich, wie man mag
    Oft bis zum hellen Tag.
    Zwar langweil’ ich mich stets dabei,
    Was man auch treibt und spricht;
    Indes, was mir als Wirt steht frei,
    Duld’ ich bei Gästen nicht!
    Und sehe ich, es ennuyiert
    Sich jemand hier bei mir,
    So pack’ ich ihn ganz ungeniert,
    Werf’ ihn hinaus zur Tür.
    Und fragen Sie, ich bitte
    Warum ich das denn tu’?
    ‘S ist mal bei mir so Sitte,
    Chacun à son gout!
    Wenn ich mit andern sitz’ beim Wein
    Und Flasch’ um Flasche leer’,
    Muss jeder mit mir durstig sein,
    Sonst werde grob ich sehr.

    Sweetly singing nightingale!
    Where would you now fly?
    Where -- be singing through the night?

    Refrain:
    I:Nightingale, my nightingale,
    Sweetly singing nightingale!:I
    Someone poor , as myself,
    Would listen to you this night,
    Sinking in her own tears,
    Sheding them by wet lashes.

    Refrain:
    I: Nightingale, my nightingale,

    Sweetly singing nightingale!:I
    Oh, you fly, my nightingale,
    Through the twenty seven lands,
    Over blue seas and oceans,
    To the distant steeple shores.

    Refrain:
    I: Nightingale, my nightingale,
    Sweetly singing nightingale!:I
    If you fly over all lands,
    Towns, villages, cities,
    You wouldn't find anywhere
    Anyone with heavier grief.
    I have, have on my young chest
    Priceless pearls like the dense bars.
    I have, have on my fingers
    Priceless rings like heavy chains.

    Refrain:
    I:Nightingale, my nightingale,
    Sweetly singing nightingale!:I

    I have, have in my young heart
    Image of my beloved friend.
    And from grief on my young chest
    Priceless pearls lost their sparks.

    Refrain:
    Nightingale, my nightingale,
    Sweetly singing nightingale!

    Matthias Goerne - Litanei




    Litanei auf das Fest Aller Seelen

    Text by Johann Georg Jacobi (1740-1814)


    Ruhn in Frieden alle Seelen,
    Die vollbracht ein banges Quälen,
    Die vollendet süßen Traum,
    Lebenssatt, geboren kaum,
    Aus der Welt hinüberschieden:
    Alle Seelen ruhn in Frieden!

    Liebvoller Mädchen Seelen
    Deren Tränen nicht zu zählen,
    Die ein falscher Freund verließ,
    Und die blinde Welt verstieß;
    Alle, die von hinnen schieden,
    Alle Seelen ruhn in Frieden!

    Und die nie der Sonne lachten,
    Unterm Mond auf Dornen wachten,
    Gott, im reinen Himmelslicht,
    Einst zu sehn von Angesicht:
    Alle, die von hinnen schieden,
    Alle Seelen ruhn in Frieden!

    http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~marsal/taronj...3/Litanei.html



    Rest in peace, all souls
    who have had done with anxious torment,
    who have had done with sweet dreams
    who, sated with life and hardly born,
    have departed from this world:
    all souls rest in peace!

    And those who never smiled at the sun,
    keeping watch on the thorns beneath the moon,
    to see God in the pure heavenly light
    and look him just once in the face:
    all who have parted from here,
    all souls rest in peace!

    And those who knew no peace
    but still had courage and strength to give
    on fields strewn with corpses
    in a world half asleep:
    all who have parted from here,
    all souls rest in peace!

    haha, yes. Three of them are great musicians: orchestra, a trumpet player and a singer, but somehow they don't get together, they aren't an ensemble, it is as if each one of them plays/sings in his own tempo and his own version of bright seraphim - she is trying to "fly away", he is too shy and does his job as he should, because it's such a responsibility for him , and the orchestra tries to maintain order and not that easy in just following the soloists especially it's very well seen in first 2 minutes of the video. Even clavecin+singer part the accompanist tries to hold her as she hurries up, but I'd say it's better to follow a singer, otherwise the accompanist prevented her from "blossoming" . In this case it would be better to let her go as she wants it to sing.....I think all that is just due to lack of rehearsals as it sometimes happens especially when people come from different places and have limited time for rehearsing.

    You're right but in defence, indeed they had two rehearsals, and the open air in the canals between the houses aren't helping also.

    yeah, sure I understand. It happens even with the very top level musicians if there are not enough rehearsals it will be heard when soloists are involved. When they come they have just 2 rehearsals or even one with the orchestra (it very clearly seen in a case of pianists, singers and violinists), no wonder both orchestra and a soloist can be of top level, but still need to adjust.....

    and yes, open air concerts are popular now. I remember one in Dresden, opera night on open air ( wow!). public is so excited, but I think it's not much fun for singers and other musicians in general. Classical music is better within 4 corners environment imo.....

    yeah, sometimes it's my critic part in me takes over me
