AnnaElisa sings...

Hi! 

 

I don't know if this is the right place, but I wanted to share a video from my latest concert. It's one of my favorite songs from Richard Strauss "For Last Songs" and it's called "September" and the poem was written by Hermann Hesse.

 

The English translation of the German lyrics:

 
The garden is in mourning.
Cool rain seeps into the flowers.
Summertime shudders,
quietly awaiting his end.

Golden leaf after leaf falls
from the tall acacia tree.
Summer smiles, astonished and feeble,
at his dying dream of a garden.

For just a while he tarries
beside the roses, yearning for repose.
Slowly he closes
his weary eyes.

 

❤️

@AnnaElisa, I enjoy singing (I have learned a little bit of classical this lifetime, and @Martha and I were castrati in one lifetime and we knew of each other), and I enjoy hearing someone who knows how to sing, sing with truth and their own "throat/anatomy/phrasing". I love the individuality of the expression of singing, it is a combination of technical mastery of forming those sounds with strength, proficiency and expression that I listen for. It really connects me to my essence and I can tell that you get the same essence connection. I am learning baritone ukulele which I enjoy and I play in a band.

I played this for my BF @Bobby Keating and he was enraptured the whole time. He knows his classical vocalist stuff and he said this was really great. Thank you for sharing this, @AnnaElisa!! You rock!

Thank you Anna Elisa. It is such a treat to hear someone make those sounds with their voice, and you make them with such ease and pleasure. It is a privelege to hear someone sing with such care, mastery and beauty and passion. I will be listening to more of your songs.

Oooohhh....thanks, Anna!!! Such beautiful words! ❤️

 

By the way, are you too a musician? I see you with the guitar on your photo...

Very nice! I've played the Vier Letzte Lieder a number of times (in the orchestra), and though I love piano, I do miss the beautiful horn solo at the end😉

 

Thanks, @Oscar! Wow, which orchestra do you play in? And what instrument? And YES, that horn solo is hauntingly beautiful!

Ever since I heard Vier Letzte Lieder for the first time, I've had such a huge respect for them that I didn't dare to sing them, and the same goes for my friend Beatrice who is playing the piano here. Then one day we were like "Just do it". 🙂 We cried the first time we went through the songs and through the tears laughed at Herr Strauss' capacity to really torment us with the painfully beautiful harmonies and dissonances. It feels like he makes me a better person with each bar...

Wow. Just.... wow. I feel a deep appreciation for being able to witness and experience this. It is beautiful. My fiance and several friends are/were professional vocalists in classical compositions and I am moved every time I hear this great art. Thank you for sharing.
