What fun! The translation notes contain an apology for those who speak authentic Italian, because this opera spoof is pure comedy! Nancy Grundahl has created a hilarious medley of some of the most famous arias of all time using Italian musical vocabulary for text as well as some “original” Italian-ish words with a little English mixed in. “La Vocabulario di Musica” uses each opera snippet to demonstrate the meaning of the text. For example, “Quando m'en vo” is con grazia (with grace) and con molto eleganza (with much elegance). The “Love Duet” from The Magic Flute demonstrates pizzicato. “Habanera” from Carmen portrays espressivo, apassionata, mysterioso, and ostinato, to name a few. A fabulous learning tool, this humorous compilation will bring the house down! For concert, festival, or just for fun!
