    Lascia ch’io pianga, originally Lascia la spina, cogli la rosa, is an Italian-language soprano aria by composer George Frideric Handel that has become a popular concert piece. Its melody is first found in Act III of Handel’s 1705 opera Almira as a sarabande; the score for this can be seen on page 81 of Vol. 55 of Chrysander. Handel then used the tune for the aria Lascia la spina, cogli la rosa, or Leave the Thorn, Take the Rose, for the character Piacere in Part II of his 1707 oratorio Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno (which was much later, in 1737, revised as Il trionfo del Tempo e della Verità). Four years after that, in 1711, Handel used the music again, this time for his London opera Rinaldo and its Act II aria Lascia ch’io pianga, or Leave Me to Weep, sung by the character Almirena, a soprano role taken by Isabella Girardeau in the premiere. Rinaldo was a triumph, and it is with this work that the aria is chiefly associated.

    After composing two Italian operas for Hamburg, two Italian oratorios for Rome, and a third Italian opera for Venice, George Frideric Handel moved to England in 1710 to compose his first Italian opera for London. Produced in the Queen's Theater in the Haymarket on February 24, 1711, Rinaldo would certainly have been an enormous success if the librettist and impresario Aaron Hill had not neglected to pay the tradesmen, thereby causing the Lord Chamberlain to revoke Hill's theater license nine days after the premiere. But Rinaldo paved the way for the quick success of Handel and Italian opera in London and the work was revived in 1712, then again in 1717, and again in 1731.

    Hill's libretto is based on Tasso's epic poem on the First Crusade Gerusalamme liberata, but with a new plot and a new female lead to give the story appeal to a then-contemporary London audience. Handel's music is in part a pastiche drawn from many of his earlier dramatic works, and in part a newly composed work with deeply expressive arias and recitative adorned with extravagant trumpet and woodwind writing. Together, Hill's libretto and Handel's music create a powerful and plangent opera with strong and sympathetic leads in Rinaldo and Almirenda and a superbly coherent and convincing score.

    3:58

    Nato ad Andria nel 1705 da una famiglia di musicisti e funzionari del re di Napoli, Carlo Broschi detto Farinelli, perde il padre a soli dodici anni. Forse a quel tempo era già stato sottoposto alla castrazione, in caso contrario la responsabilità dell'intervento è da attribuire al fratello Riccardo divenuto il capofamiglia e di 10 anni più grande. Broschi prendeva lezioni di musica dal maestro Nicolò Porpora. La famiglia Farina gli offrì un aiuto economico enorme per intraprendere i suoi studi musicali, infatti da qui il soprannome Farinelli. Carlo Broschi diviene famoso per: il suo timbro vocale molto gradevole, l’ estensione e la tenuta di  fiato invidiabili, e per le sue messe di voce, cioè quei suoni che da pianissimo crescono d'intensità fino a diventare fortissimi ed in seguito decrescere nuovamente.
    La scena è tratta dal film Farinelli, voce regina che è stato premiato come miglior film straniero ai Golden Globe e ha ricevuto una nomination all'Oscar.

    Painting - Rinaldo and Armida, 1814
    Artist - Francesco Hayez (1791-1882)

    The libretto was written by Giacomo Rossi.

    Lascia ch'io pianga
    Mia cruda sorte,
    E che sospiri
    La libertà.

    Il duolo infranga
    Queste ritorte,
    De' miei martiri
    Sol per pietà.

    English translation

    Let me weep
    over my cruel fate,
    And sigh
    for liberty.

    The (my) sorrow
    shatters these bonds,
    Only out of pity
    for my suffering.

    2. Version:
    Let me weep
    My cruel fate,
    And sigh
    for liberty.

    My sorrow
    shatters these bonds,
    in my sufferings
    I pray for mercy.

    Händel's opera, Rinaldo, was the first Italian opera written for the English stage. Despite less-than-stellar judgements from the English music critics, the audiences loved it. The story takes place in Jerusalem at the end of the 11th century, at the time of the first Crusades. At the end of the first act, the knight Rinaldo sits with his lover, Almirena in the garden. All of a sudden the evil sorceress appears and abducts Almirena. At the start of the second act, Almirena sits in her captor's palace garden mourning her predicament. Having been taken away from the love of her life with no hope of ever escaping, Almirena can only pray for mercy. Listen to this sublime performance of Lascia ch'io pianga.

    ================================
    Hallenberg is a force of nature, in stark contrast to the synthetic singing of the film, for which sound engineers fuse a mezzo with a male alto voice. Hallenberg’s voice is unmistakably her own, and the crackling tension of live performance fills every phrase. Her swaggering fireworks culminate in a final aria of almost ludicrous velocity. Her lyricism is equally powerful, thanks partly to Rousset. Creating hushed silence or soft tremolos, he subtly makes space for her vocal entries and colours; Gramophone March 2017
