The great basso Cesare Siepi sings the Mozart aria "Per questa bella mano..." live at a 1956 recital in Salzburg. Piano: Leo Taubmann From the Orfeo d'Or CD Lovely lyrics as well: Per questa bella mano.....By this fair hand, Per questi vaghi rai............ by these lovely eyes, Giuro, mio ben, che mai........I swear, my dearest, that never Non amero che te............ will I love anyone but you L'aure,le piante,i sassi,..The breezes the plants, the stones Che i miei sospir ben sanno,..which know my sights full well A te qual sia diranno................ will tell you how constant La mia costante fe................is my fidelity. Volgi lieti o fieri sguardi,........Turn your proud gaze happily on me Dimmi pur che m'odo o m'ami,...and say whether you hate or love me! Sempre accesc ai dolci dardi,...... Ever inflamed by your tender glances, Sempre tuo vo' che mi chiami,.... I want you to call me yours forever; Ne cangiar puo terra o cielo........ neither earth nor heaven can change Quel desio che vive in me........... that desire which dwells within me.

Cesare Siepi...the grand basso cantante, sings the Schubert Lied "Du bist wie eine Blume", a live recording from 27th of July 1956 in Salzburg. This recording is part of a technically wonderfully re-mastered CD. Label ORFEO D'OR Festspieldocumente. I hope this will bring joy to all Siepi fans who might not be familiar with this side of this unsurpassed artist.

Please watch in High Quality. Just a reminder in these oh so uncertain times that there are constant, eternal and beautiful things on our earth which are not affected by the damage greed has done...a Video to calm our collective heart rates. No music...just the sounds of silence!

If you have not, please visit: http://www.youtube.com/cartoonage A few moments from a lovely visit with Elie (cartoonage) this August. I did not end up with more...usable footage...so just this little video. ( Better quality of this video is on my LiveVideo channel) Here we are on the Museum Island...a quite enchanted place of wooded areas, ponds, little running waters...The forest hides sculptures and buildings which hold a splendid collection of modern and eastern art...But as you will see...I am not showing much of the art, just a bit of the atmosphere and glimpses of my charming host...
