Gaetano Donizetti - Alfredo il Grande - "Che potrei dirti, o caro" (Della Jones)

Singer: Della Jones

The second part of the double upload from Donizetti's "Alfredo il Grande" is Amelia's final aria.

The scene happens at the very end, s the lovers' troubles have been fully resolved. In a half-humorous moment, Alfredo has asked his beloved why is she so silent. She immediately states that she doesn't know what too say... and sings a long, difficult rondo :). The piece opens with a short but quite nice cantabile which, though, is quickly replaced with a quite long and florid cabaletta. I say "cabaletta" but the scene is actually very freely written with a central motive (heard at the very beginning of the allegro) repeated several times over quite an amount of coloratura ornamentation. A nice touch is the always present chorus and the lines of Alfredo who joins his lover in her happiness, rather than stand in the corner, waiting for the end of the aria :).

The wonderful Della Jones takes up this taxing piece.
