Jeffrey Gall - Se In Fiorito Ameno Prato

Singer: Susan Larson

American countertenor Jeffrey Gall singing Cesare's aria Se In Fiorito Ameno Prato from George Frideric Handel's 1724 opera seria Giulio Cesare In Egitto (HWV 17). Directo Peter Sellars reimagined the 1990 production of this baroque masterpiece as a modern confrontation between an American president and an Arab potentate (which works remarkably well, if you ask me). Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden was conduced by Craig Smith with Susan Larson as Cleopatra and the late Lorraine Hunt-Lieberson as Sesto.

Aria Cesare

Se in fiorito ameno prato l'augellin tra fiori e fronde si nasconde,
fa più grato il suo cantar. Se così Lidia vezzosa spiega ancor notti canore, più graziosa


fa ogni core innamorar.

English Libretto or Translation:

Aria Cesare

If in flowery pleasant meadow the augellin among flowers and fronds is hidden,
his singing is more grateful. If so, Lidia Vezzosa explains even the most graceful singing nights

makes every core fall in love.
