Barbara Bonney "S'altro che lacrime" Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Singer: Barbara Bonney

Barbara Bonney is one of the leading lyric sopranos of her generation. With over 100 recordings to her name, her artistry has been documented for generations of singers to come. Her Sophie (Rosenkavalier) is legendary the world over, as are her Mozart roles of Susanna (Figaro), Parmina (Zauberflote). Ms. Bonney devoted much of her 30 year career to Lieder, and continues to sing Lied-Recitals and Orchestral Concerts. She is a devoted mentor of the new-generation-singer, and is currently Professor at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, as well as guest professor of the Royal Academy of Music in London.

"S'altro che lacrime"
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

S'altro che lacrime
Per lui non tenti,
Tutto il tuo piangere
Non giovera.

A questa inutile
Pieta che senti,
Oh quanto e simile
La crudelta.

English Translation

If nothing but tears
you expend for him,
then all your weeping
will be in vain.

To this useless
compassion you feel,
oh how similar
is cruelty.
