I’m so grateful for the experience of living in Napoli for almost 3 years and the wonderful friends I made there 💗🇮🇹 I came to love Neapolitan songs through singing them with a local choir ☺️ ~ and when it came to my NYU Master’s Recital, I knew I wanted to include these very special pieces. Today’s #WeeklyWednesday is the last of four.
“I’ te vurria vasà” has music by Eduardo di Capua and lyrics by Vincenzo Russo.
I’ te vurria vasa (1900)
Translation: Berny Devlin, Luca Schiano di Cola, and Ashley Wagner
Special thanks to Luca Schiano di Cola for language help brushing up my Neapolitan!! Also to Hamlet’s Vintage for my beautiful dress ☺️
My full recital including ‘My Fair Lady’ character study is available here!
My phenomenal accompanist is Rachel Dean 👏 my wonderful vocal instructor throughout my time at NYU is Matthew Shepard Smith (if you’re looking for a teacher, contact him!!) and my fantastic vocal coach is Christine Reimer. It really has been such a privilege and joy to work with and create this with you!!
Thank you, as always, for watching – for encouraging me and supporting my work! That means so much to me 💜
