    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) - Per Questa bella mano for Baritone, Double Bass & Piano, K.612

    Ralph Klapis, baritone
    Dr. Phillip W. Serna, double bass
    Emily Jane Katayama, piano

    Per questa bella mano
    Per questi vaghi rai
    Giuro, mio ben, che mai
    Non amero che te

    L'aure, le piante, i sassi,
    Che i miei sospir ben sanno,
    A te qual sia diranno
    La mia costante fe

    Volgi lieti o fieri sguardi,
    Dimmi pur che m'odo o m'ami,
    Sempre accesc ai dolci dardi,
    Sempre tuo vo' che mi chiami,
    Ne cangiar puo terra o cielo
    Quel desio che vive in me

    By this fair hand,
    by these lovely eyes,
    I swear, my dearest, that never
    will I love anyone but you

    The breezes the plants, the stones,
    which know my sighs full well,
    will tell you how constant
    is my fidelity.

    Turn your proud gaze happily on me
    and say whether you hate or love me!
    Ever inflamed by your tender glances,
    I want you to call me yours forever;
    neither earth nor heaven can change
    that desire which dwells within me
