Ernesto Palacio sings "Tristezza" by Francesco Paolo Tosti (1846-1916)
Marco Rapattoni, piano
Marco Decimo, cello



Guarda; lontan lontano
muore ne l'onde il sol;
stormi d'uccelli
a vol tornano al piano.

Una malinconia io sento in cuore
e pur non so perchè;
guardandoti negli occhi,
o bella mia, muto mi stringo a te.

Copre l'ombrìa d'un manto
le cose, il cielo, il mar;
io sento tremolar
ne gli occhi il pianto.

Suona l'avemaria ed é sí triste
e pur non so perchè:
devotamente preghi, o bella mia,
io prego insieme con te.

Tenera ne la sera
che s'empie di fulgor,
dai nostri amanti cuor
va la preghiera.

E la malinconia
mi fa pensare
e pur non so perchè,
che un giorno, ahimè,
dovrà la vita mia
perdere il sogno e te!

Riccardo Mazzola


Look, far in the distance
the sun is dying on the waves
flocks of birds are flying
back to the plain.

I feel a sadness in my heart
and yet I don't know why.
Looking into your eyes my beauty,
I silently press you close to me.

A shadow cloaks creation
the sky and the sea,
I feel tears brimming
in my eyes.

The Angelus bell rings and sounds so sad
and yet I don't know why.
You pray devoutly, my beauty
and I pray with you.

Tenderly the prayer goes out
from our loving hearts
into the splendour
of the evening.

The sadness
makes me think
and yet I don't know why,
that one day, alas,
my heart will lose
this dream and you!
