Antonio Salieri: "Axur re d'Ormus" (1788)
Libretto: Lorenzo da Ponte after Beaumarchais.

Aspasia's aria

Son queste le speranze
che il misero mio sposo
di pace, di riposo,
di gioia aveva per me?

Dopo i sudor ch'ei sparse,
dopo i sofferti affanni,
crudel, tu lo condanni
a lagrimar per te?

Morte, pietosa morte,
dà fine al mio dolor;
in braccio all'empia sorte
non mi lasciare ancor.

One of the most popular arias of late 18th century.
"Axur" was an Italian adaption of his earlier French opera "Tarare"

Conductor: René Clemencic
Live recording (1990)
