The Music of MOZART’S LAST ARIA: Vorrei spiegarvi


In Chapter 22 of my new novel MOZART’S LAST ARIA, Wolfgang Mozart’s sister Nannerl sings for Baron van Swieten. The aria for soprano “Vorrei spiegarvi” (“I wish to explain to you”) is a tender love song by a woman who cannot be with her true love. This version is sung by Elizabeth Parcells, the American soprano who died tragically of cancer at 54 six years ago. Listen to more of the music of MOZART’S LAST ARIA. Watch videos about the book.
