DUO lll "Dolcissime vite nostre..." for violin and double bass
This duo is composed in 2012 and it is based on the fourth madrigal from the fifth Book by Carlo Gesualdo.
Dolcissima mia vita,
A che tardate la bramata aita?
Credete forse che’l bel foco ond’ardo
Sia per finir perché torcete’l guardo?
Ahi, non fia mai, ché brama il mio desire
O d’amarti, o morire.
Why do you withhold the relief which I long for?
Perhaps you think that my burning desire will end,
Because you turn away whenever I see you?
Alas, this cannot be,
I must either love you or die
