La canzonetta semplice

La canzonetta semplice is a song composed by the musician Igor Krutoj with lyrics by the unforgettable Russian baritone Dmitri Aleksandrovich Hvorostovsky (October 16, 1962 - November 22, 2017), who immortalized it with his performance in the recording of the album "Deja Vu", besides having sung it in countless concerts together with the enormous sopranos Sumi Jo and Aida Garifullina.

Why have we chosen it?

We chose it mainly because of its message: life is about enjoying simple things. This is what this simple, beautiful and vibrant song tells us, and we wanted to echo these words to end the period of confinement that was so difficult for everyone.

It is also our humble tribute to the wonderful Dmitri Hvorostovsky, who disappeared so early and painfully, and who has left us so much.

All'imbrunire, tremando al tramonto
sospira il giardino in fiore,
riconoscendo i baci del vento,
il suo profumo e il sapore.

Sotto la luna è così naturale
l'eterna amorosa pretesa:
io so aspettare, amore mio
e canto in attesa.

Dritta al cuore va,
dolce, un poco ironica,
la canzonetta mia,
chitarra e l'armonica.

Chiunque amerà
la canzonetta semplice
e sorridendo canterà
come me per te.
¡Io per te!

Questo è triste, quell'altro è stanco,
¡Siamo tutti così complicati!
Tanto rumore per nulla
che soffoca i nostri sogni alati

Sai, ogni tanto ci vuole
¡Qualcosa di semplice, e basta poco!
È così che comincia, amore mio
il nostro bel gioco.
È così che comincia, amore mio
il nostro bel gioco.

Dritta al cuore va,
dolce, un poco ironica,
la canzonetta mia,
chitarra e l'armonica.

Chiunque amerà
la canzonetta semplice
e sorridendo canterà
come me per te.

In the evening, trembling at dusk
sighs the garden in bloom,
recognizing the kisses of the wind,
its smell and its taste.

Under the moon is so natural
the eternal promise of love:
I can wait for you, my love,
and I sing while waiting.

It goes straight to the heart,
sweet, a little ironic,
my little song,
guitar and harmonica.

Everyone will love
this simple song
and smiling will sing
as I do for you.
Me for you!

This one is sad, the other one is tired,
We are all so complicated!
So much noise for nothing
that drown our winged dreams.

You know, sometimes it takes
something simple, just a little bit!
This is how it starts, my love,
our best game.
This is how it begins, my love,
our best game.

It goes straight to the heart,
sweet, a little ironic,
my little song,
guitar and harmonica.

Everyone will love
this simple song
and smiling will sing
as I do for you.
