Every month, we at Candid Brilliance Music like to feature a specific song that we've recorded, so that those interested in our performance can get a taste of what we do. This month, we are sharing a sample of our recording: Rondine al Nido composed by Vincenzo De Crescenzo.
Rondine al Nido
This romantic sensation is one of the best known works of the Italian composer Vincenzo de Crescenzo (click here for full discography) . Written in the early 20th century, it deals with lost love. The composition title, "Rondine al Nido," translates to "Swallow in the Nest." Beginning calmly and lightly, the piece slowly builds toward passionate, emotional outbursts of sound.
This remarkable tune has been performed by such talent as Luciano Pavarotti. In fact, Wikipedia.org states that Pavarotti's rendition of the piece can be heard at the Bellagio's fountain in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The composition has also found its way into pop culture, making an appearance on Star Trek: Voyager in January of 2000.
