Recondita Armonia | Plácido Domingo

The supreme tranquility of Plácido, when Plácido Domingo sings Recondita armonia. Romanticism never dies in us. . .

But our Floria is Sophia.

English

What subtle harmony of different beauties!
Floria, my passionate lover is a brunette
And you, unknown beauty,
Are framed by fair hair
You have blue eyes
Tosca has dark eyes
The mysterious art
Mixes the different beauties together:
But while I paint her
I only think
Ah! I only think of you
Tosca, of you!
Original (Italian)

Recondita armonia di bellezze diverse!
Ȉ bruna Floria, l’ardente amante mia,
E te, beltade ignota cinta di chiome bionde!
Tu azzurro hai l’occhio
Tosca ha l’occhio nero!
L’arte nel suo mistero
Le diverse bellezze insiem confonde:
Ma nel ritrar costei
Il mio solo pensiero,
Ah! il mio sol pensier sei tu!
Tosca, sei tu!
