Information about the piece

Lascia Ch'io Pianga is a poignant aria by prolific German Baroque composer Georg Friedrich Händel. Meaning Let Me Weep, this emotionally charged opera song was first introduced in the opera 'Rinaldo', which debuted in 1711.

Here are some interesting aspects about the aria:

  • Origin: It initially appeared in the act 2 of 'Rinaldo', sung by Almirena (Rinaldo's lover) who's captive in the castle of the sorceress Armida.
  • Musical Composition: Händel composed it in his renowned operatic and baroque style, which is known for its dramatic intensity.
  • Reusability: Händel was known for recycling his melodies in different contexts. Lascia Ch'io Pianga was initially an Asian march in the opera 'Almira'. The melody was then transformed for 'Rinaldo'.
