Range L'alba separa dalla luce l'ombra

L’alba separa dalla luce l’ombra, a setting by Gabriele d’Annunzio, was composed by Sir Paolo Tosti in 1907 and published the same year. It is the second piece of his song cycle, 4 Canzoni d’Amaranta.

Tosti, born in Naples, remained, his whole life, an eminent ambassador of Napolitano culture, especially Napolitano song. Singing teacher, at first, in Rome of the princess Margherita of Savoy (later Queen of Italy), he later became one of the most prized musician of England after being appointed singing teacher of the Royal Family.

L’alba separa dalla luce l’ombra is the second song of his song cycle, 4 Canzoni d’Amaranta. He composed the song cycle in 1907, a year after becoming a British citizen. It sets a selection of four poems by Gabriele D’Annunzio written in Italian (and not in Napolitano, a dialect Tosti often chose to set to music). The melancholic, lyrical mood of the poem is perfectly captured by the composer in this song. The rising climax at the end of the song is particularly intense, fulling the space with a vibrant declaration of love.
