In my novel MOZART’S LAST ARIA, the great composer’s sister Nannerl sings an aria written by her brother. The aria, Vorrei spiegarvi, is about a woman who tells her lover to return to his fiancee, despite the pain this causes her. It’s a key moment in the book and I decided to write this rock interpretation of the same theme. With the exception of keyboards by my pal David Brinn, I play all the instruments and do all the singing: if I can’t have undue creative influence over songs to be posted on my own blog, then it’s the end of the world! I hope you like the song.
