MI MANCHERAI: by GIANLUCA – Daniela

Cynthia from the Philippines, who is part of our crew, sent me this message:

“When I saw the video of “Mi Mancherai” for the first time, sung by Gianluca at the concert in Rome, I was no longer able to look at other things.

Every night I saw that video several times. I could not watch other videos or follow other posts, I was as bewitched by that performance.”

“Gianluca’s execution of the song:
seamless
powerful
sublime
delicate

It fascinates me and takes my breath away.

Enters the depths of my soul.

It makes me cry … in a purifying way, purging the muck out and lets shine what is pure and true inside.”

“Every note by Gianluca, every half note, every nuance, every breath … comes from the depths of his soul … truly honoring the music … giving (the) music (the) maximum respect …

I can only pay him homage, with so much dedication to his craft. What is kindled within me is that reverence to music, that awe…. ”

And here is the video that Cynthia is talking about.

Scrolling through the various comments, under this video, one immediately caught my attention:

Myron Heaton = I think the audience is on drugs – such small response ! This is one of Gianluca’s best songs ever and so beautifully done. This should have been shouts and tears and cheers. Bravo ! 

Gianluca is allowing his passion to show more and more these days. This is an example of that growth. From the shy kid 10 years ago to a stunning young man with exquisite musical heart.

A friend of mine, Rita Spera, after attending the concert in Palermo, wrote these beautiful words about the execution of Gianluca.

With a tribute to Massimo Troisi, on the notes of the soundtrack of the film IL POSTINO by Bacalov, who received the Oscar for these music, Gianluca did not deny it, on the contrary, with “Aranjuez” he made me know the power of his voice, this time I saw and heard other aspects. He touched all the notes I never imagined could be sung, he modulated his voice like so many musical instruments, sweet deep and poignant before, in a crescendo then up to make his voice tremble inside me. Like rising from the ground and then descending down, sitting on the steps to end his enchanting performance.
Tears did not stop me from observing his elegance in his posture, and in his gestures, which were used as an ornament, to his song.

Thanks, my boy, for the beautiful emotions you make us live, and the surprises that you reserve for us.

And here is the text of the beautiful song from the movie IL POSTINO

Beautiful Italian film, last work played and directed by Massimo Troisi, a good Italian actor who died prematurely due to a heart attack.

Candidate for 5 Oscars, got only the one for the soundtrack, by Bacalov. The words of the text are instead of Josh Groban.

MI MANCHERAI

Mi mancherai se te ne vai
Mi mancherá la tua serenitá
Le tue parole come canzoni al vento
E l’amore che ora porti via

Mi mancherai se te ne vai
Ora e per sempre non so come vivrei
E l’allegria, amica mia
Va via con te

Mi mancherai mi mancherai
Perché vai via?
Perché l’amore in te sé spento?
Perché, perché?
Non cambierá niente lo so
E dentro sento te

Mi mancherai mi mancherai
Perché vai via?
Perché l’amore in te sé spento?
Perché, perché?
Non cambierá niente lo so
E dentro sento che

Mi mancherà, l’immensità
dei nostri giorni e notti insieme a te
i tuoi sorrisi, quando si fa buio
la tua ingenuità, da bambina tu

Mi mancherai, amore mio
ti guardo e trovo vuoto dentro me

E l’allegria, amica mia
va via con te

I’LL MISS YOU 

I’ll miss you if you leave
I’ll miss your serenity
Your words like songs in the wind
And the love that you take away
 
I’ll miss you if you leave
Now, forever, I do not know how to live
And the joy, my love,
Goes away with you
 
I’ll miss you, I’ll miss you
Why do you leave?
Because the love inside of you is dead
Why, oh Why?
Nothing will change, I know that
Inside of me, I feel you

I’ll miss you, I’ll miss you
Because you go away
Because the love in you is dead
Why, oh Why?
Nothing will change, I know that
Inside of me, I feel you

I’ll miss the immensity
Of our days and nights together
Yours smiles when it was dark
Your being naive like a small girl
 
I’ll miss you, my love
I look and I find emptiness inside of me
 
And the joy, my love
Goes away with you

Mi Mancherai 07

There is not much to add, this music is really poignant, the words touch the heart and the voice of Gianluca …… caresses us deep into the soul, creating strong emotions.

Impossible to resist such sweetness.

Bravo Gianluca !! ❤️
