ARIA by Villa-Lobos, Bachianas Brasileiras No.5, translation by Joel Sattler

 

ARIA (Cantilena) by Heitor Villa-Lobos, first part of Bachianas Brasileiras No.5, new words by Joel Sattler 

 

[note: this is not an exact translation]

 

 

In the early evening floats a cloud transparent and rosy

Infinite the sky of beauty and dreaming

Then the Moon appears as day comes to a closing

Decorating sky as if a girl that’s preening

Who so anxious tries to make of herself so purer

Yearning deep in her soul she seems to be a-keening

Crying to the sky and to the earth and all Nature

 

Silent all the birds stop, listen Moon is complaining

And the sea reflecting the pain, her splendor

Softly now you know the Moon is just waking

Homesick with the feeling that weeps while it’s laughing

In the early evening floats a cloud transparent and rosy

Infinite the sky of beauty and dreaming

Original lyrics in Portuguese by Ruth V. Corrêa:

 

Tarde uma nuvem rósea lenta e transparente.

Sobre o espaço, sonhadora e bela!

Surge no infinito a lua docemente,

Enfeitando a tarde, qual meiga donzela

Que se apresta e a linda sonhadoramente,

Em anseios d'alma para ficar bela

Grita ao céu e a terra toda a Natureza!

 

Cala a passarada aos seus tristes queixumes

E reflete o mar toda a Sua riqueza

Suave a luz da lua desperta agora

A cruel saudade que ri e chora!

Tarde uma nuvem rósea lenta e transparente

Sobre o espaço, sonhadora e bela!
