Think quickly here, and again watch carefully the differences between half and whole steps. "While we must always strive to perform like an instrumentalist, the voice is not an instrument and gets tired. Therefore, in order to save it, we often have to practice mentally. For example, these triplets could be studied while sitting quietly in your room. Go over and over them with your mind. Think the notes, but do no more than hum them. Eventually, you will have them in your head and know where you are going without unduly using your voice.
If you have a doubt as to where to begin a trill, it is on the note written. If the composer wants the trill to begin from above, he will give you an appoggiatura to the main note. Always presume, as well, it is a whole-tone trill unless the composer specifically indicates a half-tone. Remember, too, a trill is always written for an expressive reason. For example, the trills in 'D'amor sull'ali rosee' from the last act of Trovatore represent fear. In this Così aria, the trill reinforces the strength of Fiordiligi's love.
It should be 'Ah! PER-fi-do, sper-GIU-ro''perfidious one, false one': "Tie the words closely to the notes with a well-supported sound. This scene is written in so many sections that unless you keep it moving ahead steadily with a good legato, it will fall apart. ]: "Begin this phrase after the orchestral chord. In fact, think of the andante which follows as coming a measure earlier. This will open the phrase up, give it a feeling of relaxation and emphasize the change of mood. ' Both must be kept moving once you have begun them, and both must be sung with authority even though they are piano.
