Norah Wanton, age 7, singing "Santa Lucia" in Longleat House, Somerset, UK. 23rd July 2016.
"Santa Lucia" is a traditional Neapolitan song written by Teodoro Cottrau and published as "Barcarolle" in Naples in 1849. It was later translated into Italian.
The original lyrics of "Santa Lucia" celebrate the picturesque waterfront district, Borgo Santa Lucia, in the Bay of Naples. A fisherman invites people to go on his boat to better enjoy the cool of the evening.
The song immediately became a national hit and then a real international triumph. It is still interpreted today by the best singers in the world, both opera and pop singers.

Norah Wanton, age 7, in Longleat House (Somerset, UK), 23rd July 2016, performing Claude Debussy, “Le Petit Nègre” (The Little Nigar) published for the first time in 1909.
This piece is in C major, Allegro giusto. It has 2 very opposite thematic elements, repeated several times. The first theme, which is very happy, is characterized by a staccato rhythm, with a syncopated right hand. The subtle game of the two superimposed hands in the low register should be noted, then the alternate crossing hands to conclude brilliantly in acute.
On the contrary, the second theme is sweet and expressive, dreamy and peaceful.
As regards the venue, Longleat is an English stately home and the seat of the Marquesses of Bath. It was built in the sixteenth century by Sir John Thynn on the site of a dissolved priory.

Norah Wanton, age 7, performing S. Prokofiev, “Tarantella” (Тарантелла), op.65 no.4 in D minor in Wells Concert Hall, Somerset (UK). 29th July 2016.
Prokofiev’s “Tarantella” is a happy piece that brings the characteristics of this Italian dance to life, including skipping, running, and banging on tambourines. It uses quick, broken triads and five finger patterns.

Norah Wanton, age 7, performing “Lágrima” (Teardrop) in Wells Concert Hall in Somerset, UK. 29th July 2016.
“Lagrima” is one of the best-known songs by Francisco Tárrega. It is a romantic prelude for solo guitar, a very short miniature which creates a melancholic atmosphere.
Enjoy Spanish music!
