I got the idea for this guitar cover, when the remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson, has been announced in 2017 and this magical melody was used in the first trailer.
I’m not that girl
|known from:||Wicked (musical, 2003)|
I’m not that girl is a love song from Stephen Schwartz’ musical Wicked, one of my favourites. The witch Elphaba, bullied for her green skin color, expresses her feelings for the good looking but out of reach student named Fiyero.

This is my interpretation of the famous piano piece Una Mattina that many people know from the french film Intouchables. Einaudi originally had written this music for his same-named album in 2004 but I play the longer version from the soundtrack.
Caro mio ben
|composer:||Tommaso or Giuseppe Giordani (uncertain)|
Although I always try to break down music scores into one single voice for my guitar it sometimes doesn’t work without a singer. For lack of talent I can’t do that part on my own. Fortunately Joanna, a friend of mine with a brilliant voice, helped me on this old Italian aria and did a great job! Together with Dan from BluFrames we recorded it professionally and now we want to share the result with you.
Lascia ch’io pianga
|known from:||Rinaldo (opera, 1711)|
Antichrist (film, 2009)
|composer:||Georg Friedrich Händel|
As in Caro mio ben, Joanna also did the singing part of this second Italian-language aria while Dan recorded both of us. Maybe you recognise the music from the film Antichrist by Lars von Trier but it originally became very popular with Händel’s opera Rinaldo during the 18th century. We also included the recitative.
