Program Notes on Tre giorni son che Nina by Pergolesi :

This score is a transcription for cello and piano of the famous aria Tre giorni son che Nina by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi.

It is set in the key of G minor.

The cello part is appropriate for intermediate-level cello students.

Tre giorni son che Nina is one of the best-loved arias of the Italian Baroque period.

The lyrics describe the concern of a man for his beloved Nina, who is lying in bed, seriously ill :

For three long days my Nina, my Nina, my Nina
Upon her bed has lain, upon her bed has lain.
Louder and louder, ye players all, awaken my Ninetta,
Awaken my Ninetta, that she may sleep no more.

The aria Tre giorni son che Nina is a beautiful encore piece, and it was often used as such by violinists Fritz Kreisler and Nathan Milstein.

Tre giorni son che Nina

Tre giorni son che Nina
In letto se ne sta.
Il sonno l'assassina
Svegliatela, per pietà!

E cimbali e timpani e pifferi,
Svegliatemi Ninetta
Perchè non dorma più

E mentre il sior dottore
A visitarla va,
Ninetta per amore
In letto se ne sta.

For three days Nina

For three days Nina
has stayed in her bed.
The slumber is killing her.
Please waken her!

Cymbals, drums, and shawms,
waken my little Nina,
so she may not sleep any more.

And while the doctor
goes to visit her,
dear Nina, out of love,
stays in her bed.
