“Music between Heaven and Earth”
Alessandro Cipriano. Of Italian and German extraction, the lyrical tenor began his studies under the aegis of opera and concert singer Werner Ernst in Zurich.
In 1995, as an advanced singer, he was accepted for tuition with Ruthilde Boesch in Vienna, the chamber singer best known for assisting Edita Gruberova, coloratura soprano, La prima Donna assoluta to fame. In 1997, Alessandro auditioned with Alexander Pereira, former Director of the Zurich Opera House and current Artistic Director of the Teatro alla Scala in Milano, and as a result, Alessandro was awarded a scholarship by the Armin-Weltner-Stiftung for instruction in Vienna. Studies in Vienna from 1995-2002.Alessandro spent 10 Years in Vienna where he lived and studied. Vienna has become his second home.
He took part in several international Singing Competitions and Master Classes by Teresa Berganza, Placido Domingo, Carlo Bergonzi, Nicolai Gedda and others…..
Thanks to his flexibility and openness towards to all kinds of musical styles, he has been able to build a truly wide repertoire. Whether baroque, classical or crossover, Alessandro subjects each and every item to intensive study before performing it on stage. Not surprisingly, thanks to his Italian roots, he specialises in bel canto. But his preferences also extend to the world of Lieder as well as Neapolitan Canzoni, Tango Argentino and Viennese songs, which he brought to perfection during his years in Vienna. “Songs like: Vienna city of my dreams, my mother was a Viennese etc…. it is always a highlight, because people like them and remember them well, especially during New Year.
In autumn 2002, accompanied by musicians from the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, he recorded a CD featuring the rarely performed songs of Charlie Chaplin. The CD was then premiered at a concert with French “Star” singer Patricia Kaas. Concert tours followed. In 2006 his debut CD Amore mio was released. In 2009, Alessandro founded his own production company and label, CID-Production and started from scratch, he took his career in his own hands. CD Release, Visione, May 2011. December 2011, he was invited to perform at the Silvesterstadl in Graz, Austria. The New Years Show was broadcast live on ORF, ARD and SRF, Austrian, German and Swiss TV.

An die Musik
By Franz von Schober (1796-1882)
Du holde Kunst, in wieviel grauen Stunden,
Wo mich des Lebens wilder Kreis umstrickt,
Hast du mein Herz zu warmer Lieb entzunden,
Hast mich in eine beßre Welt entrückt!
Oft hat ein Seufzer, deiner Harf’ entflossen,
Ein süßer, heiliger Akkord von dir
Den Himmel beßrer Zeiten mir erschlossen,
Du holde Kunst, ich danke dir dafür!
Smile by Charles Chaplin
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky
you’ll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through
Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying.
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile-
If you just smile…..
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
benedicta tu in mulieribus
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
Sancta Maria, sancta Maria,
Maria, ora pro nobis nobis peccatoribus,
nunc et in hora, in hora mortis nostrae.
