Nini Rosso – IL SILENZIO (1965)

Il Silenzio (The Silence) is an instrumental piece, with a small spoken Italian lyric, notable for its trumpet theme. It was written in 1965 (see „Origin” below) by trumpet player Nini Rosso and Guglielmo Brezza, its thematic melody being an extension of the same Italian Cavalry bugle call used by the Russian composer Tchaikovsky to open his Capriccio Italien (often mistaken for the U.S. military bugle call „Taps„.) It has become a worldwide instrumental standard, which has sold around 10 million copies.[2] It was a number one hit in the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Austria and in Switzerland in 1965. On 9 January 1965 it reached the Number 1 position in Australia and stayed in the charts for 19 weeks, and in the United Kingdom it peaked at number 8 on the Record Retailersingles chart. In the United States it reached #32 in the Billboard Easy Listening Charts. (wikipendia)

Spoken lyrics

Il Silenzio contains the following spoken lines:

Buona notte, amore
Ti vedrò nei miei sogni
Buona notte a te che sei lontana
Good night, love
I’ll see you in my dreams
Good night to you who are far away.
