"Godfather Theme", Electric Violinist, NY, NJ, CT, Wedding Ceremony Music,

The Godfather on the Electric Violin

"Speak Softly Love"

"Speak Softly Love" is more commonly known as the theme from the movie, "The Godfather." Our Julliard trained violinist, Susan, plays it in this video-clip. Susan has an extensive repertoire of songs. She plays the classical and liturgical pieces that are suitable for a wedding ceremony and she also performs modern tunes.

We like to highlight her versatility, because she is the perfect choice for a wedding ceremony, a cocktail party, or the cocktail hour of a wedding reception.

Susan performs on electric violin(as you see here) or an acoustic violin(your choice). We love the sound of an electric violin, because you can get some of the same elements that one would hear from a rock guitar.

Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from The Godfather)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Composed by Larry Kusic and Nino Rota.

"Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from The Godfather)" is a song written for The Godfather (1972), the first film in The Godfather trilogy. While its instrumental version is simply known as "The Godfather Love Theme", "Speak Softly Love" is the vocal version.
The words are by Larry Kusik but the music itself is by Nino Rota. The signature musical theme that opens the piece closely models a theme that appears early in "Preludio - Povero Ernesto!" in the opera Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848). A similar melody also appears in the Overture to "La Forza del Destino" by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). There are also different sets of lyrics for the song in Italian ("Parla PiĆ¹ Piano"), French ("Parle Plus Bas") and also in Sicilian ("Brucia La Terra"). The Sicilian version is sung by Anthony Corleone (Franc D'Ambrosio) in The Godfather Part III.
Rota had used a more comedic version of the song for the 1958 film Fortunella. When this was discovered, Rota's score for The Godfather was disqualified from consideration at the 1973 Academy Awards; it had been nominated for Best Original Score. However, Rota's score for The Godfather Part II won the 1974 Academy Award for Best Score, despite containing the same piece.
