Testament offers this important recording of Adriana Lecouvreur as a tribute to the soprano Magda Olivero who died in Milan on 8 September 2014, aged 104.
The composer Francesco Cilea considered Olivero to be the definitive interpreter of his opera Adriana Lecouvreur.
In 1951, after ten years of retirement, Olivero returned to the stage, at the request of Cilea, to revive Adriana Lecouvreur, and thereafter she remained active in opera and concerts almost to the end of her life.
This recording of a live performance of Adriana Lecouvreur at the Edinburgh Festival on 27 August 1963 by the San Carlo Opera Company, conducted by Oliviero de Fabritiis, comes from a BBC broadcast. It stars Magda Olivero at the peak of her powers, with a top class supporting cast.
