About

Although it is now twenty-four years since Sena Jurinac, an honorary member of the Vienna State Opera, bade farewell to the stage, memories of her great performances remain as fresh as ever: first as Octavian and then as the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier, and as both Cherubino and the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro - a list of all Jurinac's roles in Vienna would go on for pages.
 
A selection is now released on 2CDs to mark the singer's 85th birthday on 24th October 2006. Featuring live recordings from the years 1950-1972, it attests to her artistry and ability to bring operatic characters to life. In addition to the aforementioned parts, which demonstrate her ability to switch effortlessly from trouser roles to the great lyric soprano repertoire, she may also be heard as Butterfly, Tosca and Jenufa, all of which mark her out as a tragic actress of the very first order.
 
This compilation reflects the exceptionally high standards of Vienna during the 1960s and '70s, not only on first nights but also at ordinary repertory performances, when Sena Jurinac's partners onstage and in the pit included artists of the stature of Christa Ludwig, Plácido Domingo, Carlo Cossutta, Silvio Varviso and André Cluytens.Together, these musicians provided innumerable great evenings in the theatre.
 
Sena Jurinac - an artist who can truly be described as a living legend.
