Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Italian Salvatore Licitra, who tragically died on September 5, 2011 after a motorbike accident, was one of the leading tenors of his generation in the highly sought-after dramatic Italian repertoire. A frequent guest at major opera and concert stages in Europe, the United States and the Far East, he was particularly devoted to Verdi repertoire.

As a tribute to this exceptionally gifted artist Sony have put together a selection of his best arias and songs taken operas from the dramatic Italian oeuvre. Also included are 5 previously unreleased tracks – all well-loved Italian songs recorded with Marco Armilliato and The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
