It isn’t very often that I get to feature an artist who is still with us – but, in this case, I do.   World famous opera singer Magda Olivero turned 103 this past March 25.  Here is how she sounded in Italy in 1940 when she recorded these sides for the Italian Cetra label.   Both are impressive – but I especially enjoy the Boheme selection.
