An Aria A Day #107

‘Sole e amore’
by Giacomo Puccini
Organ Glenn Amer

23rd August, 2020

Sydney based artist Clarissa Spata performs Puccini’s ‘Sole e amore’ (‘Sun and love’). While now recognisable from the third act of Puccini’s ‘La bohème’, this song was written some five years before for a catalogue of songs the composer later ‘raided’ for his opera.

Like Tuesday’s performer Rachel Pines, Clarissa is a regularly contributor to The 7 Sopranos. She was also a finalist on The Voice 2020 coached by Boy George.
