Singer of the Day: Sena Jurinac, b. 1921

Sena Jurinac was born in Travnik, Bosnia at that time- Yugoslavia. She sang roles in the mezzo and soprano fachs. Her portrayal of Octavian in Strauss' Rosenkavalier is legendary. Her operatic debut was in 1942 in Zagreb, with the role of Mimi.

In this radiant performance of Dove Sono, her voice is like glistening silver, both bright and round and a perfect vibrato constantly spinning even in the most delicate sounds.
