"Rarest Lilia d'Albore German Radio Recording. "Emilia “Lilia” d’Albore was born on January 4, 1911 in Santa Maria Capua Vetere, Italy. She belonged to the Neapolitan aristocracy presumably stemming from the Bourbon era. She entered the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome to study with Gioacchino Micheli (violin) and Aldo Perini (viola). Graduated from the Conservatory in 1929, continued to study under Carl Flesch until 1931 in Berlin and Baden-Baden.
She made the first of her relatively few recordings in 1940 for Polydor (Franck, Schubert, Dvorák, Simonetti, Mozart and Veracini) with the German pianist Hubert Giesen, and (Brahms and Pizzetti) with the Hungarian-Dutch pianist Géza Frid. Early made in Germany on DGG 68002-005 LM, 78rpm, 12inch, 4 record set. Program: Cesar Franck Sonata for violin and piano.
