23. Vissi d'arte, vissi d'amore
Taking to the stage, opera star Kiri Te Kanawa, the National Philharmonic Orchestra and Sir Georg Solti perform this peaceful aria from Puccini's opera Tosca. The title is translated as 'I lived for art, I lived for love' - fitting, in the context of Beecham House and its talented residents.
