“Liebe, du Himmel auf Erden” from “Paganini” (F. Lehár)「愛、地上の天国よ」F.レハール作曲「パガニーニ」より

This is one of my favourite arias and I have often performed it in various concerts. This recording was made around 1998 in Moscow. That recording was a special experience for me and I often remember it.
In this aria, Napoleon’s sister Elisa expresses her profound love for the Violinist Paganini.
