Shown in tux, studying a musical score, signing with an inscription in Italian
Photograph inscribed and signed: "A Eddy - per cordiale ricordo [for friendly remembrance]/New York 1973 C. F. Cillario". B/w, 4x6. Argentine-born Carlo Felice Cillario (1915-2007) received his music education in Italy. His plan to become a violin soloist thwarted by a soccer injury to his wrist, Cillario turned to conducting. During World War II, he conducted the orchestra of the University of Tucuman (Argentina), returning to Italy in 1946 to found the Bologna Chamber Orchestra. Opera conducting became Cillario's forte, however, and he was soon conducting in that genre in Rome and Milan, and beyond Italy in Paris, Berlin and other cities, debuting in England and the US in 1961. At the request of Maria Callas, the singer-friendly conductor conducted her Tosca at the Royal Opera House (1964). He was also a favorite of Montserrat Caballé, conducting her Covent Garden debut in La Traviata (1972). Cillario was a guest conductor with the Australian Opera from 1968 until 2003. Slightly worn at edges. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
