Best Of Puccini (CD)
Puccini is unquestionably the most popular of all Italian opera composers. His emotionally-charged music has captured the hearts of millions of music lovers worldwide. His first and greatest success during his lifetime was with?Manon Lescaut?in 1893 represented here by the Intermezzo. His next three operas have since become mainstays of the standard repertoire although receiving a mixed reception when first performed.?La boh? me?skilfully mixes humour and pathos. Tosca?marks Puccini's full adoption of realism in the world of opera whilst Madam Butterfly?is now regarded as his most sophisticated work and probably one of the most well known and popular operas in recent history. Of course, even non-opera lovers will recognise the stirring chorus of Nessun Dorma which rounds off perfectly this stunning encapsulation of the art of Puccini.
