Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In this opera, his masterpiece, Leoncavallo successfully combined instantly memorable melodies with simple and intensely dramatic situations. The dramatic power of the music written for the leading character, the tragic clown Tonio, has made it a favorite with the world's leading tenors. Gigli's command of the leading role is an object lesson in achieving the maximum impact without resorting to vocal excess. This famous La Scala production dates from 1934. Restored by Ward Marston.
