Pacini: Saffo / Capuana, Gencer, Mattiucci, Guggia

Album Summary

>Pacini, Giovanni : Saffo
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

If it had not been for Bellini, and Donizetti, and Verdi...and maybe even Cimarosa and Paisiello...Pacini would be famous today. But as he himself sadly admitted, he was not in their class: except for one opera, 'Saffo,' into which he poured all his talent and a little more. 'Saffo' was immediately recognized as Pacini's masterpiece, and has continued to be the only Pacini opera to be widely revived. It is believed that 'Saffo' influenced Verdi, particularly in his ensembles.
