Notes & Reviews:
No previous recordings of the three one-Acters in Puccini's triptych bring quite such warmth or beauty or so powerful a drawing of the contrasts between each...Pacing each opera masterfully, Pappano heightens emotions fearlessly to produce at key moments the authentic gulp-in-the-throat...The casting in the middle opera is a near flawless as could be.
