Puccini: Il tabarro - Petrella, Bastianini, Picchi, de Palma; Santini. Florence, 1955
Listen to a Sample:
This quality of this recording is quite good. It sounds as if it were made in a studio specifically for radio. The great star of this recording is Ettore Bastianini and he sings it, as you might expect, gloriously. He is joined by Clara Petrella and Mirto Picchi who are very well matched. Both bring a wonderful spinto quality to their roles. Just listen to Petrella's high C in the sample!
