Mascagni: Cavalleria Rusticana - Niska, Bartolini, Darrenkamp; Martelli. 1976


Listen to a Sample:



  • This recording features some exceptionally fine performances from singers whose stars never reached as high as they should have.
  • Maralin Niska sings Santuzza with abandon, but without ever distorting the character with campy tropes that are all too familiar in verismo.
  • As Turridu, Lando Bartolini sings like a god.


  • None to mention.
