Leoncavallo: Pagliacci - Del Monaco, Lot. Rysanek, Taddei, Dallapozza, Helm; Guadagno. Wien, 1973


Listen to a Sample:



  • Despite being in his 60s Mario Del Monaco demonstrates that he still had the vocal goods to deliver a first-rate Canio. What he lacks in subtlety he makes up for in animalistic intensity.
  • Lotte Rysanek's soft-grained soprano proves an excellent compliment to Del Monaco's rageaholic clown.
  • Giuseppe Taddei (no spring chicken himself) brings suave malevolance to the role of Tonio.


  • None to mention.
