Puccini: Gianni Schicchi - Capecchi, Rizzoli, Lazzari, Palombini, De Palma, Clabassi; Molinari-Pradelli. Napoli, 1956
Listen to a Sample:
Renato Capecchi leads the cast of this performance both literally and figuratively. From his entrance he dominates the proceedings with a mixture of dramatic baritone swagger and buffo charm. Agostino Lazzarino exudes youthful vigor as Rinuccio. Bruna Rizzoli is a sweet if somewhat bland Lauretta. The sound is very good.
