Overview

EMI's two-disc set, Essential Puccini, offers a generous selection of arias, duets, and ensembles from nine of his operas. The various tracks, mostly from EMI archives, were recorded between 1959 and 2001, so the sound quality is variable. The singers include some of the most illustrious of the late 20th century, such as Maria Callas, Mirella Freni, Victoria de los Angeles, Montserrat Caballé, Renata Scotto, Birgit Nilsson, Angela Gheorghiu, Jussi Björling, Franco Corelli, Nicolai Gedda, Plácido Domingo, Roberto Alagna, and Tito Gobbi. The album may appeal especially to movie fans since about half of the tracks include music that was used in films, although it was not necessarily this particular performance that was heard on the soundtrack. The album could be of interest to general listeners who want to hear some Puccini.
