Mascagni: Cavalleria Rusticana based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Listening to this wonderful recording is like settling comfortably into an old pair of slippers. Agnes Baltsa and Placido Domingo are perfect in the lead roles; the supporting roles and chorus of villagers are, for once, not lost in the murk but clear as a bell with nice dynamics. The recording quality is great - can't tell if this is a studio (i.e. not staged) session, but there is also no stage / scenery noise to interfere with the great music and performance. Would like to have had this paired with Pagliacci, its frequent live-performance companion.
