4.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Budget 'Gianni Schicchi' 28 Mar 2004
By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There is something about Puccini's little comic masterpiece that makes it almost failure-proof. I've seen a number of productions that didn't seem to have much going for them in terms of cast, production and orchestra, and yet the opera always comes off. Even so, I didn't have very high expectations for this recording when it came my way; after all, I'd never heard of any of the singers, had only a nodding aquaintance with the conductor, and it came from an obscure corner of Europe. I needn't have been apprehensive. This recording is really quite good, and indeed has some quite wonderful performances, especially in the Schicchi of Alberto Rinaldi and the Lauretta of Tatiana Lipsic (who does, after all, have the one 'hit' number of the piece, 'O mio babbino caro'). But, in fact, this ensemble piece is well served by the cast here assembled. It is conducted with verve by Alexander Rahbari and the orchestra is the Málaga Philharmonic which is much more than adequate, somewhat surprising considering that I'd never thought of Málaga as being anything more than a nice little city on the Costa del Sol and the source of that sweet wine bearing its name. Even on the recording - without the help of visuals - the sly comedy comes off, the romantic moments between Rinuccio (who has the only other aria even half-well-known, 'Firenze è come un albero fiorito') and Lauretta are ardently and sweetly done. Rinuccio is well-sung by tenor Stefano Secco, who has a lyric tenor with more than a little heft in the voice. He could well be a comer. Soprano Lipsic definitely is.
All in all, then, this 'Schicchi' has real artistic value and you get more than your money's worth at Naxos's ridiculously low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous 9 Dec 2011
Format:MP3 Download
I have only seen Gianni Schicchi once in real life, so cannot claim to be an expert. That said, I love this recording and have found it extremely enjoyable. I love the opera itself too - very funny and moving too. At this price, it's a great introduction for someone who's just not sure and would like to try this one out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Puccini: Gianni Scicchi 18 Dec 2012

Very good production. Pure tones and fabulous singing. It is not as well known as some Puccini and this, in my opinion, is a shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Puccini: Gianni Scicchi 20 Oct 2012
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Puccini: Gianni Scicchi is a 2002 Naxos recording under direction of Alxander Rahbari who leads the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra. The booklet contains notes and synopsis by Keith Anderson. It also contains all the lyrics and short biographies of the performers. A quite delightful Italian comic opera that is sure to delight both opera novice and expert alike. Recommended. 4/5.

Not a particularly avid Opera fan, but having heard this aria in a recent performance...I was instantly taken. My all-time favorite . If you know Italian or can interpret..you can see a daughter's hold over her father is eternal. rlw
