I was very impressed by the BBC TV broadcast of Il Triticco from Royal Opera under director Pappano. This CD set tops the TV broadcast in terms of sheer musical quality. The balance of singers and orchestra is better in a studio production than in a live performance. The soloists produce a beautiful sound but with dramatic intensity when needed. Pappano is a master in extracting all the authentic Italian emotion from the music in a way that seems completely natural and carries you along with it. Both LSO and Philharmonia produce outstanding sound quality, in particular the Philharmonia in Suor Angelica.

Having praised the musical quality of the CDs I would like to comment that I am glad to have seen the TV version. Having the libretto on another CD is all very well but nothing beats seeing the action, complete with translation, as the action proceeds. I feel that with both I am covering all the dramatic and musical bases.

The three operas are intentionally very different. Il Tabarro is an earthy melodrama with physical and emotional darkness, complete with a double murder. Puccini's music conveys this quality well. Suor Angelica is sometimes criticised for being over sentimental. Pappano manages to retain the ethereal quality without falling into this trap. This opera is as ravishingly beautiful as anything by Puccini. As noted above, the Philharmonia convey this quality superbly. Gianni Schicchi is Puccini's only comic opera. The comedy aspect of the main character is wonderfully conveyed by Jose Van Dam. Of course, there is the well known "O mio babbino caro", which is more typical of the composers lyrical output. This is so beautifully performed by Angela Gheorghui that I am left wishing the song was longer.

This is an exceptional recording of Il Trittico. Let's hope we manage to see a production at Covent Garden while Pappano is in residence. The casting is excellent. Il Tabarro has some stunning moments and the duet between Guleghina & Shicoff is one of them, overall this ensemble piece is terrific and full of atmosphere. Suor Angelica is a challenging role for any soprano but Gallardo Domas who has made this role very much her own in recent years is a fine interpreter and is surrounded by an excellent company. Il Trittico my least favourite comes up well on this recording and every performance makes this comedy sparkle. There are other versions of these operas, but as a set this is very definitely the best on the market. The Tebaldi set is still a good buy, but for a modern sound with top class vocals it has to be this one. Go on, you need this set!!

Antonio Pappano has by and large over the years triumphantly justified his preferential treatment by EMI in being allowed to record large-scale works where other eminent conductors have gone begging. This trilogy recorded in 1997 must be accounted a success even in the light of stiff competition going back fifty and more years but of course one area where it trumps all others is the clarity and spaciousness of the sound, especially in such places as the atmospheric opening to "Il tabarro" with lapping waters of the Seine, the distant tugboat sirens and car horns or Maria Guleghina's absolutely blood-curdling scream when Michele reveals Luigi's corpse under his cloak to Giorgetta. And of course the orchestral playing from two of London's finest orchestras is superb.

This first opera is a definite success, not least because of Carlo Guelfi's strong performance as Michele and Guleghina's convincing depiction of a bored and slightly blowsy woman who yearns to escape her mundane existence. Nonetheless, for sheer vocal thrills you cannot beat Del Monaco, Tebaldi and Merrill for Gardelli. Of course, Neil Shicoff with his lighter, throatier tenor is dramatically more convincing as a young man easily subdued by the enraged wronged bargee whereas Del Monaco sounds as though he could rip his head off. Nonetheless, Del Monaco's "meglio non pensar" arias followed by his passionate duet with Tebaldi are among their greatest moments and I wouldn't be without them. Still, Pappano directs an arresting performance of this melodrama and all round it is very satisfying - although, again, I wouldn't want to be without Gobbi's searing Michele in the classic mono version. Only Milnes manages to growl "Squaldrina!" (slut) through his teeth almost as feelingly as Gobbi.

Suor Angelica has always been my favourite from Puccini, even more so now having listened all three parts of this triptych. The differences between each are clear but their is a linkage of warmth and beauty which flows through all three.
