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!!
