HD-Vinyl(Mono) 24/96 (EMI/Angel) Mascagni – Cavalleria Rusticana/Leoncavallo – I Pagliacci (Callas, Di Stefano, Gobbi, Serafin)

front-small-boxsetHad to search for a long long time, to get a NM copy of this
Leoncavallo’s and Mascagni’s short operas belong among the most popular works of the verismo . A great example of love, disappointment, betrayal, and death. Mascagni s beautiful music was made popular among opera novices through the Hollywood masterpiece “The Godfather III” . Leoncavallo’s sad and touching aria of Canio “Recitar, mentre preso dal delirio…” is one of the most beautiful arias in operatics. On this set, Maria Callas, Tito Gobbi and Giuseppe Di Stefano, led by Tullio Serafin, deliver a breathtaking performance. Stunning!

Ripping Info


If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Very light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
  • DR-Analisys before converting to Flac
  • Converting Wave -> Flac: Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Artwork: Sony Alpha 350, Epson Perfection V750 Pro, Photoshop CS 5.5

  1. What a feast to the ears! in 1954 Giuseppe was still fresh enough to Pull off Turridu (haven’t listened to I Pagliacci yet).

    What memories this conjures up from when I had this set.

    No words to express my delight and gratitude signor Alfio; this is to kill for, si? I’m still waiting for “Mama . . .quell vino.”

    Buona note.
