HD-Vinyls Stereo 24/96 (Decca) Pietro Mascagni – Cavalleria Rusticana (Suliotis/Del Monaco)

front-small-boxsetOnce I had the London Stereo Original release, but ripped it only in 16/44 and sold it. Then, last year I found the Original in Mono and made a 24/96 rip.
Now, “finalmente” I found the Original Stereo 1st Pressing that I offer here to you in 24/96

I find, the “Cavalleria” reveals perfectly the magic and the beautiful, amazing voice of the bright shining star of Elena Suliotis, who was at the time on the way to become the new Callas.

If you consider that there are also Tito Gobbi (!) and Mario Del Monaco (!!) on her side, you can sleep with serenity: there will never be a greater “Cavalleria” for the next 100 years.

The 3 Arias from Verdi and Ponchielli, sung by Elena Suliotis are a wonderful addition.

Ripping Infos


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

If you like what i do, please consider that a little donation would be very appreciate.
I reinvest all donations in maintenance of my rig, for purchasing cleaning solutions and, most important of all, purchasing of new vinyls.

Click on the “Donate”-button. Thank you very much !

Pay attention: I saved wrongly track “C3 Intermezzo Musicale” twice. You can delete one of them, no matter which one. Thank you

    • Ottimo cast, con Del Monaco nel suo momento di massimo fulgore vocale.
      Non capisco la ragione per cui è stato ripetuto due volte l’intermezzo, me lo puoi spiegare? Se fosse live penserei ad un bis, ma in studio …
      Comunque grazie per il nuovo rippaggio, anche questo di grande livello tecnico.
