Rare HD Vinyl 96/24 (Erato) Puccini/Boito/Mercadante/Verdi – Symphonic Works (Scimone)

Reposted – now with FF links
The “Preludio Sinfonico” was composed in 1876 and the “Capriccio Sinfonico”  in 1883. As in the case of the Messa, here you will find many features of the later Puccini. The “Capriccio” anticipates many themes we will meet in “La Bohème”.
Here Claudio Scimone conducts the Orchestre National de l’Opéra de Monte-Carlo in a very fine and idiomatic performance. The sound is anyway very good, vivid, clean and warm.
