Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Gobbi's...genially authoritative Schicchi [has] seldom been equalled, let alone surpassed. De los Angeles's...Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi is enchanting... In Gianni Schicchi, Carlo del Monte as Rinuccio also looks like under-casting but in fact he's one of the few tenors who've recorded the part who sounds convincingly young, and his ardent praise of Florence and the 'new men' who are reinvigorating the city is proudly sung. Here, too, Gobbi is surrounded by a constellation of pungent character actors...

-- Michael Oliver, Gramophone [6/1993, reviewing Il Trittico, EMI 64165]
