About

Sony Classical is pleased to release Roberto Alagna’s critically acclaimed releases ‘Puccini in Love’ and ‘Caruso 1873’ in one set.

‘Caruso 1873’ is Alagna’s tribute to the Neapolitan singer who Alagna considers to be the greatest tenor of all time. Alagna honours his legendary predecessor with a selection of repertoire drawn from Caruso’s own recording career, which stretched from 1902 to 1920. ‘Caruso 1873’ offers many surprises and stretches from Handel and Pergolesi to verismo composers including Cilea and Leoncavallo, contemporaries of Caruso who wrote music for him. Puccini is represented by “Vecchia zimarra”, the bass Colline’s aria from La bohème which – as legend has it – Caruso once sang on stage standing in for an ailing colleague in perfect subterfuge.

‘Puccini in Love’ is the first album by the award-winning operatic tenor superstar Roberto Alagna and his wife, soprano Aleksandra Kurzak. Together they are the golden couple of the opera world. The album features some of Puccini’s greatest love duets including Madama Butterfly, La Bohème, Manon Lescaut as well as lesser known duets including Il Tabarro and La Rondine. ‘Puccini in Love’ showcases some of Puccini’s most emotional and passionate operatic work. Puccini’s command of melody is truly unique to his time and combined with his orchestration creates cinematic and passionate compositions.

Roberto Alagna has transcended genres through his music — not only is he an opera superstar but he has crossed over into other genres of music making his work easily accessible to many types of audiences.
