Puccini’s ‘Il tabarro’ now available on Pentatone
Pentatone’s new recording of Puccini’s Il tabarro with the Dresdner Philharmonie is now available on CD format and via streaming services – purchase and platform options can be found here. Marek Janowski conducts the Dresdner Philharmonie, the MDR Leipzig Radio Choir, and a brilliant cast of vocal soloists, including Brian Jagde in his role debut as Luigi, Melody Moore as Giorgetta, and Lester Lynch in the role of Michele.
More information and purchase links are available via Jagde’s Recordings.
“Jagde has established himself internationally as an accomplished Italian spinto tenor. Since the Dresden concerts he has sung Turiddu in Amsterdam and repeated the role in Vienna … the tenor portrays well the desperation of his final scenes.” David Shengold – Opera Magazine
