Podcast: Off stage. On song. Krassimira Stoyanova airs Puccini.
March 31, 2017
Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini’s long list of given names was matched by his extensive output of operas, thirteen in all. These masterpieces for the stage have understandably occluded his remarkable set of songs for soprano and piano (and religious songs with organ accompaniment). All of these are now gathered together for the first time on one disc, performed by the radiant voice of Bulgarian soprano Krassimira Stoyanova with adroit accompaniment on piano and organ by Maria Prinz.
