Carla Maria Verdino-S├╝llwold
Fanfare, September 2016

…this addition to Arthaus’s Legendary Performances series offers a solid, traditional account of Puccini’s opera that will be appealing to those who admire red-blooded verismo singing and like their opera “straight.”

Daniel Oren conducts the work with a driven intensity, whipping up the orchestra into swells of sound and propelling the drama forward in long, arching line. His reading of act III is especially passionate. And, fortunately, all the singers have robust, dramatic voices able to top the orchestra. Fiorenza Cedolins has a warm, lustrous dramatic soprano with an open, secure top and compelling musicality. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review
