Giacomo Puccini: A Discography

by Roger Flury (Author)

In Giacomo Puccini: A Discography, librarian and music historian Roger Flury brings together information on nearly 10,000 recordings of Giacomo Puccini's music. Flury looks at each of Puccini's operas chronologically from Le Villi to Turandot, followed by sections on Puccini's instrumental, chamber, orchestral, and solo vocal works. Details of each complete opera are listed by recording date, followed by excerpts in the order in which they occur in the opera. Recordings of each aria are listed alphabetically by the name of the artist. For ease of use, Flury establishes as the main criteria for inclusion those recordings assigned a commercial issue number and available for purchase, ensuring that this audio recording history of Puccini is free of gaps.
