About this playlist
There's no denying that Puccini is known and loved because of his monumental talent for opera writing. His gift for vocal composition also spawned a mass and a selection of songs. This playlist, however, features a handful of works he composed for solo piano, chamber ensemble or orchestra. Although they may not possess the hit potential of 'Nessun Dorma' or 'O Mio Babbino Caro', these pieces have their own beauty and story to tell, the devastating 'Crisantemi' in particular.
