EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s no funny business in conductor Riccardo Frizza’s reading of Puccini’s masterpiece La bohème: every melody, cadence, and mood change receives absolute reverence and discipline. The result is a beautiful synthesis, as the vocalists achieve an impeccable balance with the orchestra, who handles Puccini’s tender, forceful writing with leisurely grace.
