    I'd advise you to complement your collection with the Met DVD mentioned earlier (with Scotto) which sets the bar very high both for singing and acting (Gobbi aside, but there is no complete Schicchi on video available as far as I know). But believe me, Gabriel Bacquier is a delightful Schicchi!

    There are plenty of complete Gianni Schichi's on DVD:

    Schichi - Domingo.jpg

    As well as those in the complete Trittico sets from the ROH and La Scala.

Both feature traditional staging and costumes, and the singing is preferable to more recent live video recordings under Levine and Pappano. I personally can't stand Renata Scotto and her pinched, shrill voice, and though Cornell MacNeil was a great singer, he had a serious wobble by the time the Levine recording was made. Maldoveanu was the best in that production. The fact that Lucio Gallo, Michele and Schicchi for Pappano, is a major star today proves standards have declined. (He sang Rance at the 100th anniversary of Fanciulla at the Met. In a century we went from Pasquale Amato to Lucio Gallo. Yikes.)

    This one features the great Carlo Tagliabue (a bit past his prime, but no wobble in sight), as well as a still-outstanding Clara Petrella, easily the best Giorgetta on record imo. Picchi is not as good as Scarlini in the 1949 audio-only recording.


    Capecchi is an excellent Schicchi.
    Are these available on DVD anywhere? I'm not sure where the uploader got them.

    DVDs appear on Premiere Opera's website - maybe the uploader ripped those to YouTube? I don't have copies to compare quality...

    Isn't Premiere Opera a pirate company? How would they have these if they were never released elsewhere I wonder?

    I wish the Met would release this performance of Suor Angelica: https://youtu.be/hi-QEKZA-LY

    I just got the 2008 remastering (newest remastering) of the EMI Il Trittico set in the mail. It sounds pretty good. Even though the first two are in mono, it's probably the most tolerable mono I've ever heard. It looks like this remastering is slowly becoming hard to find unfortunately.

    The best suor angelica, imo, if you can find it is a mono 1950 recording with Rosanna Carteri, wonderful singing!
