Programme

“Puccini’s Rarities” is a concert that aims to honour the renowned Italian composer, Giacomo Puccini, on the 100th anniversary of his passing. This concert seeks to shed light on the versatility and breadth of Puccini’s musical genius by showcasing his instrumental works, such as String Quartet in D major, Crisantemi, Adagio in A major, Foglio d’Album, as well as solo vocal works beyond the realm of opera, including Terra e mare, Avanti Urania, and Sole e amore, etc. By exploring this lesser known aspect of Puccini’s works, the concert offers a fresh perspective on the composer’s artistic legacy.
