    Puccini Scherzo for strijngs cordes, Capriccio sinfonico, Crisantemi

    Born into a long line of church composers and destined by family tradition to be an organist and choirmaster, Puccini ultimately became more famous in the field of opera than in that of sacred music. Messa di Gloria, a work of his youth, was never published during his lifetime. The score, whose themes were reused by the musician in Edgar and Manon Lescaut, prefigured the style of the great operas he would later compose. And yet... Conceived for a large ensemble, this Mass is an interesting success in which we see the musician experimenting with perspectives that are as original as they are modern, including a surprisingly luxuriant orchestration. Combined with the Cappricio Sinfonico, one of the composer's rare symphonic works, this concert allows us to delve into the most intimate and spiritual side of Puccini.
