Puccini: Canti per voce e pianoforte composed by Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924). Edited by Riccardo Pecci. This edition: Paperbound. German title: Lieder & Canti ed. Pecci. Collection. 88 pages. Published by Carus Verlag (CA.530100).
The present collection of 16 smaller vocal compositions is doubly a novelty: On the one hand, among these are three works presented here which were either lost for more than a century (Dios y Patria), or they were never published in their definitive form (Salve Regina and Ad una morta!). On the other hand, they appear here in the first critical edition of these vocal works ever published; through the consistent consultation of the original sources numerous false readings which had been handed down over the years could be corrected.
