Giacomo Puccini: Preludio Sinfonico

Giacomo Puccini - Preludio Sinfonico

Last updated Mar 3, 2020 | Published on Jul 23, 2018

Written by Gianmaria Griglio

Puccini’s Preludio Sinfonico was composed for his final 1882 exam at the conservatory in Milan. The performance was everything but a success. Though you can spot some Lohengrin here and there (among others), the anticipation of Manon Lescaut is fascinating!
