Through its CSO Resound label, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra releases its 11th recording with Riccardo Muti: Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana. It’s available beginning Sept. 16 for digital download and streaming, as well as at symphonystore.com. The CD version, which will be available in late 2022, may be pre-ordered at online retail outlets. Of Cavalleria rusticana, Muti has said, “Mascagni was a wonderful composer, and this is a great opera. Cavalleria rusticana requires a certain knowledge of the culture of Sicily and southern Italy. There are elements of the opera that are full of blood and full of passion, yet it is never vulgar. It retains a dignity and a sense of honor, always.”
