Puccini Gianni Schicchi - Vocal Score

In 1916-1917 Puccini chose an opera buffa as the third and last `panel` of his Trittico ( Triptych ). While searching for the right subject, as with Suor Angelica, Puccini finally opted for a subject suggested by Giovacchino Forzano: Gianni Schicchi . The final panel of his Trittico is based on an episode from Canto XXX of Dante's Inferno, which tells the tale of the wealthy Buoso Donati: his relatives gather around his deathbed with exaggerated demonstrations of grief, obviously expecting to be amply compensated by their inheritance. Gianni Schicchi clearly shows Puccini's feeling for traditional comedy and the influence of Verdi. This makes it stand apart not only from the other works of the Tryptich, but also from the contemporary operatic production as a whole.
