The musical notes of this Puccini masterpiece provide the starting point and foundation for a new, highly successful collaboration between Riccardo Chailly and Davide Livermore. In their interpretation, there is 'no moment, no movement that goes against the musical meaning' (Chailly). The result is an energetic, authentic and atmospherically strong Boheme, 'in which every sacred phrase receives its own orchestral color, its own dynamic, and its own expression'.
Recorded live at the Palau de les Arts "Reina Sofia", Valencia, 12 and 15 December 2012 .
