La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )

The story of La bohème is the epitome of young starving artists whose lifestyles and escapades gave us the Bohemian genre. A notion of the poverty in which they are developing their artistic talents is evident from the very first scene as painter Marcello and poet Rodolfo try to keep warm by burning pages from Rodolfo's latest drama. Set in 1830s Paris, we follow the love between Mimi and Rodolfo as the young artists experience triumphs and tragedies.

Messa di gloria by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )
181 editions published between 1951 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 730 libraries worldwide
Choraline chorus rehearsal CDs are learning tools, not performances, and your vocal line is represented by an orchestral instrument, ensuring maximum clarity for your part while allowing you to hear other voice parts which are usually played by an organ. Additional clarity results from using the right-hand audio channel for your voice part and the left-hand channel for the other parts: adjusting the volume will therefore enable you to increase or decrease the volume of your part relative to the others. Neutral expression and tempi help you avoid bringing to rehearsal a performance style that might conflict with your conductor's aims.
