Ricordi vs. Schirmer, no contest
O dear, please don’t tell me this review is attached to something other than Ricordi. This review is for Ricordi.
A Gorgeous Edition of Puccini’s Masterpiece!
This is a beautiful edition of La Bohème. The cover and binding is gorgeous (hardcover is always best) and the words and notation are clear, crisp, and readable. The text is only in Italian, but that doesn’t really bother me, nor will it bother most singers. There is, however, an English synopsis in the beginning.This gorgeous edition of a timeless masterpiece must be in your library!
Learn from the experience of others: always buy the cloth-bound!!
These Ricordi cloth-bound editions are the most well-bound vocal scores I own. In comparison to the soft-cover editions of these operas, these cloth-bound ones actually stay flat on the piano, and have withstood daily wear and tear surprisingly well. This is the best edition to get of the great Italian standards (except for Mozart!), so be sure to get the cloth-bound—it’s well worth the small difference in price!
Viva la Ricordi e Puccini!!!!!!!
Excellent score in quality and value! There’s nothing like a fresh RICORDI score, free of editorial and linguistic mistakes. Thank you, Amazon! As promised, I received it in 2 business days! Excellent customer service! Bravo!
Great buy and feels like an antique book
Beautifully bound copy of my favorite opera, the low price was surprising, so I was worried, but it is a great edition.
Schirmer often has little mistakes and the piano reduction can be difficult to read.
This is so much better than paper back scores. If you are contemplating getting those, or this – get this! It’s alot cheaper too, and it looks excellent! All of the Soprano’s will really have something cry about now, because your score will be so much more awesome than theirs.
I purchased this score thinking of how many times I will sing the opera and I was blown away by the cover, the texture of the pages and the porosity of the paper itself… Seriously wonderful specially if plan on having this score for life.
Beautiful cloth-bound hardcover
This Boheme is a sturdy addition to my score collection. Lyrics are in Italian only so you are not even tempted to get the wrong English translation in your head. The binding is strong and flexible. It makes me never want to buy a Schirmer paperback again.
