Default Yes, it is

Cavalleria Rusticana is a great piece of art. I know it. I played it as second violin. Aestethically (is this correct?) is very romantic, but in the inside there is some modern points.

I think I have this ughi recording, I will have to check. Anyway, about Uto: He is very musical, but now is not in shape i think. I saw him in a TV show playing the Beethoven, and he was many times out of perfect pitch. Besides, his bow moves too much...
What is beyond the speaker?

I cannot withold you from the real Mascagni, one you will not find on Mascagni.org or any other bigraphy for that matter, only through records of my grandfather, having met him in South America under dubious circumstances ....

Mascagni worked as a very very poor music copier at a music publishing compmay. He lived above the place he worked and his boss/owner of the company lived next doors.
One day his boss organized a contest for an easy opera in one act based on sicilian paysants. The first and only prize would be 6 gold coins.

Mascagnie asked for paper, pen and ink so he could join. His boss lend him the items.
The evening before the deadline, Mascagni had only managed to write 7 notes on a sheet , a little man came up to the attic where Mascagni lived and asked if he could help Pietro.
Pietro let him in, and the little man started dictating the notes of the now ever famous Cavaleria Rusticana.
Pietro asked if he had to pay him, after all he had no money at all. The little guy, slowly changed his looks and answered: only with your soul my friend, only with your soul. Turned out that it was the devil in person!
The rest is history .... or maybe not:
Mascagni, who won the contest, had to give his boss 1 coin for
the paper, ink and pen.
Another man who ended second threatened Mascagni to death, as he believed that Mascagni had been favored by his own boss, the same who organised the contest. So Mascagni gave him the balance : 5 coins.
Did he sell his soul? hummm.... I will leave that up to you dear reader, he never wrote anything like that again, L'amico Fritz is hardly something comparable.... and certainly not a masterpiece.
Mascagni died together with the rest of worl's evil Mussolini, Hitler .......... in 1945
