A recent discovery!,
This review is from: Puccini: Tosca (Audio CD)
with several classic recordings on the shelves I shouldn't be adding yet another set of Tosca to the groaning shelves but this is good and again it is one of the recordings that has fallen into the runner up lanes . All of the celebrated soloists are excellent, the sound is a joy and I don't share the view that many favour that this conductor is the weak link in this recording. From first note to last I was gripped by the drama. comparing it to several versions owned it is one of the most clearly recorded and atmospheric accounts of this opera, and I cannot understand how it can have been relegated to second division. much to savour...
