Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, January 2012
In 1953 [Callas] is caught at her peak, her voice perfectly under control and the characteristic insights she brought to its tiniest details fully developed...[de Sabata's] combination of fire and clarity make this the most exciting Tosca on disc...Opera sets rarely get absolutely everything right; this one does.

Penguin Guide
There has never been a finer recorded performance of Tosca...Gobbi makes the unbelievably villainous police chief into a genuine three-dimensional character, and Di Stefano...was at his finest...The conducting of De Sabata is spaciously lyrical as well as sharply dramatic...it brings a transfer which, taken from the original tapes, has the voices brighter and more immediate than on the Naxos set.
