Puccini: Tosca / Renata Tebaldi, Gianni Poggi, Giangiacomo Guelfi; Arturo Basile [Tokyo, 1961]

Album Summary

>Puccini, Giacomo : Tosca
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

It's his greatest, or at least his most popular, opera, and she one of the finest interpreters of its title role. Though she seems somehow to have slipped from view when considering the greatest 20th c. sopranos, Renata Tebaldi is etched firmly into that mountainside with but few others. One of her great roles was, of course, Tosca, and she is heard here singing just this role in a 1961 live recording from Tokyo, Arturo Basile leading the NHK Symphony and Chorus. The cast is complementary to Tebaldi, with Giangiacomo Guelfi's Scarpia being the most notable. Remastered in 24bit/96kHs sound.
