Puccini: Tosca / Karajan, Price, Vienna PO

Album Summary

>Puccini, Giacomo : Tosca
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Price and Stefano are wonderfully rich-voiced and passionate, Taddei a hellishly charismatic Scarpia with Karajan balancing detail and drama superbly." -Gramophone Magazine

Penguin Guide
It remains one of the finest versions, with Leontyne Price at the peak of her form and Di Stefano singing most sensitively. But Karajan deserves equal credit with the principal singers, and the sound is first class.
