HD-Vinyl 24/96 (RCA) Giacomo Puccini – Tosca (Price/Domingo/Milnes)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Bob for this beauty
There are so many good and very good “Toscas” out there, that you have only the embarrassement of choice. I used to own back in the 90s not less than 15 different releases on vinyl/CD/Video. Now only 6 and among them this one on CD, only and exclusively because of the most malefic Baron Scarpia you can imagine, even more terriffic than on a later Decca release, with Freni and Pavarotti. Sherrill Milnes is, after magnificent and legendary Tito Gobbi, the pure evil called Scarpia. Not at least, Leontyne Price (1st black opera singer, who became a superstar) and a young Placido Domingo are marvellous in their roles. Maestro Mehta shows here that he was born for conducting operas, forcing musicians and singers to give their best. Absolutely RECOMMENDED!!!!

One of my favorite versions of The Planets, this was a particularly difficult album to clean up, due to all the extremely quiet passages. Still, I think it came out pretty well.
