Product Notes

This Tosca, made in 1953 with the forces of La Scala, is a landmark in recording history. Conducted with searing intensity by Victor de Sabata, it teams Callas with two of her closest colleagues, the tenor Giuseppe di Stefano and the baritone Tito Gobbi - a performer who could rival Callas in dramatic finesse and power. Tosca's aria 'Vissi d'arte' (I lived for art) has come to be seen as Callas's personal manifesto. / Abbey Road Studios engineers have returned to the original studio master tapes in 2014, bringing new clarity and brilliance to a classic interpretation: 'One of the great classics of the gramophone. Wonderful as Gobbi's and Di Stefano's performances are, and superbly dramatic as de Sabata's conducting is, it is the unique Callas in the title role who provides the greatest marvel. Callas is incomparable as Tosca'. (Gramophone) Triple vinyl LP pressing.
