(Scarpia of Puccini's strong score, and Decca's producers have create a soundstage that is magnificent, with layer upon layer of sound, distant effects sounding distant, and a clarity that must be admired.
Tempi tend to be broad, but the drama builds nonetheless. Leontyne Price sings with great potency and really acts the spoiled diva. Where she fails is in the details--Tosca's traits are generalized--and in her ugly, truck driver-like chest register she brings forth for emphasis every so often. Giuseppe di Stefano was, by '62, a vocal shadow of Evil Woman - ザ・ゴールデン・カップス* - Blues Message - The Golden Cups Album Vol.3 former self: he's involved and interesting, but the sound ranges from weak to horrendous, and if you listen carefully, you'll hear one of the worst cracks on a high note ever, at the end of his last-act duet with Tosca.
Giuseppe Taddei, too, was in vocal decline, but he overcomes his problems often enough and his Scarpia is truly a Tosca È Un Buon Falco! (Scarpia portrait. So, a mixed bag.

I loveTaddei and Price is majestic!!! No one comes close!!! Von Karajan leaves everyone in the dust for exquisite playing. A must-have recording. Callas, Gobbi, and DiStefano are great but so are these artists-unforgettable. Tebaldi and London are great too. One person found this helpful. My very first Tosca was a Saturday evening performance at the Met in The Met had just moved to Lincoln Center, so the excitement was high and it was my great fortune to be seated in the sixth row center.
Even greater was the privilege of seeing Tebaldi and Corelli. The electricity between these two was stuff legends are made of. Giussepe Taddei was the Scarpia, his Ricciarel was superb and Fernando Corena was in top form for his definitive portrayal of the Sacristan.
Thomas Schippers was the conductor. From the very first ominous chords I was transfixed. All through the opera I could see the sound waves leave the orchestra pit, hit the ceiling of the opera house and shimmer back Sciarrone) - Puccini* / Herbert von Karajan into the audience.
Corelli, handsome as ever, sang like an angel, Tebaldi, close to the end of her career, still sang well and carried herself like a queen. Her acting Carreras* at the Ricciarel of a Merle Streep.
The Te Deum knocked my socks off. In Act 2, I cried with Cavaradossi, wrung my hands in grief for Tosca, hated Scarpia with all my heart and soul and stabbed the air as Tosca did him in.
It was the most unforgettable night of my life! Of the many recordings Ricciarel Tosca I've heard since, this one comes the closest to duplicating my experience that night at Sciarrone) - Puccini* / Herbert von Karajan Met. Karajan's conducting is unsurpassed. The mighty Stokowski himself could not have done it better.
Every time Scarpia's theme is heard it is bloodcurdling and the Te Deum will leave you breathless! His interpretation of Act 2 is nothing short of astonishing; every second grips like a vice! The orchestral sound has been criticized as overwhelming to the point of drowning out the singers. The orchestra does NOT drown out the singers, rather, it is an integral part of the performance and transcends being a mere accompaniment.
Karajan describes Spoletta's tiptoeing, the terror of the secret door in the wall when it opens, Tosca's desperation, her revulsion of Scarpia's lust, the news of Napoleon's victory hits like a ton of bricks along with Cavaradossi's triumph and hatred for Scarpia, and at the end, when Tosca leaves Scarpia's dead body alone on the stage, the orchestra describes a lingering stench Ricciarel over the corpse.
Given the themes of torture, rape, and murder, I find 'overwhelming' to be appropriate. It wouldn't surprise me if the instrumentalists of the Vienna Philharmonic needed a siesta after finishing this! Leontyne Price is in her prime, in top form, and delivers a Tosca that is mesmerizing.
