Puccini: Tosca - Stella, Cioni, L. Quilico; Basile. Roma, 1965


Listen to a Sample:


This recording shows the great Tosca of Antonietta Stella in glorious sound.  In 1965 the voice was still refulgent and shows a darker hue to it than it did in the 50s.  She is joined by the great, and under recorded Louis Quilico.  His Scarpia is an excellent balance between aristocrat and sociopath.  Renato Cioni is a sturdy and elegant Cavaradossi.
