Puccini: Tosca - Lorengar, Fr. Tagliavini, Wixell, Van Dam; Maazel. Berlin, 1969


Listen to a Sample:



  • Although possibly a shade or two lighter than your average Tosca, Pilar Lorengar manages the treacherous role with élan.
  • Ingvar Wixell achieves sufficient menace as Scarpia without ever sacrificing the beauty of his suave baritone.
  • You wouldn't think that Puccini would be a good fit for Lorin Maazel, but he brings detailed insight to the score as well as a keen sense for dramatic pacing.
  • The sound is excellent.


  • None to mention.
