Listen to a Sample:
This performance of Tosca comes courtesy of the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and features Regine Crespin in the title role. Crespin's top may not have always been reliable, but here it is gleaming and enormous. But more than just a powerhouse, she brought a sensuality to everything she did and this Tosca is both hot-tempered and hot blooded. Gianni Raimondi is solid and sweet-toned as Cavaradossi and Giusepped Taddei is terrifying as Scarpia. The sound is very good.
Régine Crespin sings "Da geht er hin" from Act I of Der Rosenkavalier.
