Wiener Philharmoniker, Christoph von Dohnányi


It is often said that Richard Strauss had a lifelong love affair with the soprano voice, and it is certainly true that many of his finest operatic roles were written with that voice in mind. In addition, the quality of his writing for sopranos regularly shows their instruments off to maximum advantage. Sopranos have genuine cause to the grateful to him.

Collected here are some of Strauss’s greatest heroines – whether regal (the Marschallin in Rosenkavalier), demented (Salome and Elektra), or crafty (the Empress in Frau ohne Schatten). These highlights feature not only great solo scenes (the final scene of Salome, Elektra’s monologue) but also some sublime ensembles (Arabella, Ariadne auf Naxos, the closing scene of Rosenkavalier). The singers represent some of the leading Strauss sopranos of their day – Della Casa, Guede, Crespin, Söderström, Silja and, of course, Nilsson – as well as some of the great Strauss conductors: Solti, Böhm, Dohnányi. Many of the recordings were made by the Wiener Philharmoniker in one of Decca’s iconic recording venues, the Sofiensaal, over a period of some twenty years

Leontyne Price (Amelia), Carlo Bergonzi (Riccardo), Robert Merrill (Renato), Shirley Verrett (Ulrica), Reri Grist (Oscar), Mario Basiola Jnr (Silvano), Ezio Flagello (Samuele), Ferruccio Mazzoli (Tom)

RCA Italiana Opera Chorus & RCA Italiana Opera Orchestra, Erich Leinsdorf

CD includes a booklet with a three-language synopsis (English/French/German), full cast list and detailed track list.

“With Leontyne Price's regal Amelia, Carlo Bergonzi's fervent Riccardo, Robert Merrill's imposing Renato, and Reri Grist's button-cute Oscar, Erich Leinsdorf's 1966 Ballo with the RCA Italiana Opera forces still packs a real punch; the eerie melodrama of both the incantation-scene (a hair-raising Shirley Verrett as Ulrica) and the graveyard sequence chill to the bone.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical

Puccini: Tosca

Puccini: Tosca


Leontyne Price (Tosca), Plácido Domingo (Cavaradossi), Sherrill Milnes (Scarpia), Paul Plishka (Il Sagristano), Clifford Grant (Angelotti), Francis Egerton (Spoletta), John Gibbs (Sciarrone)

New Philharmonia Orchestra, Zubin Mehta

Tosca is one of Puccini’s most popular operas and a tremendous vehicle for great singing actors offering endless dramatic possibilities for the three central characters. The central role of Tosca dominates the opera and is a role Leontyne Price, with her extraordinary vocal and acting skills has excelled in. Partnering Tosca as her lover Cavaradossi is PlÁcido Domingo, while Sherrill Milnes gives a powerful performance as the evil Baron Scarpia.

Recorded in 1973

“Leontyne Price's… 'Vissi d'arte' is artistry incarnate… Domingo sounds young and ardent as Cavaradossi, and Milnes's villain is the most complete I've ever heard, projecting the meaning of every line with the full range of vocal colour. Zubin Mehta's brazen approach is matched by an audio spectacular.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2009 *****

“I simply had to choose Leontyne Price in the role of Tosca; the emotion in her voice at the end of Vissi d'arte is just heartbreaking. Plácido Domingo is at his expressive best as Cavaradossi, bringing a tear to the eye in his Act Three aria, E lucevan le stelle. With Sherrill Milnes as a truly menacing Scarpia, this is an ideal cast, all marshalled superbly by Zubin Mehta conducting the New Philharmonia Orchestra.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, July 2014
