Rostropovich's 1976 Paris version boasts two great personalities: Galina Vishnevskaya, surprisingly vivid as the prima donna in distress, and the late Franco Bonisolli -- this his best monument on disc -- a fiery Cavaradossi.

Mstislav Rostropovich, Orchestre National de France, "Puccini: 'Tosca'". Other
recordings of "Tosca" get the hype, but this darkly passionate 1976 set, available on CD for the first time, may top them all. As tender as she is imperious, Galina Vishnevskaya makes sparks fly opposite Franco Bonisolli's red-blooded Cavaradossi and Matteo Manuguerra's suave and sinister Scarpia.

. . . [Rostropovich] obtient du National des phrasÚs, des couleurs, des nuances dont on aime la poÚsie.
