"Four Stars ... remains one of the finest versions, with Leontyne Price at the peak of her form and Di Stefano singing most sensitively. But Karajan deserves equal credit with the principal singers and the sound is first class ..."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

"It is a joy to hear Puccini's orchestration ... brought out with such precision ... Karajan's impressiveness consists of more than drawing brilliant playing from the Vienna Philharmonic ... (his) control of tension shows itself at its most impressive ... Price pours forth a flood of rich, glorious tone and her attention to detail is exemplary."
- Gramophone

"The sound effects come across as vividly as ever, including hands down the best cannon shot accompaniment ... the recording has a clarity and presence that fully complement the dramatic reading of the score ... this Decca set very much has its own strengths ... Price understands that the music can speak for itself. Her performance has no rivals for sheer gorgeousness ... the Vienna Philharmonic roars and purrs under Karajan's leadership like a barely domesticated lion ... for lovers of this opera who do not know this recording, get it. It makes its own case for greatness ..."
- Opera Today

Remastered and re-released in early 2017 to celebrate the 90th birthday of star soprano Leontyne Price, this legendary performance of Puccini's Tosca from Herbert von Karajan and the Wiener Philharmoniker was recorded in 1962.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
