Most widely held works by Fiorenza Cossotto
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

106 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's beloved opera overflows with marvelous arias, ensembles, and choruses--all superbly sung by this all-star cast, under the direction of James Levine. Aprile Millo (Leonore) is in love with the mysterious troubadour Manrico (Luciano Pavarotti) but the nefarious Count Di Luna (Sherrill Milnes) wants her for himself. Add to the roiling drama the mysterious old gypsy Azucena (the intense Fiorenza Cossotto in her final Met performance), and it's a situation that is disastrous for the characters--though it inspired some of the best-known music in all of Italian opera

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

53 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

79 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Montserrat Caballé is one of the few sopranos who have triumphed at the Met in the Herculean role of Norma. She was acclaimed for the astonishing beauty of her voice, her unbelievable breath control, and the ability to spin out shimmering soft tones that sent the audience into a frenzy. When she brought those formidable gifts to Bellini's magical score, the result was electrifying. Fiorenza Cossotto is Norma's friend, Adalgisa, and her rival for the affections of Pollione (Carlo Cossutta, in his Met debut)
