Most widely held works by Renato Bruson
Tosca : highlights by Giacomo Puccini( )

58 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La acción transcurre en Roma, el 14 de junio de 1800, cuando Napoleón vence a los austríacos al mando del general Michael von Melas en la batalla de Marengo. Musicalmente, la obra se mantiene en el estilo desarrollado por Puccini hasta el momento: continuidad del discurso musical, roto apenas por una o dos arias. Las escenas más impactantes son el Te Deum del final del primer acto, y las arias Vissi d'arte (para Tosca) y E lucevan le stelle (para Mario). Dramáticamente, el segundo acto es de una intensidad inigualada por otra obra de Puccini

Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

80 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El principal atractivo de esta grabación es el espectacular registro sonoro del sello Decca en el que podemos apreciar la dirección brillante, equilibrada y dinámica del maestro Solti. Los cantantes son de reconocida fama pero sus voces no se corresponden con las características que Verdi diseñó para cada personaje. Aún así, la técnica depurada de Pavarotti, la profesionalidad de la Price y el trabajo actoral de Bruson, son elementos más que suficientes para poder disfrutar de esta versión

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak.

Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate
