Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In Freni and Domingo the performance has of course a real Tosca and a real Cavaradossi, and for the great and unflawed splendour of Domingo's singing there can be nothing but gratitude... [T]he personal touches in his characterization..., however familiar, still seem spontaneous." -- Gramophone [7/1992] "In Freni and Domingo the performance has of course a real Tosca and a real Cavaradossi, and for the great and unflawed splendour of Domingo's singing there can be nothing but gratitude...
