Twenty-five years after his opening album Manera, Fru-Fru, Manera, Fagner commemorates his highly successful career interpreting old hits sided by important or successful artists as guest stars: the fundamental samba singer Ângela Maria; the decisive composer Chico Buarque; the selling phenomenon Zezé di Camargo e Luciano; the important composers/performers Djavan, Luís Melodia, and Milton Nascimento; the great interpreter Emílio Santiago; and several others.
Tosca has been well-served on CD, with excellent stereo versions by Renata Tebaldi and Leontyne Price, as well as the definitive monophonic Maria Callas interpretation on EMI. What lifts this new Tosca from the pack of also-rans is Angela Gheorghiu's intense portrait of the heroine. She sings with sweep and passion, convincing you of Tosca's varied emotional states, from love and jealousy to honor and desperation. Her stabbing scene is chilling; she spits out the repeated word "Mouri" (die) with terrifying power. Only in a slightly bumpy "Vissi d'arte" does she fall ever-so-slightly short, wanting the fullness of a true spinto voice to fill out Puccini's arching line… –Dan Davis
There’s something about the natural flow of a live recording, particularly when it just happens to be recorded rather than being a tense special event, and as here where punctuating applause is left out. Lovely, melodic, Finnish.
