Vissi d'arte[edit]

A highly notable operatic soprano sings Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, and does it divinely. While not perfect, given the year, it's still very good indeed. This is one of the last recordings of Destinn during her prime: She was put under house arrest during WWI, and would not be able to return to the stage until 1919. The gap sent her career into a terminal decline, and, as far as I'm aware, there are no good recordings after 1914.
