SOUNDING THE CENTURY
With Daniel Snowman.
Love and Art. "Women, wildfowl, and a good libretto" is how Puccini is said - only half in jest - to have characterised his lifelong preoccupations.

Perhaps it was Tosca herself who best expressed the composer's real obsessions when she sang Vissi d'Arte, Vissa d'Amore. Repeated from last Tuesday
