Notes & Reviews:
Maria Callas is regarded as one of the greatest divas of all time, whose recording are standards by which all subsequent performances are judged. The 10-CDs of Live Recordings capture her on some of the greatest nights of her career and contain an interview by American Opera commentator Edward Downes. The 13-CDs of Studio Recordings include not only scenes and arias from her stage repertoire, but also other pieces that she never sang on stage. Special highlights of this set are two CDs of rarities, including a test from a 1953 session with producer Walter Legge as well as a recently discovered item from an aborted project of duets with Franco Corelli. These recital performances are an invaluable addition to Callas's recorded legacy and show yet another side of this unique diva, whose vocal achievements stand unrivalled today and probably for all time. The eye-catching clamshell boxes are a collectors delight: put next to each other: the individual live and Studio Recital boxes form Callas's portrait.
