Notes & Reviews:

CALLAS REMASTERED: The Complete Studio Recordings: Maria Callas's complete discography (for the first time joining her EMI Classics and Warner Classics recordings), painstakingly re-mastered using the original tapes, includes a deluxe complete box set of her complete opera and recital recordings, individual recordings, a compilation and two vinyl releases. Although the bel canto repertoire was crucial to Callas's career, and she played a significant part in reviving its fortunes, she never sang any of the roles - from both serious and comic operas - that are represented in this recital. Gramophone said: 'It is extraordinary how the whole quality and colour of Callas' voice changes as she moves from one character to another - for example, from the grand manner appropriate to the Babylonian queen [Semiramide] to the passion of the spoilt Italian duchess [LucreziaBorgia] and thence to the simple charm of the country woman Adina [L'elisir d'amore].'
