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. While Pagliacci's regular companion piece, Cavalleria rusticana, figured prominently in Callas's early career, Leoncavallo's one-acter had no place in her stage repertoire. But as Gramophone wrote of this recording: 'When Callas [as Nedda] and Gobbi [as Tonio] are on the stage the drama is strikingly unfolded ... There has been [no Nedda] more urgently or pressingly feminine than Callas ... the only one to create real tension at the idea of Canio reading her thoughts; the only one to give meaning ... to her mood as the birds fly overhead; and ... the only one to greet her lover with delight.'
