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. Callas's first stage appearances in Verdi's Un ballo in maschera came at La Scala in1957, a year in which Milan also saw her in La sonnambula and Anna Bolena. As in this recording, made the year before, she shared Verdi's most spectacular soprano-tenor duet (inAct II) with Giuseppe di Stefano. This was the last time Callas and Di Stefano appeared together in opera, though they reunited in the 1970s to direct I vespri siciliani in Turin and to give a series of joint concerts in Europe, the USA, Canada,South Korea and Japan. Gramophone judged this recording of Ballo to be 'one of Callas's mostcompelling assumptions'.Notes & Reviews:
