Voce d'Angelo: The Complete Decca Recordings / Renata Tebaldi, soprano [66 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

A special edition to mark the 10th anniversary of the passing of one of the most beloved singers of all time – the incomparable Renata Tebaldi. This set marks the first ever comprehensive overview of Tebaldi's important recorded legacy. It includes her complete opera recordings as well as opera and song recitals. This Italian soprano has been a favourite of opera lovers from her first recordings in 1947. An exclusive artist with Decca for her entire career, Tebaldi has left a tremendous legacy of complete operas, arias and songs with stellar colleagues including Luciano Pavarotti, Mario del Monaco, Giulietta Simionato, Ettore Bastianini and more.
This set includes Tebaldi's complete opera recordings (two versions for La Bohème, Madama Butterfly, Tosca and Aida), as well as her only recording of Verdi's Requiem (1951), conducted by Victor de Sabata. Tebaldi so loved her live performance of Verdi's Requiem, fifty years after the composer's death, that it was played during her funeral at her request. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Renata Tebaldi was the great rival to Maria Callas. While the former's strengths lay in her superb dramatic skills and fiery temperament, Tebaldi's attributes – exquisite beauty of tone and subtle musicianship – provided the perfect foil. Over 50 years later, they still cast a shadow over their successors and continue to fascinate new generations of opera lovers.
