Notes & Reviews:
The set contains some classic things, above all in Callas's several confrontations with her Selim, the wonderfully grave Nicola Rossi-Lemeni, and her ageing husband, Geronio, sung here with all the right hang-dog inflexions by France Calabrese. It is the special glory of this recording of Il turco in Italia that it allows us to hear Callas at her idiosyncratic best not as some dominating central presence but as part of a finely-honed team.
