Notes & Reviews:
Maria Callas, one of the most celebrated sopranos of the 20th century, performed more roles by Verdi than by any other composer. With her supreme dramatic presence and stunning voice Callas is revered for her command of Verdi's style and her sensitive portrayal of his tragic heroines. This 8-CD collection captures all the drama of Callas's thrilling live performances in four of Verdi's greatest operatic masterpieces: Aida, MacBeth, La traviata and Un ballo in maschera. Verdi: Four legendary Live Performances is the perfect companion to the other exclusive Verdi sets to be released in 2013 to celebrate the bicentenary of the composer's birth.
