Notes & Reviews:

For LP collectors, the soprano Maria Caniglia is known mainly as the partner of Beniamino Gigli. Together with him she not only made a number of recordings of duets, but also sang many roles in recordings of complete operas (The Masked Ball, Aida, Andrea Chenier and Tosca). Even more highly rated than these recordings, which were partially made at the end of her career, are her solo recordings which were made earlier when her rich, full voice was still fresh. Maria Caniglia received her vocal training at the Conservatory in Naples, her birthplace. In 1930 she made her debut in Turin as Chrysothemis in Elektra. After performances in Rome, Florence and Bergamo, she soon found her way to La Scala, where she became a member of the company in January 1931. In the two decades she sang there, she was able to rise to the highest artistic rank as a lyric and dramatic soprano. She had a particular affinity for Wagnerian roles; one of her most famous parts was as Elsa in Der Meistersinger. She also appeared in many premieres of contemporary pieces. She made guest appearances at the Metropolitan Opera (1938-1939) as well as Covent Garden and other major international opera houses. Verdi roles stood in the first rank in Caniglia's repertoire. After leaving her stage career, she dedicated the rest of her life to teaching, spending her final years in Milan.
