Puccini: Tosca
Giacomo Puccini, Victor De Sabata, ...

EMI Classics, 2004

Maria Callas is at the top of her game, and still very much in her vocal prime. Her dramatic approach to "Tosca" is arguably even better captured in the live recordings from Covent Garden a decade later, but at that point her voice had lost some of its bloom; depending on your tastes, this may be the better example of her doing the role. Tito Gobbi owned the role of Scarpia, and considered it his finest characterization. Although he and Callas ...

Maria Callas Remastered - Verdi Arias I (1958)
Giuseppe Verdi, Nicola Rescigno, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

This recital brings together three operas from the earlier years of Verdi's career (Nabucco, Ernani and Macbeth) and one of his greatest mature masterpieces (Don Carlo). Callas sang all of them on stage apart from Ernani, and Lady Macbeth proved a triumph for her when she opened the La Scala season in December 1952. Gramophone greeted this recital by saying: 'Mme Callas has seldom had such a field day and her dramatic instinct is well nigh ...

Maria Callas - La Callas... Toujours

Warner Classics, 2002

Maria Callas is the quintessential diva who changed the face of the opera in the 20th century. The repertoire in this performance shows Callas at her best, both in recital and as an operatic actress. Verdi, Rossini, and Bellini were three composers at the heart of Maria Callas's career. Her personal life was of tragic operatic dimensions and perhaps no role comes closer to the essence of Callas than Floria Tosca. The second half to the program ...

Maria Callas Remastered - Lyric and Coloratura Arias (1954)
Umberto Giordano, Arrigo Boito, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

As this recital amply demonstrates, Maria Callas encompassed an extraordinary range of roles. She is as convincing in the pinpoint coloratura of Lakmé's 'Bell Song' ('Her chromatic scale is beautifully done and she sails up to the region known as in alt with the greatest ease,' said Gramophone) as in the sweeping, richly coloured lines of Maddalena's 'La mamma morta' from Andrea Chénier, famously and movingly featured on the soundtrack of the ...
  
  











  



  
Verdi: La Traviata (complete opera live 1955) with Maria Callas, Giuseppe di Stefano, Carlo Maria Giulini, ...
Giuseppe Verdi, Orchestra e coro del Teatro alla Scala, ...

EMI Classics, 2004

This live recording of the 1955 Visconti production at La Scala is the best of the available Maria Callas Traviata s. Aside from a minor pitch problem or two, she's in great voice, coloring phrases to reveal character and investing the coloratura with variety and passion. Her "Addio del passato" is heart-breaking. She fully captures Violetta's pride and vulnerability in the scene with Germont, though her partner, Ettore Bastianini, sings ...

Maria Callas Remastered - Puccini Arias (1954)
Giacomo Puccini, Tullio Serafin, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

Callas came to be closely identified with Tosca, and it was the only Puccini role she sang with any frequency during her reign as a prima donna. Turandot had figured prominently in her early career, and she performed Cio-Cio San (Madama Butterfly) three times in Chicago in 1955, but all the other characters in this recital did not figure in her stage repertoire. Yet, as Gramophone said when this album was first released: 'To each and every aria ...
  
  











  



  
Maria Callas Remastered - Verdi: Rigoletto (1955)
Giuseppe Verdi, Tullio Serafin, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

Callas only sang Gilda in Rigoletto in one run of performances, in Mexico City in 1952, and she recorded the role three years later. She moves beyond the girlish tone and sparkling coloratura of the character's first scenes to create a figure of tragic stature as events unfold. 'Once heard, this rendering is never likely to be forgotten,' was Gramophone's judgement on her interpretation, and the same could apply to Tito Gobbi's, embodying every ...

Maria Callas Remastered - Puccini: Madama Butterfly (1955)
Giacomo Puccini, Herbert von Karajan, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

A famous backstage photo was taken in Chicago after one of just three performances that Callas gave of Madama Butterfly; it shows the soprano in her Japanese costume, snarling furiously at a bailiff who had served a writ on her - the very image of the tempestuous diva. By contrast, in her recording of the role, 'it is, miraculously,' as the critic John Osborne observed, 'the 15-year old girl and not the great Callas who stands before us.' Her ...
