Maria Callas Remastered - Puccini: Tosca (1953)
Giacomo Puccini, Victor de Sabata, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

This Tosca, made in 1953 with the forces of La Scala, is a landmark in recording history.Conducted with searing intensity by Victor de Sabata, it teams Callas with two of her closest colleagues, the tenor Giuseppe di Stefano and the baritone Tito Gobbi - a performer who could rival Callas in dramatic finesse and power. Tosca's aria 'Vissi d'arte' (I lived for art) has come to be seen as Callas's personal manifesto.

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 - 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 ...


Maria Callas Remastered - The First Recordings (1949)
Richard Wagner, Vincenzo Bellini, ...

Recorded in 1949 when Maria Callas was just 25, this debut recital encapsulates the young soprano's astonishing maturity, versatility and technical finesse.

As Gramophone, which described the recital as 'incandescent and spellbinding', wrote: 'The Liebestod is a beautiful example of sustained interpretation, with a ...

Maria Callas Remastered - Verdi Arias II (1963-64)
Giuseppe Verdi, Nicola Rescigno, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

Only one of the roles represented in this Verdi recital figured in Callas's stage repertoire: Elisabetta in Don Carlo, which she performed at La Scala in 1954. From the same opera she also sings Eboli's mezzo-soprano showpiece 'O don fatale', a feature of her recitals in the early 1960s. An adventurous choice are Mina's arias from the rarely-heard Aroldo (Verdi's reworking of Stiffelio): 'The vivid pronunciation of the words, the burning emotion ...


Maria Callas Remastered - Rossini: Il Barbiere di Siviglia (1957)
Gioachino Rossini, Alceo Galliera, ...

Warner Classics, 2014

As she demonstrated in both Il barbiere di Siviglia and Il turco in Italia, Callas, the great tragedienne, could also turn her skills to comedy. As it happened, the 1956 La Scala production of Rossini's most popular opera did not prove a great success with audiences, but its stars - Callas, Tito Gobbi and Luigi Alva - reassembled in London the following year for this recording. Callas sang the role of Rosina at its original mezzo-soprano pitch ...
