100 years since Maria Callas was born! The best of Callas' masterful singing, now available exclusively on red-colored analog LP disc100 years after her birth, nearly 60 years after her last opera performance, and more than 45 years after her death, Maria Callas is still an integral part of opera history.
Her perhaps unprecedented emphasis on musical integrity and dramatic veracity transformed the perception of the bel canto repertoire in the early 19th century. Maria Callas is said to have changed the history of opera. Known as the Prima Donna Assoluta, she continues to captivate as an artist of the highest caliber, a woman, and an icon of style. Her interpretations are compelling not only for their musical integrity but also for their dramatic truth, and her voice, with its extraordinary range, is as unique as her absolute sense of phrasing.
She brings operatic heroines to life, magically shaping and coloring their timbres, and her insightful use of the libretto text in her singing continues to captivate to this day. This album is a glittering selection of operatic favorites, showcasing her unique voice and haunting portrayal of tragic heroines.Side A is taken from studio recordings and Side B is taken from live recordings.
This LP will be released as a 140g red color analog LP in a limited quantity. *The sound source is different from that of the simultaneously released analog LP "Assoluta Maria Callas.
