Callas first sang at Milan’s legendary La Scala for the opening of the 1951–1952 season (in Verdi’s I vespri siciliani) and she became closely identified with the theatre, notably in productions directed by Luchino Visconti and his protégé Franco Zeffirelli. Spontini’s La vestale was staged for her there in 1954, Bellini’s La sonnambula in 1955, and her final La Scala performances came in 1962 with Cherubini’s Medea. ‘This wonderful record gives us … Callas at her most spell-binding and enthralling,’ wrote Gramophone. ‘Callas at La Scala … shows the diva at her most exciting and most beautiful.’

Released in UK on Gundula Janowitz’s 80th birthday. 2017 is also the 40th anniversary of Maria Callas’ death. Brigitte Fassbaender said: ‘Gundula Janowitz possesses one of those voices where you have only to hear a couple of notes and you immediately know who it is. Her elegant timbre and unmistakably instrumental way of forming the phrases is unique.’ Few singers have voices that approach the purity of Janowitz’s: with its very fast vibrato and ‘white’ production, the focused sound can soar, swoop and dip with astonishing ease and control, the vocal line becoming almost liquefied into a seemingly endless melisma.

Il 16 settembre 1977 Maria Callas moriva a Parigi per un collasso cardiocircolatorio.

A trent'anni esatti dalla sua morte ecco il primo romanzo sulla sua avventurosa e travagliata esistenza firmato da Alfonso Signorini, nelle inedite vesti di appassionato melomane e documentato biografo. …

The New Sound of Maria Callas Opera singers come and go, but just a few – the legends – live on. And Maria Callas was the great­est legend of them all, though not just for the wonder of her voice. She changed the way people thought about opera, but she also became famous as the glamorous celebrity who fell in love with Aristotle Onassis, leaving her elderly husband to live with him on his yacht Christina and enjoy the high life with the international jet set.

The tracks on this album were recorded over a period of no less than 16 years. The earliest, the two versions of Donna Anna's 'Non mi dir', date from 1953, and were intended to test microphone placings before Callas made her first commercial recording for EMI: Lucia di Lammermoor. The latest, the Verdi arias recorded with Nicola Rescigno in 1964-1965 and 1969, were never approved for release by the soprano. When Callas Rarities was first released in 1993, Gramophone wrote: 'Each item, each phrase almost, has something to be said about it: the whole collection makes essential listening'.

This third Verdi collection was the last recital that Callas recorded, over an extended period between 1964 and 1969. Arias from operas in her stage repertoire – Aida, Un ballo in maschera, I vespri siciliani and Il trovatore – were complemented by numbers from more rarely heard works from Verdi’s ‘galley years’: When five of the tracks from this recital were originally released as Callas by Request, Gramophone admired the way: ‘Callas revealed her matchless command of line, verbal declamation and musical insight’.
