Description

Callas Remastered honours the legendary Maria Callas with new transfers of all her studio recordings, made at Abbey Road Studios and using 24-bit 96kHz remastering. For this release, the engineers have returned to the original studio master tapes, bringing new clarity and brilliance to a classic interpretation: 'One of the greatest studio recordings: Callas is incomparable as Tosca'.

 

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’ personal manifesto.
