Exquisite Jewel On 180g Vinyl LP!

Maria Callas sings great arias from French operas.

Callas' recordings of French music are rare, exquisite jewels indeed. Singing the French version of Gluck's "Alceste", a role she had sung brilliantly in Italian, she dazzles with a dignified elegance and brilliant style for Gluck as well as crystal clear diction and perfect phrasing. Her "Carmen" breathes fire and is maybe the most dangerously sexy gypsy you'll ever hear. Saint-Saëns evil seductress "Dalilah" is sung with a totally different voice. Silken, husky and erotic, it is almost unbearable not to fall prey to this siren. Her Mignon is deliciously beautiful. But the highlight is her "Pleurez mes yeux". Callas finds colours and incredibly haunting pathos here.
