Long out of print, this title has been repressed and is once again available!

This is Callas' most famous single recital record. It contains three long scenes, each of which depicts an operatic heroine who has descended to a state of madness. No subject matter could have given the legendary soprano more scope to show the range of her dramatic and interpretative skill, and Callas sings with extraordinary intensity and sense of tragedy. The recordings were made in the space of just two days in September 1958. The Philharmonia Orchestra play with great flair and imagination under one of Callas' favorite conductors, and these great performances were perfectly captured by EMI in vintage stereo sound. Testament's new transfer conveys the atmosphere and range of the original recordings to perfection.
