Pure Callas (CD)

$18.00

Although Maria Callas died, aged just 53, as long ago as September 1977, she remains an icon: as a supreme singing-actress; as a celebrity, and as a woman of great style and elegance. The epitome of the operatic diva, the American-born Greek soprano is recognised as a singer who defined, and even redefined opera in the 20th century and she has never lost her place among the world’s top-selling classical artists. This new single-disc collection will draw together highlights of the Maria Callas Remastered Edition, showcasing the previously unattainable quality of sound that can now be experienced in Callas’ most beloved arias, including Bizet's Habanera and Rossini's Una voce poco fa, Bellini's Casta Diva, and the aria that came to be identified as Callas' personal manifesto: Puccini's Vissi d'arte.
