This is one of the most justly revered operatic recordings ever made -- a dramatic and musical gold standard for Tosca despite its advancing age and monophonic sound. It was the last major recording project for Victor de Sabata, one of opera's greatest, yet least often recorded conductors. He brought a distinctive rhythmic urgency to this performance that you can hear from the very first bars, and he wove the vocal and orchestral textures together so organically that they still sound vivid today. He deserves a lot of the credit for making this one of the rare studio recordings that captures the energy and dramatic tension of a live performance. Maria Callas is at the top of her game, and still very much in her vocal prime. Her dramatic approach to Tosca is arguably even better captured in the live recordings from Covent Garden a decade later, but at that point her voice had lost some of its bloom; depending on your tastes, this may be the better example of her doing the role. Tito Gobbi owned the role of Scarpia, and considered it his finest characterization. Although he and Callas wouldn't perform the opera together on-stage for another 10 years, the chemistry and tension they brought to those later live performances are already in evidence here, as if they have done these roles together many times. The excitement of the second act is electric. And Giuseppe di Stefano still sounds youthful and fresh, not yet vocally worn from years of heavy singing. He makes the perfect partner for Callas, bringing an optimistic passion to the opening scene that sets off her more complicated persona. His final "E lucevan le stelle" is truly heartbreaking.

Maria Callas "dal vivo"

D’une portée vertigineuse, le legs discographique de Maria Callas est d’autant plus stupéfiant que ses gravures d’opéras en studio se firent en à peine une décennie : pas moins de vingt-quatre intégrales enregistrées entre 1952 et 1960 (mais la plupart dans les années 1953–1957), complétées à Paris, où elle venait de s’installer, de Carmen (1964) et d’une seconde Tosca (1965) — aux intégrales répondant de célèbres disques récitals. L’ensemble a fait l’objet en 2014, au terme d’une remasterisation exemplaire d’après les bandes mères, d’un nouveau et somptueux coffret Warner Classics. Nous reproduisons ici, avec l'aimable autorisation de Warner Music le texte introductif de Michel Roubinet qui figure dans le livret du coffret Maria Callas Live.

Compositrices, ces méconnues

De Sappho de Mytilène à Kaija Saariaho en passant par Clara Schumann, plusieurs femmes ont su déjouer les codes machistes du milieu pour passer à la composition. Si le paysage de la musique classique a largement été dominé par les hommes ces derniers siècles, les œuvres de leurs consœurs, pionnières ou contemporaines, sont tout aussi passionnantes. Défense et illustration de la composition au féminin en onze portraits musicaux.

La grande aventure du Fidelio de Beethoven

Basé sur un fait divers survenu en France pendant la Terreur révolutionnaire (l’histoire d’une jeune femme intrépide se déguisant en homme pour tenter de sauver son mari emprisonné au fond d’un cachot), l’unique opéra de Beethoven a connu une destinée mouvementée, remanié de part et d’autre au fil des années. Nouvelle preuve du génie musical du compositeur allemand, “Fidelio” lui a aussi permis de mettre en musique un livret répondant à ses opinions politiques.
