The EMI masters of Maria Callas were re-mastered for the purposes of CD and released as a physical product in 2014. We are happy to offer it now as a full digital product in supreme audio quality. More than 25 years’ worth of music has been collected here, and filter applications have been applied to cover up sound defects (and other distortions). The recordings were passed into the expert hands of sound engineers Allan Ramsey and Simon Gibson, both of Abbey Road, who have made the recordings, under the directions of the Warner Classics label, as close to the sound of the originals as possible.  The gain in terms of sound is undeniable, whether by removing harsh noise or treating distorted sounds, and the natural harmonics have not been altered. What’s more, this decision to remaster everything has resulted in the recovering of the entirety of Callas’s oeuvre – meaning that we need no longer fear the disastrous loss of copies… But who said greater definition and cleanliness of sound permitted a better perception of detail! If we discern the disc’s nuances more clearly, the dynamic adjustments, soundscapes, etc., then we discern a greater fidelity in terms of timbre. Certain defects are, importantly, still left in play. Above all, Callas’s voice sounds more dramatic, brighter, more present, and more beautiful in its phrasing; especially pleasing is that it has been revealed for the first time in all of its acidity, in all of its cracks. With the sound completely rejuvenated, recordings such as La Tosca, Madame Butterfly, Il Trovatore, the Barber of Seville, and others, are as irreplaceable as ever. (GG)

A century and a half of Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, collected in the twelve CDs of this album. From 1867 to 2017, the listener discovers an impressive amount of Danish composers and interpreters from the Danish music sphere. It all started with the founding fathers, Niels Gade and Johann Peter Emilius Hartmann, followed by their first emulators: world-famous Carl Nielsen of course, but also creators mostly renowned in Scandinavia such as Knut Riisager and Finn Høffdking. Then came the composers active after the Great War, or even the Second World War: Vagn Holmboe, Herman Koppel and Niels Bentzon, followed by composers who could more freely cross borders to receive an education, live, and work abroad – which means that they cemented a reputation in our societies as well: Per Nørgård, Hans Abrahamsen, Erik Højsgaard, Bent Sørensen. From the sixth CD, the trip takes the listener to the world of Danish interpreters, from the internationally well-known – among them Kim Borg, Endre Wolf, Michal Schønwand – to more locally renowned artists. But in no way does it imply they are bad, or even mediocre: this album is filled with amazing surprises! Not to mention that numerous recordings presented here had never been released before, while others remained unavailable for years. © SM/Qobuz
