Hi-Res Booklets Distinctions Diapason d'or de l'année - Diapason d'or - Choc Classica de l'année - 5 Sterne Fono Forum Klassik
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)

Distinctions Diapason d'or
Maria Callas: Live in Amsterdam 1959 is the first EMI packaging of a concert that has been available in many other forms, including a semi-legit release on the Italian label Verona. Callas is in particularly fine form here, singing at the 1959 Holland Festival with the help of the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam under Nicola Rescigno. The recording, made by Radio Nederland, is not "hi-fi" and a little gritty, but it isn't bad; you get used to it and it is far better than average for live concerts of Callas. This is part of the recent series of Callas re-issues where EMI Classics is attempting to "beat the boots" through releasing its own high quality versions of live Maria Callas material. Maria Callas: Live in Amsterdam 1959 is one of the better concerts to be found among such recordings and should prove satisfying to most anyone who would care to seek it out -- the booklet contains some marvelous photographs of Callas taken during her time in Amsterdam.
