THE BEST SOUNDING VERSION OF THIS PERFORMANCE YET!
L. Mitnick | Chicago, Illinois United States | 11/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I'm not going to bother reviewing this performance, since it is the same one that is presented on the EMI Callas Edition noted on these pages, as well as
the considerably less expensive Opera d'Oro set (also seen on these pages as well). What IS important here is the sound, which is far superior to the EMI, and perhaps even better than the Opera d'Oro set, which I reviewed some time ago. I feel that Myto has taken much more effort in securing their masters of Callas performances than EMI has. EMI probably rightfully feels that anything with the immortal diva's name on it will sell, which it will.
But here we can hear the performance in the best sound thus far. I don't see how it can get better than this. If you have the EMI version, get rid of it and buy this one. If you love Callas as much as I do, you won't regret it."
