In this collection of releases in the Greatest Recording's of the Century series, we celebrate a series of historical opera/vocal recordings featuring Maria Callas, Tito Gobbi, Victoria de Los Ángeles, Enrico Caruso, Janet Baker, and more in some of their finest performances. Orchestral/Instrumental releases include such musical luminaries as Samson François, Adolph Busch, Sir John Barbirolli, and others. The series has a high-quality, distinctive design, with original LP sleeves and the ART logo reproduced on the front covers, and critical endorsements from Gramophone on the back inlays. The substantial booklets offer newly-ommissioned, authoritative essays in English, German & French. Sung texts and libretti with translations are included where applicable.
A Puccini Masterpiece

(5 out of 5 stars)
"These recordings of Il Trittico are absolutely top notch. Gobbi and De Los Angeles are wonderful in Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. De Los Angeles moves one to tears in the story of the nun who had a child that died. This is what I call Italian catholicism. It has much, much emotion attached, and that's what Victoria gives us. Gobbi's comedy in Gianni Schicchi is totally droll! The weakest link in the series in Il Tabarro, and it even manages to be scary and threatening! Overall, an amazing set of recordings, well worth being on the top shelf!"
