The Very Best of Maria Callas CD


Typical review:
There has never, ever been a singer, whether popular or classical, who can even begin to approach the profound depths of Callas' musical consciousness and genius...

She said many times "It is not enough to have a beautiful voice. First, you must learn the music exactly as written, note for note. Then you must take the music and your voice and set to work on every phrase as if a new voice was required for each role".
