Info zu The New Sound of Maria Callas (Remastered)

Renaissance einer Stimme: Vor fast vierzig Jahren starb die legendäre Maria Callas, und noch heute wächst ihre weltweite Fangemeinde. Immer wieder erleben ihre Aufnahmen, die zum bedeutendsten Schatz der Plattengeschichte gehören, Neuauflagen. Doch erst 2014 erreichte das Team der Abbey Road Studios mit modernster Software einen Durchbruch der Remastering-Technik.

Das Projekt Callas Remastered präsentierte das Erbe der Diva der Jahre 1949-69 völlig neu. Das Album The New Sound of Maria Callas vereint nun Höhepunkte aus Operngesamtaufnahmen und Recitals der Jahre 1953-64 auf 3 CDs. Am Anfang steht die berühmteste Callas-Arie überhaupt – Casta Diva aus Bellinis Norma und eröffnet ein Programm mit Szenen aus den großen Donizetti-, Rossini-, Verdi- und Puccini-Opern (mit den Dirigenten Herbert von Karajan, Tullio Serafin und Gabriele Santini).

Auch das französische Repertoire nimmt großen Raum ein: Es reicht von Meyerbeers Dinorah und Delibes' Lakme bis zu Massenets Werther und Manon, Gounods Faust und Bizets Carmen unter der Leitung des großen französischen Opernmaestro Georges Pretre. Niemals zuvor waren diese Einspielungen in einer solchen Klangfülle und -reinheit zu erleben – es sei denn, man hat sie mit eigenen Ohren in den Aufnahmestudios gehört, in denen sie damals erklangen ....

Maria Callas
was born to a Greek family in New York in 1923. Her vocal training took place in Athens, where her teacher was the coloratura soprano Elvira de Hidalgo, who had sung with Enrico Caruso and Feodor Chaliapin. After early performances in Greece, Callas’s international career was launched in 1947 when she performed the title role in Ponchielli’s La Gioconda at the Arena di Verona in Italy.

Her voice defied simple classification and her artistic range was extraordinary. In her early twenties she sang such heavy dramatic roles as Gioconda, Turandot, Brünnhilde and Isolde, but over the course of her career her most famous roles came to be: Bellini’s Norma and Amina (La sonnambula); Verdi’s Violetta (La traviata); Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor and Anna Bolena, Cherubini’s Medea and Puccini’s Tosca. Though her timbre was not always conventionally beautiful, Callas’s musicianship and phrasing were in a class of their own. She brought characters to vivid life with her skill in colouring her tone and making insightful use of the text.

She is credited with changing the history of opera: by placing a perhaps unprecedented emphasis on musical integrity and dramatic truth, and by transforming perceptions – and reviving the fortunes – of the bel canto repertoire, particularly Bellini and Donizetti.

The 1950s marked the height of Callas’s career. Its base lay in the opera houses of Italy, and she became the prima donna assoluta of Milan’s legendary La Scala – notably in the productions of Luchino Visconti – but her operatic appearances also encompassed London’s Royal Opera House, the New York Metropolitan Opera, Paris Opéra, the Vienna State Opera, and the opera houses of Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Lisbon, and, in the early 1950s, Mexico City, São Paolo and Rio de Janeiro.

From 1959, when she started a life-changing love affair with the Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, her performing career slowed down and her voice became more fragile. Her final stage performances came in 1965, when she was only 42.

There were many plans for a return to the stage – and for further complete recordings – but they never reached fruition, though in 1974 she gave a series of concerts in Europe, North America and Japan with the tenor Giuseppe di Stefano; he had partnered her frequently in the opera house and in the studio, not least in the 1953 La Scala Tosca under Victor de Sabata, considered a landmark in recording history. Callas died alone in her Paris apartment in September 1977.
