RAI Chorus and Orchestra Turin
Violetta, the most complex and fully-rounded of Verdiís heroines, was one of the roles that defined Maria Callas as an artist. She performed it more than 60 times between 1951 and 1958, most famously in Luchino Viscontiís production at La Scala in 1955/56.
It is often said that the role demands a different kind of voice for each act, and, when she made this recording for the Cetra label in 1953, Callas offered youthful, ringing power complemented by coloratura prowess and the capacity for great delicacy.
More than 60 years on, her characterisation, in its subtlety and truth, still sets the standard for La traviata.
