Chorus and Orchestra of La Scala, Milan
Among the many highlights of Callas’ profoundly satisfying performance is her cadenza for 'Ah non giunge' in which she executes a remarkable diminuendo on a stratospheric E-flat, a feat unrivalled in the history of the gramophone.
This is by any standards a classic recording.
Recorded in 1957.
“Callas does not appear to ever strain for a note. Her voice is always agile and flexible, with an upper register that is forceful but transparent. Callas always retains her lyric sweetness. She sings with nearly perfect evenness through passages of florid ornamentation.” - Audiophile Audition on this recording
