Puccini: Turandot (2-CD) – Maria Callas

Composer: Giacomo Puccini
Artists: Maria Callas, Eugenio Fernandi, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Giuseppe Nessi, Nicola Zaccaria, Mario Borriello, Renato Ercolani, Piero di Palma, Coro e Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala
Conductor: Tullio Serafin
Number of Discs: 2
Label: Warner Classics
CD Release Date: August 14, 2014

Callas Remastered honors the legendary Maria Callas with new transfers of all her studio recordings. For this release, engineers returned to the original 1957 master tapes, bringing new clarity and brilliance to a classic interpretation.

Callas sang the role of Turandot 24 times onstage in the late 1940s. She brings unusual subtlety to Puccini’s icy princess, while Elisabeth Schwarzkopf – more readily identified with Fiordiligi and the Marschallin – is surprise casting as the self-sacrificing Liù.

“Callas sings with wonderful concern for detail…. Turandot is one of her greatest roles.” (Gramophone)

History

Turandot

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1926.

Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi.

Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere.
