5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SAMPLE OF THE DIVA 16 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is a good set to sample the incomparable voice of Montserrat Caballé, her glorious sound (from delicately spun pianissimi to thrilling full-voiced dramatic outbursts) and her unique artistry. From Violetta and Norma to Salome and Isolde. The Libera me from Verdi's Requiem is a miracle and hasn't been released on CD outside Japan. The arias from Lucrezia Borgia, La Bohème and Il Pirata won't be easily surpassed. In fact every track here is a treasure, preserving legenday performances, singing for the ages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully will grow on me 7 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not soooo familiar with classical/opera so this is taking me a while to get to know and love.

Maybe it's because it just can't compare (for me) with "Presenting Montserrat Caballe" which is just fantastic-play it all the time!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of diva Caballe's best singing 25 Dec 2005
By Viva Caballe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great collection of Caballe's eternal art. All the songs here have been remastered and sound wonderful. The very best of, contains a nice selection of Caballe's greatest Verdi singing. Her rendition, heard here, of una macchia e qui tutt'ora (macbeth) is the best one in recorded history. She sings it with such beauty, feeling, and power, not to mention the most ethereal pianissimo high D flat to ever caress the ear. All of the arias on this disc amply demonstrates her mastery of bel canto, and italian opera for that matter. In signore, ascolta from turandot, another memorable performance from Caballe, she sculpts this aria beautifully like a master craftsman, ending this piece with a ultra high pianissimo b flat, which she holds out all the way to the final bars of the music, for an astonishing 15 seconds. One of the most beautiful notes to ever float from the human throat. Other notable mentions would be her pace pace mio dio, her ave maria from Othello, col sorriso d'innocenza from il pirata, as well as an entire Spanish recital (recorded in 1979, in good voice) are all include here; and much more besides. There is also a nice picture of a young, beautiful, and thinner Montserrat Caballe on the cover. The CD booklet includes extensive linear notes and five rare photos of this divine soprano, who has both a heart and voice of pure gold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cut-and-Paste Caballe 17 May 2003
By Daniel Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This two-disc recital draws heavily upon two Caballe recital discs (a Bellini/Verdi recital, and a recital of Puccini arias), with some extra material thrown in. At the end of disc one, there are also some Spanish songs thrown in, a good choice, since Caballe sang these songs extensively in her many recitals.
For Caballe fans that already own the backlist of her recitals, there is not enough here to entice you to buy this new recital, unless you like the unique combination of arias. Tracks 1-5 on disc one are wonderful interpretations by Caballe of Verdian arias. I especially like the one from Macbeth- perfectly executed, with the pianissimi in all the right places. Equally as thrilling is her Tu Che Le Vanita, a dramatic, long aria that shows off the interpretive power she was capable of, when she wasn't in a lazy mood. As for the Ave Maria, I find it curious that they chose to cut the preceding Willow Song. In my mind, you can have a Willow Song on a soprano's recital disc without the Ave Maria, but it seems inappropriate for the reverse to be the case. Personally, I don't think that Caballe has anything on Mirella Freni, who is perhaps the most perfect Desdemona of her era.
I must admit to not having heard Caballe's interpretations of L'Altra Notte and Voi Lo Sapete. To imagine Caballe singing Santuzza really seems like a stretch to me. My favorite Santuzzas are Callas, Bumbry, and Verrett (in that order). Of course, Caballe did sing a lot of roles, and it isn't impossible that she could do justice to the aria, but I just can't imagine it, try as I might. A final selection worth mentioning is the aria from William Tell, from a supreme bel canto recording of Rossini's masterpiece.
Tracks 1-11 on the second disc are culled from her famous Puccini Arias recording, with the exception of In Questa Reggia from Turandot (a role that she would sing very late in her career, as opposed to the more familiar and suitable-for-her-voice role of Liu). What is notable is what didn't make the cut. Listeners will be deprived of her heart-wrenching, powerful interpretation of Sola, Perduta, Abbandonata, with its sinister clarinet obligato. They will also miss out on an enchanting aria from Puccini's little known and rarely staged Le Villi. This is a shame, since the original Puccini Aria disc is currently out of circulation.
The rest of disc two focuses on Bellini, in the form of I Puritani and Il Pirata. Listeners will be treated to both the polacca and the mad scene from Bellini' final opera. Caballe, of course, cannot hold a candle to Joan Sutherland, who was a true coloratura soprano (Caballe was more lyrical), but she isn't bad, either, as Elvira. The Bellini role that would garner her more acclaim was Imogene from Il Pirata. This two-disc recital draws to a close with her divine reading of Imogene's mad scene. This is the stuff of operatic legend.
All in all, minor quibbles aside, this is a great introduction to those not familiar with Caballe's grand art.

Caballe had probably the most incredible voice of the 20th Century and this CD shows you why she is considered by many to have had such an incredible voice. It is wonderful.
