5.0 out of 5 stars The best Callas "Traviata"
The Santa Fe listener has beaten me to it with his comprehensive and discriminating review on Amazon.com, so I will not render this review otiose by re-hashing his observations, as I pretty much agree with his judgement. (I will readily confess that I sometimes find him harsh and uncharitable in his pronouncements, but this one is right on the money.) This as close as we...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not full opera

5.0 out of 5 stars Virginia Zeani is the Definitive Violetta, 20 May 2011

This review is from: La Traviata (Audio CD)
The great Virginia Zeani was largely overlooked by the recording studios which is a tragic misfortune for those who admire great singing. The lack of studio recordings is a confusing puzzle when one takes into consideration the quality of her performance on this recording. Madame Zeani was one of this century's greatest singing actresses with a ravishly beautiful voice through which she weaved rich emotional colouring to create the definitive interpretation of Verdi's tragic heroine. Unlike Callas whose Traviata recordings were marred by vocal problems and Sutherland's with unclear diction, Zeani's singing is secure and her diction unmatched. The emotional journey of the title character from the beginning to the end of the opera has never been more convincingly interpreted than by Madame Zeani. Violetta was her signature role, one that she sang 648 times, and this recording is a great testament to her artistry.
