Format: Audio CD
This is a great set, and a nice anniversary issue to coincide with the 75th birthday of the great Spanish soprano, a truly grand diva and unique voice, maybe the last example of a breed of singers directly connected with the Grand Tradition and a vocal art -of purity of tone, breath control, combination of power and agility, musicianship and refined artistry, not to mention breathtaking pianissimi- that seems to be quite forgotten by today's big media opera stars. Sony has issued in their original jackets, like beautiful mini LPs, most of her RCA recordings and some of her Spanish Columbia recordings released between 1965, year of her first LP for the American company (Presenting Montserrat Caballé), and 1972. Including Montserrat Caballé Sings Zarzuela, Songs of Enrique Granados, Strauss Lieder Recital, Verdi rarities, Rossini rarities, Zarzuela Love Duets (with husband Bernabé Martí), Donizetti rarities, Great Operatic Heroines, Caballé & Verret Duets, and two complete operas, Norma and Salome. Missing are, among others, the complete recordings of Lucrezia Borgia and Traviata. Anyway, a wonderful box-set at a bargain price and, though I had already all these recordings in previous CD incarnations, I secured my copy as soon as I knew of it. And so should you, before it is too late, being a limited edition. Now, if Sony gave the same treatment to the 8 LPs recorded for the Spanish Vergara and Columbia labels not included here (starting with a superb 1963 Toldrá recital, her very first LP), I would be eternally grateful. Almost all of them were released in compilations by RCA France to celebrate Caballé's 70th birthday. Sony owns now the rights and it would be a wonderful sequel to this set.Read more ›

I have a confession to make: I discovered Montserrat Caballe through Freddie Mercury! Despite being a classical music lover since my days as a chorister several generations ago I have tried hard to enjoy opera but with the exception of live perfromances and one or two Mozart, Puccini, Verdi & Wagner operas when I'm in the right mood I have resolutely failed. However, over Christmas I enjoyed watching a documentary about Freddie Mercury and purchased 'Barcelona - Special Edition' from Amazon afterwards. I must have played it 20 times within a week of it arriving, so captivated was I by both voices. I wanted more so entered 'Montserrat Caballe' in the Amazon search bar and came up with this box set. I hesitated a day or two thinking that the sound quality would be poor and that I wouldn't enjoy the eclectic selection of music; I've been dissapointed before by large box sets of cardboard-clad re-issues where I've not got beynd the first few discs. How wrong I was. That voice...... it transcends everything and makes the tears roll down your cheeks. The first disc alone is well worth £19.95 and the sound quality is fabulous, belying the age of the recordings. You don't have to be an opera-lover to love this music, simply a human being. Grab it while you can - at £1.33 per disc of pure musical gold it's a genuine bargain!

The collection itself is absolutely superb. I have most of the albums on vinyl but obviously it is far easier to play a cd rather than a disc.
The packaging could have been better. It did arrive slightly damaged.
