Product Description

Aïda is the culmination of Italian grand opera. It was first performed on 24th December 1871 at the Khedivial Opera House, Cairo. With just four main characters, the drama remains tightly focused, for all the grandeur of the spectacle. And the music! This is Verdi the melodist at his most lyrical, revealing his profound understanding of how to write for the human voice. Verdi's mastery of the orchestra, too, is utterly complete. The choruses are among the most thrilling he ever composed. Time and again, his masterly orchestral writing gives us added insight into the state of mind of the character or illuminates the dramatic situation. Aïda has inspired successive generations of singers, producers and conductors to give of their best.

I heard and fell in love with Maria Callas's voice many years ago, and still have the vinyl version from about 1953. So it was a delight to hear it again as a CD version.

For a 1955 recording this is astonishing. No it is not in stereo, but there is still plenty of presence and the quality of the soli comes through.
