 Most Excellent Recording September 13, 2012 By Carl P Nordmark (Northfield, NH) See All My Reviews "As always, Callas sings in all her beauty and majestry, with stunning accompaniment. She sings a series of arias that she did not sing in her previous recordings.
I would definitely recommend this for purchase. "
