Vinyl LP pressing. It is 40 years since Maria Callas died (16th September 1977), but she lives on as the epitome of the operatic diva. She has never lost her place among the top-selling classical artists. Warner Classics re-releases one of Maria Callas’ legendary studio recitals on vinyl, using state of the art remastering done in 2014.

Callas sang all of them on stage apart from Ernani, and Lady MacBeth proved a triumph for her when she opened La Scala’s season in December 1952.
