Callas's second studio recording of La Gioconda was made in 1959, six years after her last stage performances of the role, which in 1947 has been the vehicle for her Italian debut (at the Arena di Verona).The recording came at a turning point in Callas's life - when her relationship with Aristotle Onassis led to her separation from her husband, Giovanni Battista Meneghini. Writing in Gramophone in 1960, Philip Hope-Wallace said: 'I simply cannot imagine anyone getting more out of the role than she does this time…the total effect is riveting.' Joining Callas were two young Italian singers destined for great careers: the mezzo-soprano Fiorenza Cossotto as her rival, Laura, and, as the sinister Barnaba, baritone Piero Cappuccilli.

The role of the betrayed and finally murderous Medea became closely associated with Maria Callas. In 1969, several years after her final operatic performance, she even starred as Jason’s spurned wife – as an actress, not as a singer – in a film directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. She first appeared in Cherubini’s opera in 1953 in Florence, with Vittorio Gui conducting, and later that year collaborated with Leonard Bernstein in a staging at La Scala; in 1962, the role brought her final appearances at Milan’s great opera house.

Opera singers come and go, but just a few – the legends – live on. And Maria Callas was the greatest legend of them all, though not just for the wonder of her voice. She changed the way people thought about opera, but she also became famous as the glamorous celebrity who fell in love with Aristotle Onassis, leaving her elderly husband to live with him on his yacht Christina and enjoy the high life with the international jet set.

This is a most unusual 'Parsifal,' a live Rome performance, abridged and sung in Italian, originally broadcast in September of 1950. As dark a horse as it may appear to be, several factors make it compelling listening. One is the leadership of Vittorio Gui, an excellent opera conductor now best remembered for several fine Mozart recordings he made for EMI. While the music does seem to have a somewhat Latinate thrust, it works on its own terms, reminding one that despite the aura of spirituality and philosophy that hangs over the proceedings, this is still drama. Then there is the matter of the singers, with the great Russian bass Boris Christoff, firm and profound as Gurnemanz and soprano Maria Callas, here in her early prime, strong, sharp Read more and electrifying, as Kundry, each adding their spectacular (though not typically "Wagnerian") gifts to the mix. It's quite a stew.
