As this recital amply demonstrates, Maria Callas encompassed an extraordinary
range of roles. She is as convincing in the pinpoint coloratura of Lakmé’s 'Bell
Song' (‘Her chromatic scale is beautifully done and she sails up to the region
known as in alt with the greatest ease,’ said Gramophone) as in the sweeping,
richly-coloured lines of Maddalena’s 'La mamma morta' from Andrea Chénier,
famously and movingly featured on the soundtrack of the 1993 Hollywood film
Philadelphia. 'There is great tenderness and simplicity, deep emotion, and
the most lovely moulding of the vocal phrases,' wrote Gramophone, 'Madame
Callas's characterizations…are nothing less than superb, and altogether there is
some of her finest singing yet recorded.'
