Angela Gheorghiu - Homage to Maria Callas


Homage to Maria Callas is a collection of beloved French and Italian operatic masterpieces performed by Angela, the defining diva of this century. The album is inspired by the career and recordings of Maria Callas, the greatest diva of the last century. The arias are shared favourites of both Callas and Gheorghiu, and Angela’s new recording demonstrates her extraordinary vocal and emotional range.

'Callas was original in everything she did; she was a phenomenon.' Angela Gheorghiu
