Puccini: La bohème CD (Antonio Votto)

Callas Remastered honours the legendary Maria Callas with new transfers of all her studio recordings, made at Abbey Road Studios and using 24-bit 96kHz remastering. For this release, the engineers have returned to the original studio master tapes, bringing new clarity and brilliance to a classic interpretation: 'Callas is quite magnifcent...she makes you hear the music for the first time.' (Gramophone)

Callas never sang the role of Mimì on stage, but this did not prevent her recorded interpretation from being, as described by Philip Hope-Wallace in Gramophone, ‘brilliantly realised … This Mimì comes alive and later haunts you in the most extraordinary way … one of the most moving I have ever heard.’ Giuseppe di Stefano is an ardent Rodolfo and the young Anna Moffo makes a delectable Musetta.
