    Verdi: La Traviata (1953 - Studio Recording)

    Violetta, the most complex and fully-rounded of Verdi's heroines, was one of the roles that defined Maria Callas as an artist. She performed it more than 60 times between 1951 and 1958, most famously in Luchino Visconti's production at La Scala in 1955/56. It is often said that the role demands a different kind of voice for each act, and, when she made this recording for the Cetra label in 1953, Callas offered youthful, ringing power complemented by coloratura prowess and the capacity for great delicacy.More than 60 years on, her characterization, in its subtlety and truth, still sets the standard for La Traviata.

    Callas Portrays Verdi Heroines (Studio Recital)

    Coinciding with the new Callas Live Remastered Edition, the cataloger's 2017 priority, Warner Classics re-releases two of Maria Callas' legendary studio recitals on vinyl, using the state of the art remastering done in 2014.


    This recital brings together three operas from the earlier years of Verdi's career (Nabucco, Ernani and Macbeth) and one of his greatest mature masterpieces (Don Carlo). 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.


    Gramophone greeted this recital by saying: Mme Callas has seldom had such a field day and her dramatic instinct is well-nigh perfect in interpreting these wonderful pages, each characterized convincingly - and differently.

    1. Macbeth, Act 1: Nel dì della vittoria ....Vienil t'affretta (Lady Macbeth, Chorus)
    2. Macbeth, Act 2: La luce langue (Lady Macbeth)
    3. Macbeth, Act 4: Una macchia è qui tuttora (Lady Macbeth, Doctor, Woman)
    4. Nabucco, Act 2: Ben io t'invenni ... Anch'io dischiuso un giorno (Abigaille)
    5. Ernani, Act 1: Surta è la notte .... Ernani! Ernani, involami (Elvira)
    6. Don Carlo, Act 5: Tu che le vanità (Élisabeth)

    Callas at La Scala (Studio Recital)

    Coinciding with the new Callas Live Remastered Edition, the catalog's 2017 priority, Warner Classics re-releases two of Maria Callas' legendary studio recitals on vinyl, using the state of the art remastering done in 2014.


    Callas first sang at Milan's legendary La Scala for the opening of the 1951-52 season (in Verdi's I vespri siciliani) and she became closely identified with the theater, notably in productions directed by Luchino Visconti and his protÉgÉ Franco Zeffirelli. Spontini's La vestale was staged for her there in 1954, Bellini's La sonnambula in 1955, and her final La Scala performances came in 1962 with Cherubini's Medea.


    Callas at her most spell-binding and enthralling, wrote Gramophone, Callas at La Scala ( ) shows the diva at her most exciting and most beautiful.

    1. La sonnambula, Act 1: Compagne, temiri amici ....Come per me sereno
    2. La sonnambula, Act 3: Oh, se una volta sola ....Ah! non credea mirarti
    3. Medea, Act 1: Dei tuoi figli la madre from Medea
    4. La Vestale, Act 2: Tu che invoco con orrore
    5. La Vestale, Act 2: O nome tutelar
    6. La Vestale, Act 3: Caro oggetto

    Mad Scenes

    A few months after the release of the new Callas Live Remastered Edition, Warner Classics continue to release her legendary studio recitals on vinyl, using the state of the art remastering done in 2014. Mad Scenes (1958)Maria Callas did not make complete studio recordings of Donizetti's Anna Bolena and Bellini's Il pirata (these two operas are both available in the new Callas Live Edition), though, as the queen of La Scala, she enjoyed triumphs in both roles in 1957-1958. The vocally and dramatically demanding final scenes of both operas feature in this recital with OphÉlie's mad scene from Ambroise Thomas's Hamlet, another coloratura extravaganza. When this recital first appeared in 1959, Gramophone wrote: 'This is a most remarkable record, not only for its material but for its astonishing vividness and dramatic poetry It has been a thing of much wonder for me.'
    1. Anna Bolena, Act 2: Piangete voi?...Al dolce guidami castel natio (Anna Bolena, Smeton, Lord Percy)

    Operatic arias (Lyric & coloratura)

    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' fromAndrea 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 characteristics are nothing less than superb, and altogether there is some of her finest singing yet recorded.'

    Navigator

    Navigator is the third album by Her Name is Calla and their first through Function Records. It follows on from their critically acclaimed album The Quiet Lamb. Written over the course of the last three tumultuous years as life, death, distance, divorce and everything else in between tried its best to pull the band apart. It retains the bands own personal sound of soaring strings, and crescendos with footing equally in rock, electronica and folk.. It is a story of losing love, life, faith and identity, and the great depression that brings. More importantly, it is about finding the way back home again.

    Bettye Lavette-born Betty Jo Haskins, from Detroit, Michigan-is easily one of the most
    important yet sometimes overlooked soul singer/songwriter of all time. She made her first
    record at the age of 16 in 1962 when she was signed by local Detroit record producer Johnnie
    Mae Matthews and recorded the single "My Man-He's A Lovin' Man," which became a Top
    Ten R&B hit after Atlantic Records bought distribution rights. Its success led to a tour with
    Clyde McPhatter, Ben E. King, Barbara Lynn and Otis Redding. She recorded the Wreich
    Holloway-written song, "Let Me Down Easy," on Calla Records in 1965 and became a chart
    hit (#48), leading to a brief stint with the James Brown Revue. After recording more singles
    for local Detroit labels, Lavette signed to Silver Fox in 1969 and recorded a handful of songs,
    including two Top 40 R&B Hits: "He Made A Woman Out Of Me" and "Do Your Duty," both
    produced by Lelan Rogers and featuring the Memphis studio musicians who later became
    known as the Dixie Flyers.


    In 1972, Bettye signed with Atlantic/Atco and was sent to the famed Muscle Shoals Sound
    Studios in Alabama to record a full-length album. Produced by Brad Shapiro and featuring
    the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the album was supposed to originally be titled as Child
    of the Seventies but Atco chose to shelve the project at the time. Years later, after Bettye
    played her own personal recordings of the sessions for French soul music collector, Gilles
    Petard, he chased down the master recordings at Atlantic Records where they were thought
    to have been destroyed in a fire. In 1999 after obtaining the masters, he licensed the material
    and released it on CD in 2000 as Souvenirs through his Art and Soul label (Rhino Handmade
    would later reissue Child of the Seventies on CD with previously unreleased 1973 tracks).
    The album helped to spark renewed interest in Lavette and in 2003, A Woman Like Me, was
    released and won the 2004 W.C Handy Award for "Comeback Blues Album of the Year."
    Lavette then signed to the Rosebud Agency and was brought to the attention of Andy Kaulkin
    at ANTI Records who signed her to a 3-album deal. The first project was produced by Joe
    Henry and featured an album of songs written entirely by women: I've Got My Own Hell To
    Raise was successful in helping to raise awareness of Bettye and was on many critics' Best of
    2005 lists. Since her release on ANTI, she has gone on to many accomplishments, including
    receiving a Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation in 2006, A Blues Music
    Award for Best Contemporary Female Blues Singer in 2008 and another Blues Music Award
    in 2016 for Soul Blues Female Artist of the Year.

    Anna Calvi

    This is the stunning debut of guitarist and vocalist Anna Calvi. Brian Eno has championed her as the most visionary female artist since Patti Smith, Nick Cave has just taken her and her band on tour in Europe with Grinderman and Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey's right hand studio man) has produced the album with her. Her playing is inspired by Django Rheinhart as much as Jimi Hendrix and her singing style is Nina Simone with a bit Maria Callas- her sound is a passionate and incredibly original mix.
