Editorial Reviews

The reputation of this Barcelona-born soprano soared after a performer's illness gave her the part of Mimi in La Boheme in 1956. Here are 4 CDs of her most prized EMI recordings: selections from the aforementioned opera and from Les Huguenots; Macbeth; Otello; Aida; Manon Lescaut; Tosca; Madama Butterfly; Turandot , and Don Carlo (several of which feature Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras) plus the treasured Spanish songs that she sang so beautifully!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This excellent boxed set has four CDs, all studio recordings from the 1970s.
All have orchestral accompaniment except for the Spanish songs, one by Turina,
and five by Montsalvatge. These songs have piano accompaniment.

Disc 1 starts with the bel canto period and includes arias by Rossini, Bellini
and Donizetti. My favorite here is the French "Sombre foret" from Guillaume Tell
by Rossini. Mme Caballe's husband Bernabe Marti sings on this disc as well as
Alfredo Kraus and others.

Mr. Marti is also singing with his wife on disc 2 in Les Huguenots. The rest of
disc 2 has Verdi arias from Giovanna d'Arco, Macbeth, Un ballo in Maschera,
La Forza del Distino and Don Carlo. The Don Carlo has Placido Domingo,
Sherrill Milnes and Ruggero Raimondo singing with Mme Caballe.

Disc 3 starts with arias from Verdi's Aida. The first two have only Mme
Caballe, the third adds Placido Domingo and in the fourth Fiorenza Cossotto
also sings. The last Verdi opera is Otello where Elizabeth Bainbridge sings
with Mme Caballe. The Boito aria "L'altra Notte" is one of my favorites and
it is hauntingly sung. Then the Puccini operas begin with arias from Manon
Lescaut and La Boheme. Placido sings a duet from Manon Lescaut.

Disc four continues with Puccini arias from Tosca, Madama Butterfly, Turandot
(with Joseph Carreras), Gianni Schicchi and La Rondine. It finishes with 23
minutes of Cavalleria rusticana (with Carerras, Astrid Varnay and Julia Hamari)
Vicino a te from Andrea Chenier (Mr. Marti singing again with his wife) and the
Spanish songs mentioned before.

These DCs have some of the top orchestras and conductors. I can't think of a
negative thing to say about them.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Leeber Cohen on July 29, 2013
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Among my many regrets are that I only saw Caballe in the opera house twice. Her floated high soft notes were world famous. I love her recordings of Verdi's Don Carlo with Domingo, Aida with Domingo, and Rossini's William Tell with Gedda. I also really enjoy her recording of Salome. I had not been listening to much opera for several years and I decided to give this box a try. When she sings at soft and moderate volumes the voice is incredibly beautiful. The Verdi Forza excerpt is incredible. The voice could be a little ugly with loud high notes. There fortunately are very few of those notes in this box. You may very well want to get the complete recordings of the above mentioned operas. By the way I have been listening to a lot of opera since I listened to this box.

My appreciation for opera is new, although I've been listening to classical music for about fifty years. So I've been picking up some 'opera highlight' cds to get my feet wet. This set is a wonderful bargain. The arias are exquisitely beautiful and Caballe's voice is a gorgeous instrument. Highly recommended.

I've often wondered about the answer to the age old question posed by the Persian poet: What can we possibly offer the wine merchant for his drink if it's as good as we poets make it out to be?

The answer must be singing of such magnificence.

If you haven't much by Caballe this offering should give you a convincing and wondrous introduction in depth to one of last century's supreme operatic sopranos. Frankly, this quality of singing is beyond criticism.

Most of this cd set is superb and she at her very best - that is to say terrific but in some of the repertoire she is not as good as some other singers
