5.0 out of 5 stars A Better Norma January 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Much has been written about this recording, good and bad. I have had the earlier EMI recording of Norma with Callas for quite some time. I have always struggled to appreciate the "beauty" of the earlier set. Stignani was well past her prime when it was recorded. Anyone who has been to La Scala appreciates the the "live" sound that the acoustics of the theatre provide, even when attendance is at house capacity. That vibrant sound never made it to the first set, recorded in mono in the mid 1950's. At that time, acoustical engineering was still transposing recording techniques from the days of the 78's to the LP era, and acoustics and "sound" were just not very refined. By the time the second Callas "Norma" was recorded (@1960), audio engineering techniques had come a very long way and in a very short time; stereo was here to stay. This is a major factor in contrasting these two recordings. The stereo version sounds "full" and really picks up the vibrancy of the La Scala theatre; the mono original version is acoustically dead as though the engineers did not understand, or care about, the resulting "dead" sound picked up during the sessions. In my opinion, this is a major advancement in being able to hear the total Callas voice. Unfortunately, she recorded very few stereo sets ( we do have her "Carmen" and a few French recitals).In stereo, her voice is rich, softer and much more pleasant to listen to. I disagree with some others that her voice was showing some serious decline in this second recording. Only modest voice changes are heard and to label them as "declines" is not accurate. I only recently purchased this second reading of "Norma" by Callas, just to compare it with the original set. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars not a big fan of Callas, but impressed April 7, 2014
By jose
Format:Audio CD
the sound is an amazing 60's stereo recording with, Corelli & Ludwig as co-stars, I enjoyed every part of it, her voice for this particular work, is just the right one, Corelli & Ludwig are amazing too. only little problem, Pollione's cabaletta is not repeated & Corelli makes a great presence with his iron voice in this recording, it would had been ideal if he sung those 3 extra minutes. otherwise very complete. very pleased with this my 4th Norma after both Sutherland's & Sills

Format:Audio CD
Callas' second EMI NORMA (1960) has many admirers. I am frustrated that her interpretation has deepened but she is betrayed by a voice too damaged by this point. One must listen beyond th voice for the great music-making. Still, I'd prefer the first EMI set or better still, the live RAI (June 1955) version, best on MYTO or the Scala performance (December 1955)--only on Divina.

The Warner reissues are taken from the inferior 1997-2005 remasterings rather than the far superior earlier 1986-88 transfers--which are usually misleadingly depicted on the Warner covers. This NORMA is an exception: they actually improved it a bit in 1997, and Warner's cover picture actually shows the LP cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great interpretation of Maria Callas February 27, 2014
By Chen Lv
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Callas's voice sounds good, she could exactly interpret the character's inner world, that was her most unique side. CD is stereo recording with lyrics.
