Rossini's "Il Turco in Italia has never enjoyed the success of that composers vastly more celebrated "Barbiere di Siviglia", but there are some wonderful and fun things here nonetheless. The fairly uncomplicated story of a viperish Italian woman (married to an elderly and passive husband) who falls for a visiting Turk evolves into a vibrant and funny "opera buffa" in the very skilled hands of Maria Callas, Nicola Rossi-Lemeni (in the title role), and Mariano Stabile (as a poet in search for a subject who observes and relishes the goings-on). While, of course, Callas was not readily associated with comedy (her profound assumptions of Norma, Medea, Lucia, Traviata, and Lady Macbeth were already legendary at the time of this 1954 recording), she had scored a great success in this opera, both in Rome, and in a celebrated La Scala revival. Callas is in stupendous voice here ------ she executes roulades, cadenzas, and top D's with a security she rarely exhibited thereafter. Moreover, she creates a real comic character. As is essential for this type of music, her enunciation is pushed forward, with incredibly clear declamation of both consonants and open vowel sounds. Her entire assumption here reminds one of a celebrated Hamlet who, for a change of pace, undertakes to undertake Falstaff, and Callas brings it off with tremendous panache. But she is not the only star here. Nicola Rossi-Lemeni is a wonderfully pompous Turk, and his duet work with Callas is in the greatest tradition of the art of opera-buffo. Mariano Stabile, one of the greatest Italian buffo baritones of the century, contributes a showy and humourous portrait of the poet in search of a subject.Read more ›

I have been looking for this CD for a long time. I had an old set in tape format. When EMI first remastered this performance in CD, it was very expensive for me at the time. This performance goes in and out of production, I guess it does not sell well, which it is a shame, because these are superb performances from all the principals and supporting cast.

This recording is a joy to listen to. Who knew that all these singers known for their powerful dramatic performances in heavy hitters such as Bellini's "Norma" could be such great comedians. Their performances are a feast for the ears.

My most favorite scene is from Disc 1 tracks 18 to 21. It is hilarious to hear Callas singing the crafty Fiorilla, playing the "offended" wife to her husband's attempts to rein in her roving eye!. When she sings "No mia vita...mio tesoro" (No my darling... my treasure) with such fake sticky-honeyed-tongue,you can HEAR her fake tears. Callas subtly overplays her singing from such roles as Elvira and Medea in this very small scene alone. She does it with such mastery, you can hear the musical threads of Elvira from "Qui la voce" in Fiorilla's "voi crudele!... mi fatte oltraggio! mi offendete!" (you cruel one!, you humilliate me!, you offend me!) in such pitiable tones that her husband bids good-bye to his courage after listening to such demonstrations of wounded dignity and pride.

She sings her fake tears in such a way, that, for a moment you feel sorry for this wronged woman! then, through a subtle change in the shading of the notes,you realize, she's faking them! thorough the music, you can picture Fiorilla, looking thorough her fingers at her husband, pouring it on, laying it on thick, watching the effect her "tears" are having on the poor chap.

Callas is so associated with her roles of tragic women such as Norma, Lucia ,Violeta and Tosca that her talent for other roles are overshadowed. The La Divina is so versatile and talented that people almost forget that she is equally good in tragic and light comedy roles. The light and comic side of Callas is not often revealed. This recording proves that the charming and witty music that suites the character of Fiorilla is suited for the great talent of Maria Callas .The other performers in this recording did a superb job in their performances. Selim is a charm, Nicolai Gedda shows youth, and Stabile creates an impression in his role as Prosdocimo. Overall this is the Best Il turco in Italia among the three versions I have heard. So for Callas fans who want to hear the other side of Callas purchase this recording its worth every penny.
