Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor
Maria Callas, Giuseppe di Stefano, Rolando Panerai, Nicola Zaccaria
Berlin Radio Orchestra
Herbert von Karajan, conductor
Callas and di Stefano live with von Karajan, all in peak condition, believing totally in a work which had largely been laughed off during the preceding half-century, if not longer, as not worthy of serious contemplation. If you still have doubts about the greatness of Callas, listen to this.
Charles Panzera, baritone; Magdeleine Panzéra-Baillot, piano
The art of French song as no longer practiced today, with a purity of style and diction and a naturalness: Panzéra offers a lesson for those willing to pay attention.
