The complete Maria Callas edition comprises a lavish boxed set of 39 newly remastered studio recordings (totalling 69 discs) from 1949 to 1969 — each with the original sleeve art preserved. Show less

Alison Balsom Play

"She makes the trumpet sing with an irresistible exuberance and eloquence."
Richard Morrison, The Times, September 2008

Antonio Pappano Play

Currently Music director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and the Orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, Antonio Pappano was born in London of Italian parents. At the age of 13 he moved with his family to the United States, where he continued his studies in piano, composition and conducting. Work as a repetiteur and assistant conductor rapidly led to his engagement in theatres throughout the world: New York City Opera, Gran Teatro del Liceo (Barcelona), Frankfurt Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Bayreuth Festival, where he was assistant to Daniel Barenboim for Tristan und Isolde, Parsifal and the Der Ring des Nibelungen.

Xuefei Yang Play

"The colour and fluency of her playing is a delight ... The guitar world has a new star. (Gramophone)
"Every classical guitarist is a Spaniard, and young Xuefei Yang is, too - despite the fact that she was born in Beijing." (New York Sun)
