Vinyl Mono 16/44 (RCA) Tito Schipa – Operatic Recital (1924-1928)

front-small-boxsetOne of the few records I got from my beloved uncle Totò after his dead
Admirers of the incomparable tenor Tito Schipa will not want to be without this. No less than 15 arias Schipa recorded between 1924 and 1928 are included. Transfers have been made from clean, faultless 78 originals, some of them very rare. Schipa’s voice seems to emerge successfully from the special Nimbus transferring process. The result is magic. What a wonderful voice! This is one of those rare cds that can be played over and over a hundred times and the music and emotion remains as fresh as the first listening!

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (London) Renata Tebaldi – A Tebaldi Festival

front-small-boxset
There is nothing on this collection of arias/songs that I dislike. All are sung beautifully, with utmost artistry and dramatic emotion.
Tebaldi never had the severe vocal crisis of Maria Callas, so even in these last years there isn’t even a semblance of a wobble. This is not an attack on La Callas, it is simply the truth. Throughout her life, Tebaldi had a good, solid technique and a lush velvety tone only exemplified by the acquisition of full, chest tones towards the end of her career.
