All 39 albums in the Maria Callas Remastered Edition are now available to millions of listeners on the Deezer streaming service as part of Warner Classics’ new app dedicated to the most famous opera star in recording history.
Warner Classics’ Maria Callas Remastered Edition was one of the most highly anticipated and critically acclaimed releases of 2014, winning the Classica and Diapason awards for Reissue of the Year. These accolades are testimony to the fruits of a yearlong labour of love, in which La Divina’s complete studio recordings (1949-69) were remastered by a team of expert sound engineers at the famed Abbey Road Studios, in 24-bit/96kHz sound for the first time, from the original master tapes.
Available for free in English, French, Italian and German, the app is designed to offer not only an accessible introduction for users beginning to explore classical music thanks to the convenience of online streaming, but also an indispensible collection of high-quality recordings and biographical materials for opera-lovers and completists.
The Maria Callas app offers extensive insights into the life of an artist who transcended the world of opera to become a true, everlasting cultural icon. Alongside the searchable catalogue of the Remastered Edition’s complete opera and recital albums, including an album showcasing her greatest arias, there is a detailed timeline of Callas’ career and tragic personal life, featuring rare photographs of the diva.
