Here is a users review on Amazon:-

"Great survey of the Diva's greatest decade by vocal scholar Jürgen Kesting, with 26 CD's unevenly filled, but with great sound, containing many of Callas' great recordings, live and in studio (now that they are in the public domain). The big booklet is meaty in weight and ideas (unfortunately the Spanish edition -the one I bought- has a sloppy and poor translation fron the Deutsch). Beautifully designed and packed, this is a wonderful way to enjoy the art of the Divina, even for those of us that already own all the complete recordings from which this selection has been so expertly made. The sound is great, in some cases better than in my older editions. Pity the part of Tosca is not represented at all. Obviously overlooked by mistake in the actual production of the set, because Kesting comments on several excerpts from the live Mexican performance of 1952 and the EMI studio recording of 1953. I easily solved the problem by making with my computer an extra CD (24 bis) with all the highlights mentioned by the author in the booklet, but it is a serious mistake that the company could only remedy with a second edition, perhaps quite unlikely. Nevertheless, strongly recommended. By the way, it only cost me 59,95 euros in a store in Spain. : )"

got mine delivered this morning - absolutely fantastic deal but got it from amazon for aprox £12
i also found a review there that advised e-mailing the record company for the missing 27th cd and gave an address - have tried it but not heard back
have not got the address handy but if you search this irem on amazon it will come up in a review - someone said the record company had sent them one and that Tosca was def missing by mistake - so worth a try
thanks for the great tip OP what a deal!:-D

:thumbsup: after reading a review on Amazon which mentioned the missing Tosca performance i e-mailed the record company in Hamburg [email protected]">[email protected] website - [url]www.membran.net[/url] and asked if they would send me the possible 27th cd
That was only a few days ago and today it arrived in a cardboard sleeve with same photo as on the box-set on the front and the whole 76 mins is Tosca
The set is fantastic and all for £12! - thanks OP - make sure you e-mail and ask for one
best wishes
chi :-D
