that's a lot of music for you money (if you like that sort of thing).

Found this review on Amazon ... might be of help

"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. "

Hi,voted Hot.
