Some time ago I wrote about this CD and I also posted the track list. Here. But I found some more information on it. Puccini - Opera Arias is part of a larger series of CDs called EMI MASTERS celebrating the greatest EMI recordings. Launching this month with 20 titles, the series features legendary performances by Pablo Casals, Steven Kovacevich, Itzhak Perlman, Simon Rattle, Otto Klemperer, Yehudi Menuhin, Dinu Lipatti, Walter Geiseking, Jacqueline du Pré, Janet Baker, André Cluytens, Thomas Beecham, Denis Brain, Herbert von Karajan, Emmanuel Pahud, Angela Gheorghiu, Alban Berg Quartet, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Maurice André - all recorded, mastered or re-mastered at London's legendary Abbey Road Studios.
.
The vocal part is represented by:
*Angela Gheorghiu - Puccini, opera arias
*Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau - Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin
*Elisabeth Schwarzkopf - R. Strauss: Four Last Songs
.
There is also one very special one for me, the Waltzes by Chopin performed by Dinu Lipatti.
.
