The recording studio of the Welte firm on 5th Avenue with the organists Clarence Eddy, Samuel Atkinson Baldwin, Lynnwood Farnam, Richard Epstein & Edwin H. Lemare

The firm of M. Welte & Söhne maintained a branch in New York from 1865 until 1917 under the name of M. Welte & Sons. It had been established by Emil Welte (1841–1923, son of the company‘s founder); he lived in the USA permanently, only rarely visiting Freiburg. A recording studio with a grand piano for making piano recordings and a recording organ could be found at the best address on 5th Avenue. Piano recordings of the Welte firm were thus not only made in Freiburg im Breisgau from 1905 until 1932, but also in New York.

Denise Scharley (mezzo)

With her unique mezzo contralto voice, Denise Scharley was able to make an impression in all the great roles of her repertoire. Admired by Francis Poulenc, Scharley remains in the opinion of many, unmatched to this day in the role of the Prioress in Les Dialogues des Carmelites.

She also had the temperament of a tragic actress as she demonstrates on this CD as Carmen, Charlotte from Werther (Massenet) and Dalila from Saint-Saens.

An interesting document of her most famous performances.

Maria Callas (soprano)

French Radio National Orchestra, Georges Prêtre

Callas never sang a role in French on stage, though she had studied French repertoire as a student and one of her most famous roles, Cherubini’s Medea, had originally been written in French as Médée. From the early 1960s she made her home in Paris, where in 1961 she recorded this recital of French-language arias for both soprano and mezzo-soprano, composed in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. ‘The recital … is a tour de force of sympathetic interpretation,’ wrote Gramophone after her death. ‘The range is astounding, so much so that hearing the record is both an inspiring and upsetting experience; not merely because of the sense of the early loss of so great an artist [as Callas], but because the plights of these great human archetypes – Orpheus, Alceste, Carmen, Dalila, Chimène and Juliet – are themselves so uplifting and disturbing as Callas presents them to us … Records like this change people’s lives.’

Elīna Garanča’s personal choice of her greatest tracks, released to coincide with her receiving an Echo Award (6 October) & the publication of her memoirs in December

Ten years ago she made her sensational début at the Salzburg Festival, singing the role of Annio in Mozart’s Clemenza di Tito. Since then Elīna Garanča has become one of the greatest, most sought-after mezzo-sopranos in the world. As an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, she has made four solo albums for the label, and collaborated on many CD and DVD releases.

Now, with the artist’s help, we have brought together favourite tracks from her discography – the Seguidilla and Habanera from Carmen, the Flower Duet from Lakmé (with Anna Netrebko), the Barcarolle from The Tales of Hoffmann and many more, including Annio’s aria from Clemenza di Tito, some of her great bel canto roles and the touching Lullaby (Nana) by de Falla (see tracklist).

The CD booklet includes a newly-commissioned interview with Elina, where she reflects on her career and indicates where she is headed artistically. Her complete discography is also given there.
