Overview

The Record of Singing Vol. 5: From the LP to the Digital Era

EMI Classics is proud to present two 10-CD boxed sets of The Record of Singing. The first release covers the earliest vocal recordings from 1899 through 1952 (when the era of the 78 rpm shellac record effectively ended), and the second set is from 1953 to 2007 (the introduction of the vinyl LP through the digital era and the CD). Together these 20 CDs offer a breath-taking overview of the past century of classical vocal music.

This second set ushers in a new golden age of timeless vocalists like Maria Callas, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Victoria de los Angeles, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Nicolai Gedda, and Boris Christoff, and then goes on to the subsequent generations of big names such as Franco Corelli, Plácido Domingo, José Carreras, Montserrat Caballé, Mirella Freni, and several hundred more, and including vocal stars of today such as Angela Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna, Rolando Villazón, Natalie Dessay, and many others.

Because each singer appears only once, these sets allow the listener to compare and evaluate the voices and singing styles of the whole of the 20th century, as well as marvel at the development of sound recording through the years, from the primitive sounds of the earliest shellac discs through the introduction of electrical recording in 1925, the arrival of tape recording in 1949, the introduction of stereo in 1955, right up to the sophisticated refinement of today’s digital technology. A must-have for fans of vocal music! From the Label
