The second edition of Divina's CDs is «enhanced CDs» with documentation in CD-ROM format. More information about the «patches» on the Melodram CDs is given in THE OPERA QUARTERLY Vol.17 No.3 Summer 2001 pp.553-554.

Comments:- Recording of a performance at the Edinburgh Festival (21 August 1957). Accordingto «Radio Times» (August 16 1957 p.39, August 23 1957 p.34) «La Sonnambula» was broadcast on the BBC Third Programme on 21 August 1957 and on the BBC Home Service on 26 August 1957. According to the cast lists given in «Radio Times» the role of Lisa was to have been sung by Maria Luisa Gaviola on 21 August and by Greta Rapisardi on 26 August. This role was also assigned to Greta Rapisardi in all performances in «The Edinburgh International Festival 1947-1996» by Eileen Miller (p.187). The website of La Scala gives (gave?) Edith Martinelli as singing this role in all performances (as indicated above). The performances on 29 August and 3 September 1957 are reviewed in OPERA October 1957 p.633. According to Dyneley Hussey in «The Listener» (September 5 1957 p.367) «It was all too evident in the first broadcast of La Sonnambula that Mme Callas was doing herself less than justice». It is claimed on Divina's website (click link below) that the recording on their CDs is in stereo but this seems unlikely. The BBC broadcasts were transmitted in mono on medium wave and FM. So if this recording is really in stereo it must have been made in the theatre by someone or by an organisation (BBC or EMI?) with a stereo recorder. Alternatively, it could be a mono recording which has been electronically processed to give a stereo effect. The Columbia studio recording of the same year was in mono but later released in artificial stereo on EMI SLS 5134

Recordings of La sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini are surveyed in the following publications:-

HARRIS p.265; Opera on Record 2 p.115; CELLETTI p.72; Opera on CD (1) p.38 (2) p.44 (3) p.49; L'Avant Scéne Opéra No.178 p.72; MET p.18; MET(VID) p.7; PENGUIN p.13; GIUDICI p.29 (2) p.47; Opéra International No.253 janvier 2001 p.10

Comments:- Recording of a performance at the Edinburgh Festival (26 August 1957). Accordingto «Radio Times» (August 16 1957 p.39, August 23 1957 p.34) «La Sonnambula» was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 21 August 1957 and on BBC Home Service on 26 August 1957. According to the cast lists given in «Radio Times» the role of Lisa was tohave been sung by Maria Luisa Gaviola on 21 August and by Greta Rapisardi on 26 August. This role was also assigned to Greta Rapisardi in all performances in «The Edinburgh International Festival 1947-1996» by Eileen Miller (p.187). The website of La Scala gives (gave?) Edith Martinelli as singing this role in all performances (as indicated above). The performances on 29 August and 3 September1957 are reviewed in OPERA October 1957 p.633. According to Dyneley Hussey in «The Listener» (September 5 1957 p.367) «It was all too evident in the first broadcast of La Sonnambula that Mme Callas was doing herself less than justice».The second edition of Divina's CDs are «enhanced CDs» with documentation in CD-ROM format

Comments:- Recording of a performance at La Scala (7 December 1952, see OPERA February 1953p.95). It has been claimed that part of the EMI recording was «pirated» from an ARKADIA recording (DIAPASON avril 1995 p.8;see also ORPHEUS, November 1997 S.91,OPÉRA INTERNATIONAL mai 1998 No.224 p.5). According to Robert E. Seletsky in the«original 1952 broadcast, the sound level dropprd precipitously in the 'a capella' ensemble near the end of the first act» and in the EMI versions, «the damaged section is replaced by two minutes from a 1960 Leyla Gencer performance»(OPERA QUARTERLY Vol.16 No.2 p.252). The G.O.P. and Nuova Era releases «retain the original passage , raising the gain and filtering out the the resulting hissand hum» (Seletzky loc.cit. p.255)

Comments:- Recording of a performance in Lisbon (27 March 1958). See the ARSC Journal 1987 Vol.19 No.2-3 pp.54-61. According to Robert E. Seletzky EMIs 1997 remastering «is dominated by shrill upper-frequency distortion and accentuated tape hiss - in short, unlistenable». According to Nuno Miguel Marqques (Opera-l Sun,17 Mar 2002 10:38:50) a version of this recording made from the tapes in possession of Radio Difusão Portuguesa was issued on CD in a limited edition in December 2000 in Portugal. The recording issued by Premiere is a copy of this and that on The Mike Richter CD-ROM is a also a «copy», but in MP3 format. Mike Richter has published a very interesting history of the various versions of this recording on ARSCLIST@sun8.LOC.GOV
