Described by Maria Callas as 'the greatest singer of us all' and by Luciano Pavarotti as 'the Queen of Queens in all of singing, who... almost more than any other singer, had the unique combination of voice and musical profundity to advance operatic interpretation by decades, simply by the sheer genius of her artistry...', Rosa Ponselle was for nineteen years the leading soprano at the Metropolitan Opera. This 3 CD set includes her last studio recordings from 1939 as well as the historical sessions she made 15 years later at her home, 'Villa Pace', in Baltimore, when the great diva was persuaded to come out of retirement.
