Habanera and La Wally on collectible vinyl by EMI
According to Gramophone website, to celebrate Record Store Day UK on Saturday, April 21, a number of special vinyl classical issues are being released. EMI is releasing a seven-inch single that includes a unique duet version of the Habañera from Bizet's Carmen which unites Maria Callas and Angela Gheorghiu in a specially engineered recording complete with a new orchestral accompaniment. Also on the disc are favourite arias from Catalani's La Wally (Gheorghiu) and Puccini's Gianni Schicchi and Tosca (both Callas). The single is limited to 1000 copies and is adorned with the old HMV 'celebrity' red label
. Do you still own the device (turntable, if I'm not wrong) that plays vinyls? I do!
