Ward Marston
 
In 1997 Ward Marston was nominated for the Best Historical Album Grammy Award for his production work on BMG’s Fritz Kreisler collection. According to the Chicago Tribune, Marston’s name is ‘synonymous with tender loving care to collectors of historical CDs’. Opera News calls his work ‘revelatory’, and Fanfare deems him ‘miraculous’. In 1996 Ward Marston received the Gramophone award for Historical Vocal Recording of the Year, honouring his production and engineering work on Romophone’s complete recordings of Lucrezia Bori. He also served as re-recording engineer for the Franklin Mint’s Arturo Toscanini issue and BMG’s Sergey Rachmaninov recordings, both winners of the Best Historical Album Grammy. Born blind in 1952, Ward Marston has amassed tens of thousands of opera classical records over the past four decades. Following a stint in radio while a student at Williams College, he became well-known as a reissue producer in 1979, when he restored the earliest known stereo recording made by the Bell Telephone Laboratories in 1932. In the past, Ward Marston has produced records for a number of major and specialist record companies. Now he is bringing his distinctive sonic vision to bear on works released on the Naxos Historical label. Ultimately his goal is to make the music he remasters sound as natural as possible and true to life by ‘lifting the voices’ off his old 78 rpm recordings. His aim is to promote the importance of preserving old recordings and make available the works of great musicians who need to be heard.
"Maria Callas (1923-1977) was one of the greatest operatic sopranos of the 20th Century. Her magnetic charisma on stage and extensive vocal range of nearly three octaves enabled her to sing many operas that were rarely performed otherwise, with great success. She sang the title role in this Ponchielli opera 13 times throughout her career, including at her Italian debut in 1947."
 
Classic FM magazine - June 2005

"When the voice of La Gioconda happens to be that of Maria Callas in her prime, the spine-tingling factor is guaranteed...admirers of Callas need not hesitate... [Gianni Poggi] his voice is fresh and attractive and he is clearly involved in the part."
