12. Ponchielli - Cielo e mar!
Taken from Ponchielli's great opera (and the only one of his regularly performed today), La Giaconda, this allows Calleja to really open up his range. Interestingly, the same opera also contained the famous 'Dance Of The Hours' section of ballet music, made even more famous when it appeared in Disney's Fantasia. Photo: Mathias Bothor / Decca 2011
