Since the discussion about the Callas/de Sabata Tosca  led to the discussioin about the Furttwängler Tristan, this might be interesting: I once heard an interview in which the interviewer asked Callas which conductor whom she never worked with did she wish she had. He obvioiusly expected her to say Toscanini, but her answer was Furtwängler. Fascinating what they might have done together. Another source close to her said that her two favorite classical musicians were Furtwängler and Arthur Rubenstein. If she was at a concert she didn't like, she would go home and put on Furtwängler records.
