About

Has there ever been an Italian tenor as generously gifted by nature as Franco Corelli? Corelli’s virile tone and movie star looks combined to seduce audiences around the world over a period of more than twenty years. Opera lovers who want to understand the Italian term 'squillo' (ring) need only listen to the viscerally thrilling climatic notes of any Corelli recording made in his prime.

Happily, Corelli bequeathed posterity a rich treasury of commercial and live recordings, and many of his greatest are collected on this super budget 16 CD box set.
