About

The leading spinto tenor of his generation, Franco Corelli was closely associated with the title role in Umberto Giordano's French Revolutionary opera Andrea Chénier, a rôle in which he had few rivals. Here he brings his typical fervour, spirit and radiant high notes to all the work's ardent protestations of love - not just to the "Improvviso" in Act One.

In this live recording from the first night of the Vienna State Opera production on 26 June 1960, Corelli's partner is Renata Tebaldi. Contracted to rival recording companies (Decca and EMI),Tebaldi and Corelli made very few commercial recordings together and so this performance of Chénier is one to cherish. The main attraction is Corelli who blazes forth in the climaxes of Giordano's music. All-in-all a dream team, documented nowhere else, in  Giordano's most famous opera.
