CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hear the Tenor of the century! This Franco Corelli CD contains many of his greatest recordings...the long lost 2nd half of "A Portrait of Franco Corelli". No tenor can compete with the sheer power and excitment of Corelli's high "c" from Di quella pira. After hearing his impassioned "E lucevan le stella"...with it's awe inspiring diminuendo phrase "Le belle forme disciogliea dai veli...", all must realize that in Corelli we trully had the Tenor of the ages. I challenge all the Pav fans to listen to the "REAL MAN!" Be warned, Track #18, his Nessun dorma will forever ruin your enjoyment of this song when others sing it. No one holds the "Vincero" like Corelli. NO ONE! Enjoy the albulm, I challenge anyone to find a "Vincero" like Corelli's"

"If you have not heard Franco Corelli, this cd is the start. It gives a perfect portrait of Mr.Corelli. It`s one of my most played records ever. It's so exciting. But watch out! After listening to it, you can find many other tenors a little bit boring, if you`re comparing. Of course Corelli had his faults, and they are easy to find. But when you hear the thrilling sound of this abnormal tenorvoice, his brilliant boldly high notes, his intensity; they are very easy to ignore.
So if you`re looking for a different singer, buy this one and
you`re gonna be excited!"
