CD Reviews

A shameful but delicious pleasure
Mr. Jeffrey Belcher | Melbourne, Victoria Australia | 03/22/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An extreme example of throwing away the score, indulgent tempi and holding onto to notes for what Callas called "easy applause" But Franco how the Parma audience loves you! I have to admit I do to and I forgive you everything.

Perhaps this is not a landmark performance of Tosca but it must be the most exciting and thrilling reading of Cavaradossi ever. Corelli's star is absolutely ascendant. Other reviewers might go into more detail about the pros and cons of the whole performance and the other leads but I was just so exhilarated by Corelli that I must give it 5 stars.

I actually bought my copy as a download directly from the Bel Canto Society website. Buy it here, buy it there but buy it somewhere."
