Corelli was the last in a line of truly heroic romantic tenors, the like of whose brazen trumpet tone has not been heard since he retired in 1976. Nine years earlier, he had begun an album of Italian opera arias for EMI, with which he was not satisfied and clearly intended to return to, as Rodolfo’s Che gelida manina was left unfinished, lacking its opening section. What remained is issued here for the first time, along with the rest of the 1967 sessions - five Verdi tracks and one each by Gounod, Massenet and Catalani - and two Verdi numbers that Corelli overdubbed in 1965 onto orchestra. .

Franco Corelli had one of the powerful tenor voices of the twentieth century. Think Mario del Monaco with more beauty and grace; think Richard Tucker with a smoother voice. He had annoying touches in his singing, such as those "catches" here and there. This is the very best of Franco Corelli.

Franco Corelli (8 April 1921 – 29 October 2003) was an Italian tenor who had a major international opera career between 1951 and 1976. Associated in particular with the spinto and dramatic tenor roles of the Italian repertory, he was celebrated universally for his powerhouse voice, electrifying top notes, clear timbre, passionate singing and remarkable performances. Dubbed the "prince of tenors", Corelli possessed handsome features and a charismatic stage presence which endeared him to audiences
