Franco Corelli 100 år

Idag den 8 april 2021 är det hundra år sedan den legendariske italienske tenoren Franco Corelli föddes. Förutom hans mycket vackra och personliga timbre så var han även känd för sin formidabla teknik som gjorde att rösten kunde flöda ut med outtömlig kraft och frihet över hela registret. Hans sångarkarriär började i Florens 1951 och 1953 blev han en del av ensemblen på Romoperan, samma år som han sjöng Pollione mot ingen mindre än Maria Callas som Norma. 1954 debuterade han på La Scala och därefter tog den internationella karriären fart och Corelli blev en av de mest eftertraktade tenorerna världen över. Han avled den 29 oktober 2003 och är begravd vid Cimitero monumentale di Milano.

Corelli var Birgit Nilssons mångåriga motpart i Puccinis Turandot och 1981 gästade han även SVT:s program “Här är ditt liv” när Lasse Holmqvist kidnappade Birgit Nilsson.

Lyckligtvis är Corelli välrepresenterad på skiva och nedan kommer några tips som du absolut inte får missa.
