"Vocal size and rugged style mark [Corelli] as an open-air tenor….The vibrancy of his timbre is unequalled among tenors, and often it holds a commendable warmth as well…."
- Paul Jackson, SIGN-OFF FOR THE OLD MET, p.374
“Dame Schwarzkopf (1915-2006) was a Flower Maiden in Wagner's PARSIFAL in her opera début. As the Marschallin in Strauss' DER ROSENKAVALIER she made history....she possessed not only an unmistakable timbre, but also a bewitching beauty.”
