"During his day, Mr. Corelli was criticized for his often hammy singing. He was a famously lusty tenor, and no score marking, let alone a mere conductor, was going to limit how long he held his ringing high notes. Today, when we lack tenors with his kind of vocal charisma, it is exciting to hear someone with such an enormous, vibrant voice unleash it so confidently."
- Anthony Tommasini, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 24 Sept., 2000
