Notes & Reviews:

Born in 1918, Anselmo Colzani could not begin vocal instruction until after World War II. Originally a typewriter repairman, he was plagued by doubt about his career change before and after his debut. His international breakthrough came in 1960 when he replaced Leonard Warren at short notice at the Met. There was much competition among the many fine baritones of the period but Colzani did succeed in making a name for himself, particularly at the Metropolitan Opera.
