Notes & Reviews:

Jose was the role of Corelli's debut and the one he performed most often. Here he is in his early prime, sounding like a hungry animal in a cage, the voice brilliant and full of core and bite. Yet he also is plaintive, particularly in the final scene. Throughout it he finds an extraordinary number of vocal colors, and his desperation at the end is chilling. Palermo, February 1959.
