Description
A master of Italian buffo roles and an outstanding singing actor, Fernando Corena was the son of a Turkish father and an Italian mother who was born in Switzerland. In this 1957 recital he also shows himself highly adept in French roles. Selections come from Rossini's Cenerentola ("Mid rampolli femminini"; "Sia qualunque delle figlie") and L'Italiana in Algeri ("Ho un gran peso sulla testa"); Cimarosa's II Matrimonio Segreto ("Udite, tutti, udite"); Massenet's Grisélidis ("Loin de sa femme qu'on est bien"); Thomas's Le Ciad ("Le tambour-major tout galonne d'or"); Saint-Saëns (La pas d'armes du Roi Jean); Gounod's Philemon et Baucis ("Au bruit des lourds marteaux"); and Offenbach's La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein ("Piff-paff-puff").

"The Offenbach is the entrance air of 'General Bourn', a French cousin of the Duke of Plaza Tora in The Gondoliers. Irresistible, and put over, like everything else on this side, with splendid verve. In the Italiana excerpt, Corena catches the rueful 'happy but none too happy' tone very cleverly. This is admirable vocal acting…. Rossini and Cimarosa bass arias, on their own and out of context, need all the sparkle a singer like this gives them."—Gramophone
