Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Plácido Domingo pays homage not only to a country and a song genre but to the line of powerful, popular tenors to which he is the obvious heir: Caruso, Lanza et al. This is a beautiful recital on any level, but it is all the more remarkable considering its place in the tenor's very long - and very distinguished - career. The question Italia, Ti Amo poses is this: when Domingo stops singing, who can succeed to the almost mythic stature he holds in our minds and hearts?"

- Drew MInter, Metropolitan Opera News, June 2006
