Notes and Editorial Reviews
· Decca is proud to reissue some of its most iconic Pavarotti recordings, including Puccini’s Turandot. Now available with translated booklet libretti. The box set features two CDs digitally remastered at 24 bit 96 kHz and a High-Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray Disc.
· The editions highlight the key partnerships in Pavarotti’s early recording career including those with Sutherland, Caballe, Ghiaurov and Mehta.
· 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the relationship between Luciano Pavarotti and Decca – a fitting occasion to marvel once again at the sheer quality of the voice of the 20th Century’s greatest tenor.
