Notes and Editorial Reviews

Luciano Pavarotti has captivated music lovers ever since scoring his first major triumph at Covent Garden in 1966 in the role of Tonio in 'La Fille du regiment,' a performance that earned him the title "King of the High C's." But what has been perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this amazing singer's career is his ability to transcend the usual fan base of opera aficionados and cultivate an adoring global following of enormous proportions by virtue of his boundary-crossing efforts. ROMANTICA is a testament to Pavarotti's legendary status, a collection of recordings that present the great tenor in a variety of settings showcasing his inimitable artistry, from well-known operatic arias to classic Italian songs all executed with his Read more extraordinary combination of vocal power, lyricism, and emotional expression. The disc concludes with an emphatic exclamation point in the form of what has become Pavarotti's signature showpiece, the aria "Nessun dorma," in a majestic performance that leaves no doubt as to why listeners have thrilled to this unparalleled voice for so many years.
