Notes and Editorial Reviews

This 2-CD set celebrates the 75th anniversary of Luciano Pavarotti. Known worldwide as the superstar of stadium concerts and sporting spectaculars, Pavarotti was, without question, a true legend of the opera stage. The thrilling sound of his tenor reached every seat in the house; his vocal technique was impeccable; his stage presence honest and touching.

This collection is a feast of truly great singing and a reminder that Luciano Pavarotti was above all, a great tenor of the opera stage.

Popular classics featuring the "King of the High Cs" include favorites by Verdi, Donizetti, Mozart and Puccini - from operas including La boheme, La traviata, Tosca, Lucia di Lammermoor, Rigoletto, and Turandot.
