Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the strictest sense of the word, the late Pavarotti was truly an Icon. With a career spanning almost 50 years, Pavarotti was heralded throughout the world for his range, style and personality, not to mention his perfect pitch. Standards from the annals of operatic history came to life again when he sang their joyful or sorrowful lyrics as a seasoned interpreter. Many of the classics he was associated with are contained here. From the passionate “Nessun Dorma!” and “Una Furtiva Lagrima” to the joyous pop-leaning “‘O Sole Mio” and “Funiculi Funicula,” the voice was thunderous, resonant, pure and natural. The Pavarotti legacy most assuredly lives on within this new ICON collection and in the annals of his numerous recordings and album Read more releases. Read less
