 Domingo's most beautiful singing February 28, 2015 By Christopher D. (Kokomo, IN) See All My Reviews "Perhaps the best recital Domingo's ever recorded. (The other candidate would be his 1980 aria album with Giulini.) His beautiful young tenor and heartfelt singing in some of the most popular tenor arias. (Not only Caruso, they've been associated with every tenor ever since.) 'M'appari' is especially good, showing the refulgence of Domingo's midrange. The cabaletta section following 'O paradiso' is good to have; no one else since Caruso has recorded it. This is a winner, and at $6.99 a bargain." Report Abuse
