Notes and Editorial Reviews

Music from Puccini, Verdi, Donizetti, Bellini, Mozart, and Massenet

Luciano Pavarotti (1935-2007) was an international star for over 40 years and one of the greatest tenors of any age. Best-suited to the operas of Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, and Puccini, Pavarotti gave exciting performances that became feats of virtuosity in the eyes of his public, especially when he was required to repeatedly use his top notes. Under the rubric, Pavarotti and Friends, he was one of the first classical artists to release crossover albums with popular musicians for charity, and his performances in the 1990s with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras as the Three Tenors were enormous global hits. - Blair Sanderson, AllMusic Guide
