Product Description

Amazon.ca

Adulé ou honni, Luciano Pavarotti ne laisse pas indifférent, jusqu'au mouchoir blanc qu'il tient dans l'une de ses mains, et qui fait aussi partie de sa légende, à l'instar de sa faconde, de ses démêlés avec le fisc, de ses frasques amoureuses. Bref, le célèbre ténor italien fait depuis belle lurette les choux gras de la presse à sensation. Au point que l'on en viendrait à oublier le fantastique musicien qu'il est : une voix en or, à la large tessiture, aux graves puissamment ancrés. Son répertoire de prédilection ? Donizetti, Bellini, Verdi, Puccini, Leoncavallo, Mascagni, qu'il transcende de sa forte présence vocale. La firme Decca a réalisé une compilation de quelques-uns de ses meilleurs enregistrements, agrémentée d'un livre-souvenir de 80 pages et d'une retranscription inédite d'un 45 tours de 1964 : son premier témoignage sonore pour Decca. --Pierre Guillaume

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must-Have for Any Pavarotti Fan Jan. 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
...and that certainly goes without saying. My one tiny little problem with it is that his recordings of "Santa Lucia" and "Caruso" are not on this incredible box-set. Even though I have those recordings on other CDs, I still think those are very important pieces to include on this set (assuming that this set of Pavi hits would be the only compilation that that any fan of this phenomenal tenor would have). He is probably my biggest idol, and he deserves to have been one of the biggest opera stars in history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond all description... Sept. 18 2006
By Mr. Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a boy, I heard so many hyperbolic references to the legendary Enrico Caruso that I chose to purchase a remastered copy of his "Greatest Hits" when I first began to acquire recordings as a young man. Soon after, I discovered Pavarotti and my life was changed by his music. Caruso ended up in the Goodwill Store. I am convinced that in 500 years, should the earth cool again and the Muslim hoards abate, the civilized world will still tell tales of the greatest tenor. I have often found myself grumpy when searching for recordings of Pavarotti because of the inconsistent fidelity of the recordings. That search for the definitive Pavarotti recordings, regarding both content and fidelity, has ended with the release of this extraordinary collection. Worth it's weight in gold, the Puccinni Volume (#5) alone is enough to send someone like me into hyperspace. I am astounded by the beauty and power of these performances. I will always remember the day, not long ago, when a NPR commentator glibly mentioned between the weather and the night's playlist the terrible words, "Luciano Pavarotti has announced that he is retiring from Opera." I felt as if something indescribably beautiful was fading from the world. Of course, beauty in all of its earthly forms is fleeting at best, but these discs contain a reflection of it that will surely bolster any soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Special Dec 20 2012
By count_zero - Published on Amazon.com

It includes my favorite, the rare La Ghirlandeina which he sang to win a competition in Wales early on to help launch his career -- it is a traditional song of the Cathedral in Modena, his home. If you do not know it, google it and play the Youtube version.
