Biography

Pavarotti's popularity was arguably bigger than that of any other living tenor in the world. His 1993 live performance in the New York's Central Park was attended by 500,000 fans while millions watched it on television. Pavarotti was blessed with a voice of a rare range, beauty and clarity, which was best during the 60s, 70s and 80s. In 1966 he became the first opera tenor to hit all ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent-a wonderful compilation CD. May 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful sounding CD, much better then some of the other CD compilations I have of Luciano. The remastering is excellent. Also the song selection is wonderful, a fine collection of Opera and Italian classics. Highlights are Caruso, Torna a Surriento, Mattinata, O Sole Mio (does anyone do it better?), Una Furtiva Lagrima, Dalla Sua Pace and Nessun Dorma (almost rattles the speakers, but is mastered just right to understand the power of Luciano's voice without distortion). Heck, every song on hear is a highlight, its a great collection and sounds wonderful; Fantastic. It's a must have for any Pavarotti fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Okay so track #1 aside... December 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I got this as a gift last Christmas and just got around to writing a review. To start off with, let me say that I think Pavarotti is the greatest tenor ever. Period. His command of his voice (breath control, relaxation, etc.) were absolutely flawless, and no he never shouted (except when he was getting old and losing his voice...maybe), cause I have never heard anyone shout with vibrato. Anyways, yes I have heard better accompanyments than Caruso's (track #1) on a certain children's show that will remain unnamed but it features a large purple dinosaur, but that doesn't ruin the entire CD for me like it did for the other reviewers. Let's face it the rest of the CD is Pavarotti classics. You won't find a better Nessun Dorma anywhere. His La Danza is wonderful, his L'elisir is legendary and La Boheme's Rodolfo is one of, if not his truly signature role. As for the Neapolitan songs, you can't criticize him for those. It's no different than Kathleen Battle throwing in a few spirituals on her CDs. Yes, I wish there were more arias on the CD (Ah! Mes amis for instance) but still was not dissappointed by this CD at all. Buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars lacking in the qualilty I expected October 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While I love the voice of Pavorotti, I was disappointed in this CD. It's clearly copies of recordings, and doesn't have the quality I have heard on earlier cd's.

I would recommend getting his cd's of his actual recordings, not a compilation cd like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars What the heck? September 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm so glad I didn't pay for this disc, instead checking it out from the my public library. The first track, "Caruso", had me thinking I was playing the wrong CD. It's not so much that it's electronic accompaniment. It's really bad synthesizer music. Horribly bad. Inexcusably bad. Cheap-lounge-singer-who-can't-afford-a-piano bad. That train wreck of track sets exactly the worst tone, destroying the mood for the rest of the album. If it weren't for some of the later selections from La Bohème and L'Elisir d'Amore, this CD would be a total loss. Even then, these gems are completely drowned in a gushing flow of treacly Italian "classics" apparently aimed at a certain demographic of blue-haired, tittering Pavarotti fans. I don't mean to sound like a snob. It's just the bad vibe from that first track rattling me. My advice: get it from the library and listen to your favorites. Avoid everything else on pain of intense aural assault.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay April 6, 2014

People are probably going to kill me for this, but he's just not as fun to listen to without the other three tenors. Before you hunt me down, however, know that he is the best of the three, just better together.

It seemed as though Pavarotti was just made of glorious song, how can one not like his singing.
This CD seemed to provide a mixture of styles and beautiful melody's.
