Format: Audio CD
This CD features Placido Domingo, the best tenor of the world today, in his youth. It contains in their entirety the three opera aria recordings made by the big maestro for RCA:Romantic Arias (1968); Domingo Sings Caruso (1971) and La Voce d'Oro(1972). The CD includes then some of the greatest arias of the repertoire, including Wagner's "In fernem Land" from Lohengrin.
Domingo was less than 30 years old when he made these recordings. The high notes weren't that good especially the high C in "Salut demeure chaste et pure" from Faust. However, you can already be amazed by Domingo's wonderful technique in breathing control, which has now become a legend.
Overall, the CD is a must in every Operatic collection. It contains 35 arias, 2 Cds for about 15$! Don't Look, however, for Nessun Dorma or the 2 Tosca Arias...they're just not there!
And if you're looking for great arias by Domingo, I strongly recommend Bravo Domingo release by Deutshe Grammophon. You will really see this great tenor at his best.

This is a truly lovely set, beautifully presented by RCA. My favorite tenor, Domingo dominates my opera collection. I also have about a dozen compilations, operatic and otherwise, and find myself returning again and again to this goldmine. Yes, he's young (27-31) and when I hear his later work I like that best, but then I come back and listen to this and it's awfully good, too! Must have both. He pours that passionately musical soul of his into these arias with an eager abandonment that, in a way, nearly equals the mature intensity that he continues to develop and deepen to this day. Here that fire is already blazing like an inferno in "O inferno!... Sento avvampar nel anima". There is stunning power and, as the liner notes put it, "temperament" in this and many others like "Musette! O gioia della mia dimora", "Torna ai felici dì" and "Non saria meglio . . . Tu sola a me". Some of these arias may be as unfamiliar to you as they were to me and that is another reason I value this set. I simply don't hear these lesser-known arias elsewhere.

These two discs bring together three of Domingo's records for RCA (plus "Pourquoi me reveiller" and the two final Leoncavallo selections); "Romantic Arias" 1968 fills disc 1, then "Domingo Sings Caruso" 1971 and "La Voce d'Oro" 1972. It is an interesting mix with everything from Mozart to Wagner to verismo and French opera but it works and they are sequenced tastefully, unlike some compilations which artlessly lump arias together by language or composer regardless of how rough the transitions might be.

This "Young Domingo" release reflects the love that must have gone into making those original records.

Listening to this man sing makes me wonder why I ever even tried to have a career. His voice is too perfect, especially in these recordings. Absolutely flawless, beautiful, exciting, with all the drama of the music and libretto built into the sound. This is the greatest tenor that ever set foot on stage.

This 2 disc set on the RCA label, were some of the earliest recording made by Domingo. The voice was not the fully formed voice of later years but it is bright and fresh a full indicator of what was in the future for this world-famous tenor. The selections are, for the most part, from the standard tenor repertoire but about the middle of the first disc, there are the lovely (and rarely heard) arias from Puccin's 'Le Villi' and the Serenade from Mascagni's 'Iris'. The two arias from Leoncavallo's 'La Boheme' are also 'a breath of fresh air' on these very enjoyable discs by the younger Domingo.

Wonderful recordings. We hear Domingo in great form en in some opera treasures which are very unknown (Example : Chatterton by Leoncavallo).
When you are an opera lover, you need certainly these CD's.
