Decca Classics has this month announced the release of a new 101-disc Luciano Pavarotti collection: ‘Luciano Pavarotti: The Complete Opera Recordings’ – released to mark this year’s tenth anniversary of the preeminent Italian tenor’s 2007 death.
The set includes 95 CDs, six Blu-ray discs – and a hardback photo book.
“Although he was never as versatile a singer as his contemporary Placido Domingo, he tackled a surprisingly wide range of musical styles in the Italian repertoire … including high and relatively florid bel canto parts, something few of his would-be successors attempt today,” Hugh Canning of The London Times has said.
Every role since his 1961 debut recording of ‘La Bohème’ is included in the collection.
Track previews available now on Amazon.
