Luciano Pavarotti 1935-2007

Luciano Pavarotti (12 October 1935 - 6 September 2007)

He had one of the best tenor voices in the world and in history. His passing is a loss to the world.

Amongst my favourite opera recordings are those with Pavarotti in Lucia di Lammermoor (with Sutherland), La Traviata (with Sutherland) and La Bohème (with Freni)

Donizetti - Lucia di Lammermoor / Sutherland · Pavarotti · Milnes · Ghiaurov · ROH Covent Garden · Bonynge
Verdi - La Traviata / Sutherland, Pavarotti, Manuguerra, NPO, Bonynge
Puccini: La Bohème
Lucia di Lammermoor (a veranno a te sull'aure)

La Traviata (Brindisi)

La Bohème (che gelida manina)

La Bohème ( O Soave Fanciulla)

The maestro's voice lives on forever more.

I came home very late as we had a work trivia/quiz night. Our team also won. The quiz night was a fund raiser for the Starlight Children's Foundation.
