Puccini: La Bohèmeby Luciano Pavarotti, Mirella Freni, Herbert von Karajan
The original recording has been remastered/i>
In celebration of Puccini’s 150th birth anniversary, Decca is reissuing the definitive recording of La Bohème in a deluxe package. Featuring the luminous voices of Mirella Freni and Luciano Pavarotti under the expert direction of Herbert von Karajan, who leads the Berlin Philharmonic, this truly is operatic gold.
The original recording has been remastered in 96kHz/24-bit sound for incredible clarity and depth. The deluxe package includes a bonus disc of Mirella Freni discussing Puccini (whose works played a significant role in her career) and working with Herbert von Karajan: a valuable living document of one of opera’s greatest sopranos!
The entire package includes essays, a full libretto and numerous rare photographs from the historic recording session. Rarely has a recording retained such an honored place of distinction in the catalog—and there is not better tribute to Puccini than this deluxe limited edition release. From the Label
