Overview

What's more romantic than three tenors? How about 11! Pavarotti is here, singing two of his hits, "Una furtiva lagrima" and "Che gelida manina." These arias were recorded in 1967 at the dawn of his career, and he already had the qualities now loved by millions. Bocelli is here, too, in a typically heartfelt song by the popular composer Eberhard Schoener. But along with our current superstars are legends from the past. Two magisterial cuts by Enrico Caruso prove why some connoisseurs still consider him the greatest tenor of all. Fritz Wunderlich offers enchanting Mozartian purity in an aria from "The Magic Flute" as well as a tasty bit of schmaltz in an aria by operetta master Franz Lehár. The Schmaltz King himself, Mario Lanza, gives an irresistably lush "Be My Love." Jussi Björling's stunning singing of Puccini's "E Lucevan le stelle" from "Tosca" may be the best of all, though Richard Tucker's amazing trills in an aria from "Il Trovatore" are a close second. ROMANTIC NIGHTS lives up to its name.
