Romantica: The Very Best of Luciano Pavarottiby Luciano Pavarotti
In 1961, Pavarotti made his professional debut as Rodolfo in La Bohème in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and in the decades that followed, he firmly established himself as one of the great voices of the century, achieving near pop-star levels of celebrity through his genre-bending work on the Pavarotti and Friends albums and with the Three Tenors. Romantica: The Very Best of Luciano Pavarotti assembles a collection of highlights from the singular tenor's lengthy recording career, with the selections spanning the years 1970 to 1988. His popular work is represented through classic Italian songs ("O sole mio," "Chitarra romana," "Torna a Surriento"), while some of the best-known opera arias from the Italian Romantic repertoire ("Che gelida manina," "Una furtiva lagrima," "Nessun dorma") are included, too, along with a pair of favorite Mozart arias. With a varied and tuneful program, Romantica is a fine overview of the career of one of the most remarkable vocal talents of our time -- as well as a highly enjoyable collection of familiar songs and arias.
