Overview

Recordings can provide entertainment or document musical history. Sometimes they do both. That's certainly the case with the recordings of Enrico Caruso. Although he died in 1921, many still consider him the greatest tenor of all time. These 27 selections were Caruso's first recordings, made all the way back in 1902 and '03. Listening to his voice leap from the scratchy grooves of these primitive shellac discs is cause for amazement, even today. The piano accompaniments may sound distant and fuzzy, but the voice has tremendous presence. Ward Marston's transfers are excellent, keeping the bronze-like shine of the voice intact, while eliminating as much of the surface noise as possible. The disc offers 27 selections, including evergreens from Aida, Tosca, Manon, L'Elisir d'amore, and others, as well as some arias and songs that have fallen by the wayside in the century since these recordings were made. Naxos plans to release all of Caruso's recordings; when completed, this will rival RCA's acclaimed 12-CD set -- especially at Naxos' super-budget price. Bring 'em on!
