Overview

To tell the story of Plácido Domingo's recordings is a nearly impossible task given the sheer number of releases in multiple genres. This 3-CD deluxe set (presented in hardcover) attempts to pay tribute to this recorded legacy.

The first two CDs are devoted to opera arias, beginning with a very rare 1968 recital and ending with a recent recital of rare Leoncavallo (released in 2010). The third CD presents the "other" Domingo with selections from zarzuela to lighter classics and operetta.

In total, Plácido Domingo's discography on Deutsche Grammophon and Decca extends to 99 items, counting both original LP/CD and DVD releases. This does not include compilations derived from his original albums or multi-artist compilations in which he is included. There are 45 complete operas (including works in Spanish) on CD and 22 on DVD; plus 32 single "one-off" releases, comprising a great variety of genres.

This complete discography with color photos is included in this deluxe edition. From the Label
