Luciano Pavarotti (1935-2007). If not the greatest tenor of all time, the greatest tenor who recorded with the best techniques (we know how intense he was thanks to tapes and Cd's, we just know Caruso by old 78RPM's). The voice of Opera, the synonym of "awesome vocie." He died today in Italy. Here's a performance of "La Mia Canzone Al Vento:"




Besides his voice, he will be remembered as the one who extended a hand to mass audiences so they can discover Opera. He even did the unthinkable for some purists: sing with the Spice Girls, Barry White, James Brown and even -yuck!- U2. He didn't care. He wanted all of us to discover old music. He was like the CacaoRock of Opera! Hee hee! There you go!


Rest in peace, Maestro.
