Farewell Pavarotti

With news that tenor Luciano Pavarotti is in his final hours at his home in Modena, time to remember just how tremendous the maestro was.

Here at YouTube is Pav in Paris in (or close to) his prime, singing Nessun Dorma under conductor James Levine with a voice of pure gold.

Farewell Luciano.

UPDATE 1: Malvina Major and Lindsay Perigo discuss Pavarotti's life, art and voice with John Campbell on TV3's CampbellLive. See Campbell Live Remembers Pavarotti - TV3.

UPDATE 2: Perigo's radio tribute to Luciano this morning is here.

  1. Yes, very sad Peter.

    A great man who will be missed.
    He possessed a natural ability and, curiously, never felt the need to sell telephones or take part in amateur hour 'Talent Quests'.
