Los Angeles – November 10, 2017 - Prior to his passing in 2007, the legendary tenor Luciano Pavarotti conquered the mainstream like no opera performer ever had, winning a devoted worldwide audience that embraced his charismatic personality and commanding talent. Pavarotti spent most of his five-and-a-half-decade career recording for the venerable Decca label, building a powerful body of recordings that showcased the singular magnificence of his one-of-a-kind voice. Together they created a legacy of one of the longest exclusive relationships between artist and record label. 

 

On December 1, in observance of the tenth anniversary of Pavarotti's passing, Decca/UMe will release Luciano Pavarotti: The Complete Opera Recordings, encompassing 95 CDs and 6 Blu-ray Audio discs. The voluminous 101-disc limited edition collection offers an exhaustive survey of Pavarotti's Decca, Deutsche Grammophon and Philips recordings plus two recordings made for EMI/Warner Classics: L’amico Fritz and Don Carlo.
