Pavarotti's Greatest Hits
by Various Artists
Released: Sep 2007
Issued just days after his death, this retrospective makes an apt, if woefully abridged, farewell. As the most celebrated post-war tenor, his performance of arias from La Boheme, Carmen, and Il Trovatore destroyed idiomatic barriers and made Pavarotti an ambassador of modern opera. But by spotlighting the so-called "king of the high C" performing lesser-known corners of the repertoire, like Verdi's mournful "Messa da Requiem," the compilation reminds us that we've lost not only our century's most venerated tenor, but one of our greatest musical teachers.
