Notes & Reviews:
Long before Pavarotti, Domingo, and Carreras caught the public imagination there were three legendary tenors who became household names in their own lifetime. They were not contemporaries and never performed together, but each of them had his own distinctive sound and emotional appeal, which is why their records and their popularity have survived up to the present day. Caruso, Gigli, and Bjorling possessed three of the greatest voices we are ever likely to hear. This collection of some of their finest arias and songs shows why these three legendary tenors became singing superstars and why they have inspired and influenced succeeding generations of singers to this day. Digital transfers from 78s recorded between 1907 and 1938.
