Notes & Reviews:

Recorded in 1977 and 1979, this fabulous recital of Favourite Neapolitan songs is one of Luciano Pavarotti’s twelve original studio albums made during the course of his unparalleled career. Luciano Pavarotti presents here a captivating anthology of the Neapolitan song with all their beautiful melodies embodying the themes of love and passion so often associated with Naples. An aria linked inextricably to Pavarotti, 'O sole mio,' with its universal appeal, is coupled with 'Maria, Mari!' by Di Capua, 'Turna a surriento' by de Curtis and 'A vucchella' by Tosti, a setting of a poem by the famous Gabriele D’Annunzio.

Over the course of his brilliant career, Luciano Pavarotti became one of the most popular artists in the world as his voice touched us all. The Studio Albums comprise the twelve original studio albums Luciano Pavarotti recorded during the course of his unparalleled and historic career on Decca. One of the great musical icons of our time, to millions of people Luciano Pavarotti literally IS classical music. Luciano Pavarotti is the most popular classical artist in the history of the recording industry. Fully remastered with enhanced sound from original analogue tapes.
