Notes & Reviews:

EMI Classics celebrates Plácido Domingo’s illustrious 50 years on stage with this exciting 2-CD set of his greatest hits. A worldrenowned, multifaceted artist, Domingo, now in his late sixties, is recognized as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera. His repertoire encompasses 130 stage roles – a number unmatched by any other celebrated tenor in history. His more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias and duets, and crossover discs include EMI’s albums of Wagnerian roles that he has not sung on stage: Siegfried in both Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, and Tristan in a complete recording of Tristan und Isolde.

BBC Music Magazine
Mozart to zarzuela, Handel to Wagner - this generous collection confirms that our greatest tenor is also our most versatile and musically rewarding whatever style.
