The finest Pavarotti boxed set on the market, an ideal gift for collectors! This beautifully presented 'signature' edition (in a matte-finish clamshell box with silver-embossed detail) features almost 150 superb tracks from the world's most beloved tenor, on 9 DVDs with a bonus live concert DVD from the Gran Teatre Del Liceu in 1989.
I love opera! I love Puccini! Not only is the vocalism important to me, but the quality of the recording as well. I enjoy my hi-tech sound system. I like to feel as if I am sitting in the front row of the first balcony when I listen to opera. This CD is excellent! The vocalists were well chosen. The technical performances are eloquent and emotional, as Puccini should be. However, the quality of the recording is not very good. No matter how you adjust your sound system, the recording is a bit tinny and as a result, the emotional high points of the arias are not as vibrant as they could be if the recording were of better quality. I would recommend this CD to anyone who loves Puccini and who is not as finicky as I! !
