Farewell.....


Arguably one of the greatest tenors of our time passed away this morning at the age of 71. There are no words to describe how amazing this man's voice was. He is the reason i expanded my musical ears to opera. So much noise had been made about this man and the 3 tenors (including Placiddo Domingo and Jose Carreras) so i dashed out to get The essential Luciano Pavarotti cd and that was it. Hooked.
Rest in Peace Mr Pavarotti and i think you succeeded in achieving what few cannot - immortalizing your name............
Playing today on my blog will be one of my favorite pieces by him - O Sole Mio
