Decca/UMe Marks The Tenth Anniversary Of Larger-Than-Life Opera Legend Luciano Pavarotti's Passing With Massive Limited Edition 101-Disc Box "Luciano Pavarotti: The Complete Opera Recordings"


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Prior to his passing in 2007, the legendary tenor Luciano Pavarotti conquered the mainstream like no opera performer ever had, winning a devoted worldwide audience that embraced his charismatic personality and commanding talent. Pavarotti spent most of his five-and-a-half-decade career recording for the venerable Decca label, building a powerful body of recordings that showcased the singular magnificence of his one-of-a-kind voice. Together they created a legacy of one of the longest exclusive relationships between artist and record label.

On December 1, in observance of the tenth anniversary of Pavarotti's passing, Decca/UMe will release Luciano Pavarotti: The Complete Opera Recordings, encompassing 95 CDs and 6 Blu-ray Audio discs. The voluminous 101-disc limited edition collection offers an exhaustive survey of Pavarotti's Decca, Deutsche Grammophon and Philips recordings plus two recordings made for EMI/Warner Classics: L'amico Fritz and Don Carlo.

The Complete Opera Recordings spans the entire career of "The People's Tenor," presenting every role he ever performed, beginning with his debut recording of La Bohème in 1961, allowing critics, collectors and fans to fully appreciate Pavarotti's exceptional achievements. In all, it features 34 complete operas plus a number of operas he recorded more than once: Verdi's Un Ballo in Maschera, Rigoletto, Il Trovatore and La Traviata; Donizetti's L'Elisir d'amore; and Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci.
