About

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the relationship between Luciano Pavarotti and Decca – a fitting occasion to marvel once again at the sheer quality of the voice of the 20th Century’s greatest tenor.

This 27 CD survey reviews the totality of Pavarotti’s remarkably intense first decade with Decca. Everything the artist recorded for the company, from signing his contract until 1973, is here, allowing critics and collectors and opera lovers once more to appreciate his exceptional achievement in that first decade for the Decca label.

Every single track in the set has been remastered, under the supervision of long-term Decca balance engineer Philip Siney.

This is the first of three major releases in 'The Pavarotti Edition' in 2014.

The set includes an anniversary re-issue in vinyl of the famous May 1964 original first EP, cut by Pavarotti as his first recording for Decca – five arias including ‘Che gelida manina’ from La Bohème, ‘E lucevan le stelle’ from Tosca and three arias from Rigoletto. It also includes a Bonus CD of Arias featuring the newly re-surfaced recording of ‘Che gelida manina’ from Pavarotti’s debut performance of La Bohème on April 29, 1961 at the Teatro Muncipale in Reggio Emilia, before his contract with Decca even commenced in 1963.
