RIP Pavarotti

Great voice, silenced.

By coincidence I had just ordered a recording of his Turandot, inspired by The Bean’s sudden interest in opera after hearing some Carmen on the radio and by the amazing rendition of “Nessun Dorma” by the amateur on Britain’s Got Talent.

The discs arrived yesterday. We’ll be listening to Pavarotti today. RIP.

  1. His rendition of Dalla’s “Caruso” is magnificent. (And the sound quality on this YouTube video isn’t bad. Your computer may vary.)
