Buona Notte, Luciano Pavarotti (1935-2007)

Above all, I am an opera singer.
This is how people will remember me.

"But no one ever mistook the voice of Luciano Pavarotti. There was the warm, enveloping sound: a classic Italian tenor voice, yes, but touched with a bit of husky baritonal darkness, which made Mr. Pavarotti’s flights into his gleaming upper range seem all the more miraculous." - Anthony Tommasini (NY Times)
