In addition to arias, this set includes duets and ensembles with his most famous colleagues, including Joan Sutherland and Kiri Te Kanawa, with such conductors as Riccardo Muti, Georg Solti, Lorin Maazel and others.

CD Reviews

Sempre Pavarotti
Leonard C. Buck | Reno, Nevada | 05/19/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the recorded presentation we have waited for,
with Pavarotti's best performances. This album, along
with his Donizetti album, show the "Big P," as Joan Sutherland
called him, at his freest of voice. Remember Pavarotti
with this album, rather than his bloated "And Friends" albums.
Celeste Pavarotti, la Voce Divina."
