Synopsis

Who would have guessed that 10 years after it became the theme tune for the 1990 Football World Cup, "Nessun Dorma" would still be doing good business? And if tenors show no sign of going out of vogue, this DG production with 19 arias from 12 great tenors will help to keep the ball rolling. Yes, the Three Tenors are here--Domingo, Pavarotti, and Carreras--but so are figures such as Fritz Wunderlich and Carlo Bergonzi. And how marvelous to see that most intelligently musical British tenor Anthony Rolfe Johnson opening the CD. But that's not all. Lurking in the digital depths is interactive CD-ROM material that lets you play the music on your PC while studying the score, make your own interpretations in MIDI format, edit the score to your own liking, and make high-quality printouts. There is extensive information on each piece, including all words and translations (you can choose English, French, German, or Spanish) and brief biographies of the performers. This all comes with a comprehensive Help file. The cover is strangely modest about the multimedia element--to get all this added value for no more than the price of a normal audio CD seems extraordinary. --Keith Clarke
