I am a true opera novice. I only recently started listening to Opera after a few weeks ago I was dragged to see one at the Metropolitan Opera. Didn’t expect to love the show or even to grow to love the music, but I did! When I got home I decided to purchase the Album and got this one as it had great reviews. I’ve an Elementary or lower-intermediate knowledge of Italian and this helps someone like me to appreciate this art form even more. In fact listening actually helps me improve my italian after a while. I don’t know anything about crescendos or arias or allegros or why a conductor waves those drumsticks around or whatever- but I can say that there is SO much emotion coming from many of singers voices on this recording. My friends think I’m crazy when I put it on because we tended to be more of a Rock, Pop and Alternative-Jazz crowd. I just love this album and I’ve listened to it almost every day since receiving it. Check it out!
Product description No Description Available.Genre: Classical MusicMedia Format: Compact DiskRating: Release Date: 1-JAN-2002 Amazon.com The score for La Bohème comes to glowing life under Herbert von Karajan’s baton, and Mirella Freni and Luciano Pavarotti make beautiful music together as the ill-fated lovers. The smaller parts are wonderfully sung, the comedy sharply profiled, and the pathos contained in such a way that the opera’s ending proves remarkably gripping. London’s sound is excellent. –Ted Libbey
Puccini: La Boheme Review
Pavoratti makes this opera so much better, if possible. -Read Reviews-
Surely the most beautiful vocal music ever recorded. Pavarotti knew this was his good luck opera, and no one has ever sung it better. And no one has ever paired with him better than Mirelle Freni== try to think of another soprano who could be heard while singing with that big bear. She is strong and subtle, with great classic Italian diction and a sense of humor. She and Pavarotti had the same wet nurse and she said “Guess who got all the milk?”Be sure your item has the libretto with it. It has the full text in Italian, English, French and German so you can find out what a gelida manina is.
