Product Description

Plácido Domingo, one of the greatest opera singers of all time, and one of the few classical musicians who can genuinely be considered a household name, is 70 in January 2011.In 2010 he proved he is still going strong through incredible performances of Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra at Covent Garden, his first performance as a baritone. He also appeared in the extremely popular live televised performances of Rigoletto. In his own words “If I rest I rust”!
To celebrate Domingo’s incredible career Sony releases this 70th-birthday tribute box set--a 12 CD-compendium of recordings made by Domingo from 1969-1989, including his 1969 label debut for RCA of Romantic Opera Arias. The enormously varied repertoire includes excerpts not only from career defining operas but also from rarely performed works. He duets with other outstanding singers of his generation such as sopranos Leontyne Price, Renata Scotto, Katia Ricciarelli and baritone Sherrill Milnes.
Also included are the albums of lighter Spanish and Latin American music--pieces that have been close to Domingo’s heart since his youth--and the recording of arias and duets by Zarzuela, with soprano Pilar Lorengar, recorded live at the 1983 Salzburg Festival. This collection provides a real feast for the ear and the spirit for the legions of Domingo’s admirers around the world. The collection is attractively packaged with original vinyl replica discs and original album artwork in a sturdy outer box.

Format: Audio CD
GREAT OPERATIC DUETS. Placido Domingo (tenor), Sherrill Milnes (baritone), London Symphony Or- chestra conducted by Anton Guad.. agno. RCA SER5593 (250).

PUCCINI. La Bohème: In un coupé? , . . 0 Mimi, tu pitk non torni, VERDI. La forza del destino: Solenne in quest'ora; Invano, Alvaro, ti celasti al mondo. I Vespri Siciliani: Sogno, o son desto? Quando al mio sen per te parlava. Don Carlo: 5 lui! desso! l'Infanta' ...Dio, che nell'alma infondere. Otello: Ahl mille vite - . - Si, pel ciel marmoreo giuro! BIzE'r. Les Pécheurs de Panes: Au fond du temple saint. PONCHIELLI. La Gioconda: Enzo Grimaldo, Principe di Santa Fior.

What echoes of golden ages gone! Or is this ambitious disc a demonstration of a new golden age beginning? I sincerely hope so. Domingo is not only the possessor of magnificent Italianate tenor voice, he is a keenly intelligent musician too, and one not too proud or pigheaded to learn. Mimes shows comparable qualities, though, to be fair, intelligent baritones have not been as rare as intelligent tenors. A perfectly matched team, and it is no wonder that Thomas Heinitz is quoted on the sleeve, suggesting that it is a partnership to carry on the great gramophone line from Caruso and Scotti (or Amato or Ruffo), Gigli (or Martinelli) and De Luca, to Bjorling and Merrill.
Certainly this is a sumptuous collection of the great tenor/baritone duets that inspired so many fine 78 records. But because the aim is so clearly to match the best of the 78 era, these are performances that demand to be judged by comparable standards. RL has argued very persuasively that recording conditions in the days of 78 brought a peculiar intensity not easily achieved in an LP period, when multiple recordings are the order of the day.
