pavarotti-the-50-greatest-tracks-078841591

The great British label, Decca, launched the career of one of the greatest tenors of the 20th century: Luciano Pavarotti. 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Pavarotti’s debut on that label. As an artist, Pavarotti truly bridged the gap between opera and pop culture. He said himself, “Some of the great opera arias themselves are really the best pop songs ever written.”
