This work commemorates the silver (25th) anniversary of Pavarotti's debut. Luciano Pavarotti's ringing, pristine sound set a standard for operatic tenors of the postwar era… Like Enrico Caruso and Jenny Lind before him, Mr. Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. He became a titan of pop culture. Millions saw him on television and found in his expansive personality, childlike charm and generous figure a link to an art form with which many had only a glancing familiarity.
Early in his career and into the 1970s he devoted himself with single-mindedness to his serious opera and recital career, quickly establishing his rich sound as the great male operatic voice of his generation—the 'King of the High Cs,' as his popular nickname had it (New York Times). In his later career, he made an impact through his sold-out concerts, his CD sales, and his identity as one of the "Three Tenors" alongside Domingo and Carreras. When asked about his popularity, he said simple: "I think an important quality that I have is that if you turn on the radio and hear somebody sing, you know it's me. You don't confuse my voice with another voice."
