“Learning music by reading about it, is like making love by mail.”
– Luciano Pavarotti
Luciano Pavarotti (12 October 1935 – 6 September 2007) was an Italian operatic tenor who also crossed over into popular music, eventually becoming one of the most commercially successful tenors of all time. He made numerous recordings of complete operas and individual arias, gaining worldwide fame for the brilliance and beauty of his tone (especially into the upper register) and eventually established himself as one of the finest tenors of the 20th century.
Below you will see some nice and interesting videos with Pavarotti. He shows everybody that music is for everybody with an open heart. There are no rules about what categories you belong to. If you love what you do, and it has a good purpose, just do it.
