Luciano Pavarotti’s relationship with Decca – both when it came to operas and (particularly later) with regards to recital and aria albums – was an enduring one which has left the label as custodian of the great singer’s remarkable catalogue.
On November 3, Decca will release a box-set containing the tenor’s complete opera recordings, embracing every role he ever put on disc. The set includes his debut performance of La bohème from his hometown of Modena. While the label promises all the recordings will be presented in the ‘best-possible quality’, 21 of them have been remastered at 24-bit. The set also features original album sleeves and a hardback book, and is comprised of 101 CDs and six Blu-ray Audio discs. It will sell for about £160.
