Pavarotti celebrates the 25th anniversary of his operatic debut as Rodolfo at Reggio Emilia. We celebrate with him as the scrapbook of his triumphs opens appropriately at Rodolfo's narrative—spacious, impulsive, finely phrased and glorious in the shining resonance of that unique timbre. The three excerpts from Andrea Chenier show him in much less imaginative form; the opening of ''Come un bel di di maggio'' is certainly not the singing of a poet. His more scrupulous musicianship does justice to Verdi's careful markings in the score of ''Dei miei bollenti spiriti''; he sings the Mefistofele arias most beautifully; and his dramatic sense is fully engaged in the fine solo from the last act of Un ballo in maschera. The priceless gift of his resources stands revealed in full splendour when we hear the ideally equipped Arnoldo's call to arms in Guillaume Tell. In about half the number of minutes I think I counted seven top Cs: long may they ring.'
