Large half-length colour role portrait photograph of the tenor as the Duke of Mantua in Verdi's Rigoletto. Signed in full and dated 94
by PAVAROTTI, Luciano 1935-2007
"Pavarotti had a bright, incisive tenor with a typically free, open, Italianate production and penetrating high notes. He made it a practice never to sing beyond his own means; even when he tackled more dramatic roles such as Otello late in his career he never forced his fundamentally lyric tenor. Above all he had a directness of manner that went straight to his listeners' hearts. His voice and style were ideally suited to Donizetti, the early and middle-period works of Verdi (he was particularly admired as Alfredo and Gustavus III) and to Puccini's Rodolfo and Cavaradossi." Alan Blyth and Stanley Sadie in Grove Music Online.. Ca. 363 x 278 mm. (14.25" x 11"). (Inventory #: 24327)
