Adieu, Pavarotti

This was an extremely sad week in the world of music, as Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti passed away from cancer. I have posted this video -of a performance of Paccini's Nessum Dorma- before; the graphic quality is not that great, but it has the best sound on youtube, and it shows just how much Pavarotti loved this song, so it's worth posting again.

Nessum dorma stasera, except for Pavarotti. May he rest in peace...

And if you're interested in the physiological and musical development of tenors and sopranos, here is a link to a Slate Explainer article explaining how Pavarotti, like a good wine, got better with age.
