UK Singles Chart - #2, 1990 - Nessun dorma

"... the cast list is spicy with promise, all of it richly fulfilled ..."
- Gramophone

"... Sutherland gives an intensely revealing and appealing interpretation ... Pavarotti gives a performance equally imaginative, beautiful in sound, strong on detail. Mehta directs a gloriously rich and dramatic performance, superlatively recorded, still the best-sounding Turandot, while the reading also remains supreme."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

The world's most famous tenor performs the world's most famous tenor aria, Nessun dorma, on this 1972 recording of Giacomo Puccini's Turandot. It became Luciano Pavarotti's signature aria: he performed it at his final concert. Pavarotti even managed a hit single on the charts with this recording in 1990 when it was used on the BBC's World Cup telecasts. The aria charted again in 2007 after this version was played at his funeral. In addition to Pavarotti, the star-studded recording features Joan Sutherland, Montserrat Caballé, Nicolai Ghiaurov, conductor Zubin Mehta and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
