  • Let’s hope it is better than his unimaginative Decca set from 1972, grossly overrated by the much-too-influential British critics, and oversold, despite the good work of Caballé and Pavarotti.

    Turandot needs a strong, strong conductor … like Karajan!

    • Strange some nonsensical people keep saying Bocelli is not ‘classical’. Just because he’s exposed to pop does not mean that it devalues him in any way. On the contrary, he is perhaps a better musician than Pavarotti, whose voice is so creepy small and feminine at times.

      Determine ‘classical’ for peace’s sake!
