Farewell Mr Pavarotti

Pavarotti, the opera side of him, tells me nothing more than what every simple mortal can see at once: a male powerful voice. Opera it’s a musical style which I can not integrate in my list of favorite music styles. But Pavarotti it’s much more than Opera as he decided, at some point of his […]
