Luciano Pavarotti
I always admired the God-given glory of his voice that unmistakable special timbre from the bottom up to the very top of the tenor range. ... I also loved his wonderful sense of humor.
Pavarotti quotes
I think an important quality that I have is that if you turn on the radio and hear somebody sing, you know it's me. You don't confuse my voice with another voice.
Pavarotti
Pavarotti made a profound contribution not only to music and the arts, but also to people in need around the world. His work for children particularly those affected by armed conflict stretched from Afghanistan to Liberia and beyond. By staging concerts and marshaling talented friends to help raise funds, he generated millions of dollars for humanitarian aid.




Pavarotti Luciano quotes
Some can sing opera, Luciano Pavarotti was an opera.
No one could inhabit those acrobatic melodies and words like him.
He lived the songs, his opera was a great mash of joy and sadness; surreal and earthy at the same time; a great volcano of a man who sang fire but spilled over with a love of life in all its complexity, a great and generous friend. ... I spoke to him last week... the voice that was louder than any rock band was a whisper. Still he communicated his love. Full of love.
That's what people don't understand about Luciano Pavarotti. Even when the voice was dimmed in power, his interpretive skills left him a giant among a few tall men.
Pavarotti Luciano
The whole world will be listening today to his voice on every radio and television station, and that will continue. And that is his legacy. He will never stop,
Luciano Pavarotti quotes
I had the pleasure of not only performing for him in tribute, but performing in his stead at the Grammy Awards in 1998, singing 'Nessun Dorma.' I had one magnificent and absolute and defining moment when he came to the stage to thank me for my performance. The world has lost one of the greatest voices of all time.
Luciano Pavarotti
I'm not a politician, I'm a musician. I care about giving people a place where they can go to enjoy themselves and to begin to live again. To the man you have to give the spirit, and when you give him the spirit, you have done everything.
Pavarotti Luciano quotes
In opera, as with any performing art, to be in great demand and to command high fees you must be good of course, but you must also be famous. The two are different things.
Pavarotti
It is not always a matter of wild ovations and legendary performances. Sometimes you are just happy to get through an opera without trouble.
Pavarotti Luciano
Nothing that has happened has made me feel gloomy or remain depressed. I love my life.
Luciano Pavarotti
He was always helpful to me, supporting me in my very difficult moments as well, due also to a severe illness. He was very close to me, he was calling me quite often and giving me a lot of support and putting me in the right spirit.




Luciano Pavarotti quotes
I am a very simple person. In spite of all that has happened to me, I have tried to remain the simple person I started out.
Luciano Pavarotti
For all three of us, the Caracalla concert was a major event in our lives. I hope I am not immodest to think it was also unforgettable for most of the people who were present.
Pavarotti quotes
As an art form, opera is a rare and remarkable creation. For me, it expresses aspects of the human drama that cannot be expressed in any other way, or certainly not as beautifully.
Pavarotti Luciano
Penso che una vita per la musica sia una vita spesa bene ed ? a questo che mi sono dedicato.
