Nessun Dorma

Learning music by reading about it is like making love by mail.
-Luciano Pavarotti

The great voice of Luciano Pavarotti will sing no more. He died Thursday morning in Modena of cancer. I enjoyed his emotional intensity in his operatic voice, he could move the coldest heart to tears with "Ave Maria." He was an intense man in everything -a true bon vivant.

I appreciate how he brought his voice and talent to new genres and audiences therefore bringing the joy of opera to tender young ears. In honor of him go and experience some good music.
