Limited 14CD Box Set!

Roberto Alagna rose to prominence in 1988 when he won the Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition following an invitation to audition by the maestro; he was twenty-four years old.

He made his professional debut as Alfredo Germont in Verdi's La traviata with the Glyndebourne Touring Company and in just a few years, the greatest international stages, from New York to Vienna and London, opened their doors to him. Gramophone compared the tenor favourably with the young Pavarotti: "For those who have yet to hear of him let me explain that Roberto Alagna is a French tenor of Sicilian parents who won the 1988 Pavarotti Prize and bids fair to succeed the big man if he is given space to develop in his own time."

Years of relentless work are concentrated in this boxset, displaying the quintessential fruit of Roberto Alagna's art. Gathering his essential studio albums on 14 CDs, each of these albums reflects a specific musical ambition which translates in a methodical exploration of the vocal repertoire, whether it is Berlioz or Verdi, Italian verismo, bel canto or French repertoire.

"...he brings a loose rhythmic ease and a variety of colors to each number. Open-throated power, supported tone and long breath provide vocal class without distancing him emotionally, and he throws in a few high notes with good-natured bravura... even in its tearful moments the entire disc exudes a sunny charm..." - Opera News on Pasión
