• Happy birthday, maestro Luciano Pavarotti live forever
He was called a classic during his lifetime. He was the only one who was able to popularize opera - it is thanks to his talent, classical music has experienced a renaissance in the late 20th century. Already as a child he rehearsed arias from famous operas. He was an amazing artist who could cancel the concert due to a football match, as a child dreamed of becoming a football player, not a great tenor of our time. Perfectly trained voice, sunny tone, incredibly bright personality, soulful singing, a kind heart - all these words, of course, the great tenor Luciano Pavarotti.
October 12 it could be filled 80. But did not happen: pancreatic cancer robbed us all of the great singer. Today we offer to remember the brightest moments of the life of the greatest genius of God.
Luciano was born on October 12, 1935 in Modena baker in the family and working factories for the manufacture of cigars. The family was very poor - sometimes not enough for the bare necessities - but despite this, Luciano always spoke fondly about his childhood.
In early childhood, Luciano was fond of football, and even wanted to become a goalkeeper, but did not work out. In 1943, his family had to leave his hometown and start farming. What is surprising now, but Luciano even started to enjoy it.
As for the music, the life she was always Luciano. His father had a stunning operatic voice and could make a brilliant career, but he was afraid of the stage and performed only in small halls. Even as a child small Luciano fell asleep under his father's voice, and a little grown up, enjoyed popular records at that time, Enrico Caruso, Beniamino Gigli, Giovanni Martinelli and Tito Schipa. Needless to say, that it soon came to fruition? At 9 years old he began to speak with his father, and later took lessons with Professor Dondi, although it is not attached any importance to this.
After graduation Luciano wanted to come to the sports academy, but the insistence of the mother got a job as a music teacher, which already knew he wanted to connect his life to music. At 19 he began to take lessons from the great maestro Arrigo, who opened all the talent of the future genius, and later - at Ettore Kampogalliani. It turned out, Pavarotti had perfect hearing.
However, he still was not sure of the success and gave the word to his father that if 30 years did not achieve anything, it gave up and will "earn a living than just be able to." After studying for 6 years, he still could not achieve any success, and even thought to engage with singing. He tried to connect his life insurance, in addition, at the time it was formed in the thickening of the vocal cords, that the singer is the end of everything. But with the recovery Pavarotti has acquired the sound production, which he could not be achieved by engaging with top teachers. Miracle? May be. But the main thing that distinguishes Pavarotti from others - it's talent and hard work.
Around this time he met his future wife, Adua Veroni, who was also an opera singer. However, the marriage did not last long. But Yar'Adua left its mark on the life of Pavarotti. Later, he admitted that it was she who made him think seriously about a career of an opera singer.
In 1961 Pavarotti wins the International Singing Competition, after which will debut in the theater of Reggio Emilia with the party in "La Boheme" J. Puccini, with her, he stands at the Vienna Opera and London's Covent Garden in 1963.
In 1965, Pavarotti debuted at the Opera Theater of Miami. Singer-tenor who was to speak in the evening, fell ill, and Joan Sutherland recommended Luciano, who was familiar with the role.
From this point on to Pavarotti comes real success. He performs great aria in at least the great theaters. So, the party Tonio in the opera "Daughter of the Regiment" Pavarotti lord brings international fame in 1966. In the same year he made his debut at Milan's "La Scala" with Tybalt party in "I Capuleti ei Montecchi".
Since the 70s he has consistently participated in the festival "Arena di Verona", participates in concerts, tours with "La Scala", performs the greatest party on the most famous stages in the world.
In the 80s, Pavarotti establish its own competition - competition for young talents, winners of which, among other things, periodically performed with the maestro. At the same time he collaborates with the Vienna State Opera and "La Scala" and works in a duo with Mirella Freni, Maria Chiara, Luca Ronconi.
February 24, 1988 Pavarotti enters the Guinness Book of Records - at the request of the audience Luciano encore ... 165 times.
At the age of 55 years Senor Pavarotti performs the impossible - it seeks to popularize opera music. After his speech at the opening of the aria Nessun Dorma Football World Cup reaches the top of the charts and the singer comes on the idea to carry classical music to the masses on. And after the merger with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, the light appears the great trio of tenors, whose repertoire consisted of a modernized opera arias.
One of the first he began to speak to the rock, and world-class pop artists: Bryan Adams, Sting, Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson, Liza Minnelli, Celine Dion, Joe Cocker, Bono, Eric Clapton, Elton John and other ...
I remember Pavarotti and his passion to cancel concerts, if on TV football match was to be held. Very much he loved the sport.
Pavarotti was the world-renowned tenor and a favorite of the public. It could not go unnoticed, and Luciano was awarded the prize in 1998 "Legend Grammy."
Soon the master found pancreatic cancer, which has caused the death of Pavarotti in 2007. He was buried in his hometown next to his parents and stillborn son.
