The Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo is still active as a singer and conductor. It’s amazing how active he still is considering his high age. Needless to say Domingo was one of The Three Tenors together with Pavarotti and Carreras.
To celebrate his 75th birthday on 21 January, 2016, a 2 CDs compilation entitled “Domingo: The 50 Greatest Tracks“ has just been released on Deutsche Grammophon. This compilation is also available on download and streaming.
It’s interesting that the album artwork is the same as the Pavarotti compilation “Pavarotti: The 50 Greatest Tracks“ from 2013.
This compilation contains a very good sample of the great Spanish tenor’s recordings on Deutsche Grammophon and Decca.
The Three Tenors are featured with “Nessun dorma!” from the first Three Tenors concert in Rome in 1990. Two arias by Domingo from the same concert is also featured on this compilation.
