Pavarotti debut recording to be released after 50 years

50 years after he made his TV debut on British Television, Luciano Pavarotti’s first ever recording will be released.

The recording, an aria from Puccini’s La Boheme, was discovered by Pavarotti’s widow and will be remastered for its release in October.

The Italian Tenor, died of cancer in 2007 and was one of the most successful opera artists of all time. He first performed in front of a British audience in 1963, on Sunday Night At The London Palladium with Bruce Forsyth.

‘Che Gelida Manina‘, which translates as Your Tiny Hand Is Frozen has remained unheard in Pavarotti’s personal archives for five decades.

The recording will be released by Decca Records, as part of a compilation which will have 50 of his best songs including ‘Nessun Dorma‘. Pavarotti had several duets with stars including Frank Sinatra, Bono and Eric Clapton which will also feature on the album.

His widow, Nicoletta Mantovani said: “It is so wonderful that Decca is keeping Luciano’s memory alive in this way, particularly with the celebration of this momentous anniversary.”

Pavarotti was signed to Decca Records in 1963, the same year he performed at the Royal Opera House. With his performances as part of the the Three Tenors, he went on to enjoy commercial success and become a worldwide star.
