DESCRIPTION

Plácido Domingo is a world-renowned, multifaceted artist. Recognized as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera, he is also a conductor and a major force as an opera administrator in his role as general director of two companies: Los Angeles Opera and Washington National Opera. This is Plácido Domingo´s first Baritone album and has recording this repertoire now for the first time on CD. The recording contains arias from Verdi´s most famous operas such as La Traviata, Simon Boccanegra, Macbeth, Don Carlo and Rigoletto.

As a singer, his repertoire encompasses 140 roles, both as tenor and baritone, with more than 3500 career performances and more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias and duets and crossover discs. His work in the recording studio has earned him 12 Grammy Awards, three of which are Latin Grammys, and he has made more than 50 music videos. In addition to three feature opera films — Carmen, La Traviata and Otello — he voiced the role of Monte in Disney’s Beverly Hills Chihuahua, played himself on The Simpsons, and his telecast of Tosca from the authentic settings in Rome was seen by more than one billion people in 117 different countries.

His appearances around the world with his colleagues José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti in the now legendary The Three Tenors concerts are one of the great musical success stories of the 1990s. Verdi played the largest part in Domingo´s long career. His debut as an opera singer was in the part of Borsa in Rigoletto. After he has sung 22 of Verdi tenor roles and has recorded all of Verdi´s tenor arias, he now is in the process of exploring all of Verdi´s baritone roles.

Plácido Domingo is accompanied by the Orquestra de la Comunítat Valencíana under the direction of conductor Pablo Heras-Casado, who enjoys an unusually varied conducting career, encompassing the great symphonic and operatic repertoire, historically-informed performance and cutting-edge contemporary scores.
