Well, I promised some of you I'd try to speed this up to the correct pitch, so here it is. Enjoy...NOW it sounds like Pavarotti! I can't believe how stupid some people are, thinking that other recording was in the correct speed. Get a new pair of ears people. Anyone with the slightest degree of sense would be able to pick out the problem immediately. To quote Stefan Zucker from the Bel Canto Society, "If you don't get the speed right, not only is the sound off pitch but it is also off in timbre, or sonority." Not only does Pavarotti sound better now, his notes stand out more than in the one played at the wrong speed. Anyway, this truly is a sensational performance. Young Pavarotti in all his glory. His Covent Garden performances of 'Fille' were even better than the ones he did at the Met, in my opinion. Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, UK, 1967.
