Luciano Pavarotti with His Father – Panis Angelicus –
Luciano Pavarotti was the best-selling classical singer and humanitarian known for his most original and popular performances with the ‘Three Tenors’ and ‘Pavarotti & Friends’.
He was born on October 12, 1935, in Modena, Emilia-Romagna, in Northern Italy. He was the first child and only son of two children in the family of a baker. His father, Fernando Pavarotti, was a gifted amateur tenor, who instilled a love for music and singing in young Luciano. His mother, Adele Venturi, worked at the local cigar factory. Young Pavarotti showed many talents. He first sang with his father in the Corale Rossi, a male choir in Modena, and won the first prize in an international choir competition in Wales, UK. He later said that this was the most important experience of his life, and that it inspired him to become a professional singer.
