Wynne Evans: Wynne - an album guide
Ever since this piece was recorded by the great tenor Enrico Caruso, with the composer, Leoncavallo, at the piano, it's been a concert favourite. Wynne Evans adds his name to the list of great tenors to tackle the tune, including Mario Lanza, Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, and José Carreras. "Take your minds back to Italia 1990 and, more importantly for me, The Three Tenors' concert. When I heard this song, it ignited something inside me, and still does to this day. Its full of life."
