MMO brings you in this album a thrilling collection of tenor arias from the great Giuseppe Verdi, Italy's most beloved 19th-century opera composer. Given first in their complete form with master tenor Miroslav Christoff and the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra, and then again with just the sumptuous orchestral accompaniments for your learning and performance pleasure, these arias will give you a tremendous opportunity to learn an important section of the Italian repertoire. From the classic, rousing 'Questa o quella' from Rigoletto to the soul-searching, impassioned 'Merce, dilette amici' of Ernani, this collection presents a magnificent cross-section of great arias from the Italian opera for tenor and orchestra.

Includes a printed vocal score on high-quality ivory paper, with informative liner notes; and a CD+G graphics-enabled compact disc with complete versions (with soloist) followed by stereo orchestral accompaniments to each piece, minus the soloist.

About CD+G
CD+G (CD+Graphics) is a special disc format in which simple graphics and text are stored in the sub channels of an audio disc. When you play a CD+G disc in a CD+G compatible player (like a karaoke machine), lyrics and images appear on the monitor or TV screen in time to the music. If you play a CD+G disc in a regular CD player, you'll still be able to hear the music and sing along to your favorite tracks, but the graphics features won't function. The CD+G format is a fun and useful learning tool!
