Andrea Bocelli - The Pearl Fishers Duet



I have liked this piece of music by Georges Bizet for a very long time. Every time I hear it, it's as though for the first time.

It is from the opera 'The Pearl Fishers'. The copy I have is by two other tenors but Bocelli and Terfel do a wonderful job.

If this doesn't get you moving on this beautiful Sunday morning, nothing will. Enjoy.

  1. Good Morning!
    I've probably killed my downloads for the day, but I don't care, he's great. My brother went to see him several times and couldn't stop raving about his voice!
    Beautiful, simply beautiful!
