Luciano Pavarotti gave Mr. Ballarini some memorable advice.
I wasn't used to working with a conductor, and I had a solo, Mr. Ballarini recalled. The conductor lowered the baton at the rehearsal, and all of a sudden I played the opening solo twice as fast as it should have been played. So Pavarotti says, 'Hey, take it easy �� it's-a your solo.' So I took it easy and I had-a my solo.
